CINCINNATI, Oct. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- At HORAN, we don't just stand behind our work. We stand behind the people who make it possible.
A positive work environment is essential to a healthy business and has been a central component of our success. We're proud to announce that HORAN, a leading advisor in employee benefits and financial services, has earned a place among the country's Best Small and Medium Workplaces recently announced by consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune.
HORAN won this accolade based on employees' anonymous responses to an extensive survey about their levels of trust, pride and camaraderie at work. Great Place to Work reviewed the survey results of more than 52,000 employees from hundreds of companies in the ranking process. Among the findings from the study: trust fuels business performance. For example, the Best Small and Medium Workplaces enjoy roughly three times the revenue growth of their peers, even as they provide a better experience for their people.
"We're so excited and honored to have our company win this award," said Terence L. Horan, CLU, ChFC, President & CEO of HORAN. "We believe a large part of our success in meeting clients' needs is our culture. We work hard every day to make our company a great place to work. Our employees achieve this through their dedication, strong work ethic and enthusiasm for their work."
HORAN came in 42 out of 100 organizations included in the Best Medium Workplaces list.
"There's a generosity of spirit that infuses the Best Small and Medium Workplaces—one that has a measurable return," said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work. "Whether it's funding employee 'passion projects' or giving surprise gifts to customers, the best workplaces give it away. And they get it back in the form of inspired people who innovate harder and generate higher revenue."
The Best Small and Medium Workplaces is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work-CertifiedTM organizations.
For over 65 years, HORAN has served as a trusted advisor and thorough planner in the areas of life insurance for estate and business planning, employee benefits consulting and wealth management.

About The Best Small and Medium Workplaces
Published together with our partner, Fortune, the Best Small & Medium Workplaces rankings are based entirely upon feedback from more than 52,000 employees at Great Place to Work–Certified companies. Employees completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, for example, their assessment of the honesty and quality of communication by managers, degree of support for employees' personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues.
Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 5% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by creating a great place to work for all – not only do the majority of their employees experience the company as a great place to work, but this experience is consistent across the organization, regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, job role, or other personal characteristics. The companies with the highest employee ratings compared with organizations of the same complexity in size and scope were selected for the list. Companies with fewer than 100 employees compete for placement on the 50 Best Small Workplaces list, and companies between 100 and 999 employees compete for placement on the 100 Best Medium Workplaces list.
