Heffernan Insurance Brokers Receives “Best Place to Work” Designation from Two California Business Journals

Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Heffernan Insurance Brokers, one of the largest full-service, independent insurance brokerage firms in the United States, recently was named one of the “Best Places to Work” by the North Bay Business Journal and the Orange County Business Journal.

The rankings for Orange County Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” will be released in the Journal’s October 29, 2012 issue. Winners were chosen based on a company assessment that took into account an employer benefits and policies questionnaire along with an employee engagement and satisfaction survey.

The North Bay Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” distinction took into account several criteria such as employee survey results, number of responses, company size, and written responses by employees. Heffernan’s Petaluma office received the distinction and will be honored during a reception on Tuesday, September 11, 2012. The rankings will be issued in the Journal’s September 24, 2012 issue.

One of the key components of Heffernan’s workplace success is the fact that the company encourages its employees to give back to local, area nonprofits by donating work hours to volunteering efforts. Heffernan not only specializes in insurance for nonprofits, it also created the Heffernan Foundation in 2006 to support the Heffernan Group’s dedication and commitment to social responsibility through employee philanthropy, volunteerism and education. The Foundation is dedicated to giving generously in the communities where its employees work and live. To learn more about the Foundation, visit http://www.heffernanfoundation.com.

In 2011, Heffernan donated 22% of profit to charity.
