FM Global named one of America’s Best Employers by Forbes

Commercial Property Insurer Ranks Number 275 on List

JOHNSTON, R.I., USA—FM Global, one of the world’s largest commercial property insurers, has been named one of “America’s Best Employers” for 2016 by Forbes magazine.

The company ranks number 275 on the list, is one of the highest ranked insurance companies, and is one of only two Rhode Island-based employers.

“Being a ‘best employer’ is important to us,” said Thomas A. Lawson, FM Global’s president and chief executive officer. “Our employees are FM Global, and their commitment drives the value and high quality of service we provide as a mutual insurance company to our client-owners. We’re proud that our employee retention rate is more than 93 percent and our average employee tenure is 13 years. In addition to an engaging work environment and providing meaningful job responsibilities, we offer educational assistance and abundant opportunities for professional development and career advancement. All of this ultimately benefits our clients.”

Working with online statistics provider Statista, Forbes asked more than 30,000 U.S. workers employed by companies with more than 5,000 staff members to determine, on a scale of zero to 10, how likely they were to recommend their employer to someone else. Further, how did they feel about the other employers in their industry? The resulting list includes 500 employers across 25 industries.
