MIAMI, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Windhaven™ Insurance, a Miami-based insurance carrier with more than 3,000 local independent agents, has been named "Best Places to Work in 2017," by South Florida Business Journal.
"We pride ourselves as a disruptive, high-tech, entrepreneurial company in what is traditionally perceived to be a stodgy industry," said Ben Turner, Windhaven™ Insurance President. "Our culture is fun and casual – shorts, no suits. Everyone puts in lots of hard work to help our independent agents succeed."
Turner said Windhaven, which was named "Best Places to Work" in 2015, enjoys events and themes that bring the team together over some competition and laughter. Company employees take part in everything from the Corporate Run, Tough Mudder, Battle Frog and Ragnar Races to Bring Your Kids to Work Day, bowling, dress up and karaoke contests.
Windhaven, which has written more than $1 billion in premium and served more than one million customers, is considered one of the fastest-growing private passenger auto carriers. SNL Financial ranked Windhaven™ No. 10 in Florida in 2015. The dramatic gains are attributed, in part, to a web-based ecommerce platform called "clutchinsurance," which allows local agents to sell auto insurance to customers online.
"We're the only carrier helping local agents sell insurance digitally," said Turner.
Windhaven has been named to the Inc. 5000; "Top Private Companies" by Florida Trend Magazine; and to the South Florida Business Journal's "Fast 50."
The Business Journal compiles the annual list of companies byasking employees across South Florida why their employers should be named one of the "Best Places to Work." Employees are asked to fill out confidential online surveys rating their employers in a program developed by Quantum Workplace. Windhaven will be honored Feb. 16, 2017 at the Signature Grand, in Davie, Fla.
