KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second straight year, Lockton Companies has been named to Forbes' list of America's Best Employers in the mid-size company category. The list, which contains only 300 mid-size employers nationwide, is compiled based on a survey that asks employees how likely they are to recommend their employers to someone else. In addition, survey participants are asked how they feel about other employers in their industry.
"We are honored to be named to Forbes' America's Best Employers list again this year," said Glenn Spencer, Lockton's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The fact that we were chosen based on feedback from our Associates as well as others in our industry makes it even more special."
