The newspapers' rankings celebrate outstanding companies whose employees rate them as the best in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. National MI was recognized as one of the top ten companies, along with companies including Intuit and Salesforce.
On Tuesday evening, the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal honored the finalists in an awards ceremony. National MI ranked ninth among the top 25 finalists in the mid-sized companies in the Bay area, a category comprised of companies with 100 to 249 employees.
Each year, the publications compile the annual list based on employee surveys that measure worker satisfaction across several areas including personal growth, workplace environment and managerial effectiveness.
"We are honored to be recognized as one of the top ten Best Places to Work," said Bradley Shuster, CEO of National MI. "Employee satisfaction and a collaborative, productive workplace are paramount at National MI, and this award is a reflection of that.
"National MI was recognized for offering competitive compensation and benefits, a balanced work-life environment, as well as an innovative culture that fosters employee creativity and contribution. As a relatively new company—National MI began writing business in 2013—the company has a start-up feel to it yet still operates in a traditional financial services environment," Shuster said.
"All of our employees are encouraged to voice their ideas and to make a contribution," said Mary Lee Sharp, vice president, human resources. "We've worked hard to create the best possible environment for our employees to flourish and find fulfillment in their careers."
