ROCKFORD, Ill., May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Rockford Mutual Insurance Company (RMIC) was recently named as one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Illinois. This awards program began in 2006, promoted by The Daily Herald Business Ledger in partnership with the Illinois Chamber of Commerce, MRA-The Management Association, the Small Business Advocacy Council and Best Companies Group.
This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses.
