“We are very proud to be recognized by Forbes for what we think has been in our DNA since my grandfather started the business in 1927 - the best environment to attract top talent. The fact that we are the only insurance brokerage company to be recognized makes us even prouder. No matter which geography our employees work from, we want each individual to be themselves, grow with us, and drive a positive impact—that’s The Gallagher Way,” said J. Patrick Gallagher, Jr., Chairman, President and CEO.
This second annual Forbes ranking is based on the independent collection and analysis of anonymous employee reviews conducted by Statista, a leading statistical agency in the U.S. From 360,000 global employee recommendations, Statista assembled the list of the 500 best employers in the world. One of the questions that Statista asked randomly selected employees was to evaluate their employer, asking among other things, whether they would recommend a friend to apply for a job.
Susan E. Pietrucha, Gallagher’s Chief Human Resources Officer emphasized, “This recognition is particularly meaningful because it signifies that our unique culture resonates with our nearly 30,000 employees around the globe. Employees, merger partners and clients choose Gallagher not just for our expertise but because we treat people with respect and work hard to help them grow and succeed. When you get down to what makes us excellent at what we do – it comes down to people who have always been at the center of the Gallagher Way.”
