ORMOND BEACH, Fla., Aug. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovation. Fun. Compassion. While those words aren't traditionally associated with home insurance, they are at the core of Security First Insurance Company's vision, and a fundamental reason why it was selected for a second time as one of the Best Midsize Companies to Work for in Florida by Florida Trend.
Each year, Florida Trend honors 100 Florida companies that exhibit workplace excellence. The competition assessed each company's benefit programs, policies, practices and then did an in-depth analysis of leadership and planning, corporate culture and communications, work environment, and employee satisfaction.

The company currently employs 181 insurance professionals and is actively hiring. Security First Insurance is projected to employ over 200 competitively compensated professionals by the end of the year and is exploring locations to build a new headquarters in Volusia County.
Security First Insurance invests in their employees by actively promoting from within.

The company also offers a series of communication workshops and leadership luncheons to help employees expand their skills and to share company and industry information across the organization.

"Our culture, opportunities and innovative spirit have helped make our company one of the best performing Florida homeowner's insurance companies that is also one of the best places to work and build a career. This recognition is particularly meaningful because it is based entirely upon feedback received directly from our employees."
