â€œFirst and foremost, to be recognized by our own employees is a great measuring stick for our success,” said Sahouri vice president Michael Sahouri. “We first set out to create a family business. Then we set out to create a family within the business. This award is a testament to that vision.â€

This nationwide award is open to all publicly and privately held insurance companies with at least 25 employees. All nominees were involved in a two-step evaluation process. To honor the awarded companies, an in-depth report will be published on Business Insurance Journalâ€™s September issue.
The first stage of the evaluation process involved of a â€˜confidential employee engagement and satisfaction surveyâ€™ which provides a basic overview of a companyâ€™s workplace environment and culture. The second stage consisted of questions addressing benefit programs, policies and practices.
