SECURA earns Great Place to Work and WELCOA Platinum certifications

Published Thursday, June 16, 2016

SECURA Insurance was certified as a great workplace by the independent analysts at Great Place to Work®. The company earned this credential based on extensive ratings provided by its employees in anonymous surveys.

“It’s the relationships and family atmosphere that really make the difference,” said Dave Gross, SECURA President & CEO. “While benefits like our café and free on-site health clinic, as well as our profit sharing, community involvement, wellness programs, and flexible schedules contributed to this award, a culture of caring is the foundation of all we do, and can be seen in the survey responses.”

"We applaud SECURA for seeking certification and releasing its employees' feedback," said Kim Peters, Vice President of Great Place to Work's Recognition Program. "These ratings measure the company’s capacity to earn its employees' trust and create a great workplace — critical metrics that anyone considering working for or doing business with SECURA should take into account as an indicator of high performance."

“According to our study, 96 percent of SECURA employees say it is a great workplace,” says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Great Place to Work's Senior Editor. Employees completed 534 surveys, resulting in a 90 percent confidence level and a margin of error of ± 1.63. A summary of the Great Place to Work ratings can be found at

One of the many reasons associates rate the company so highly is because of the health and wellness benefits it offers. In addition to the Great Place to Work certification, The Wellness Council of America (WELCOA), with local affiliate Wellness Council of Wisconsin, recently awarded SECURA with its highest level Platinum Well Workplace Award, ranking it as one of America’s Healthiest Companies. The Platinum Award recognizes an organization for its commitment to the health and wellbeing of its employees. The award’s initiative is driven by a rigorous set of criteria outlined in WELCOA’s seven benchmarks that include a supportive environment, evaluations, and wellness teams to foster a results-oriented Well Workplace.
