FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ARAG® Among ‘Best Places to Work’ Three Years Running
Des Moines, Iowa, October 27, 2011 — ARAG, a global provider of legal solutions, has been named one of the best places to work in the insurance industry — an honor the company has received for three consecutive years.
Based on employee feedback, the designation is given annually by Business Insurance magazine. According to Peter Burke, President of Best Companies “only 10 out of the more than 50 companies honored in 2011 have received the honor the past three years in a row.”
“We are very proud to be among the prestigious group of companies named as best places to work in insurance, particularly because it comes from the input of our own employees,” said David Murray, ARAG President and CEO. “Achieving this honor is a testament to ARAG’s dedication to provide a healthy culture, world-class benefits and unique opportunities for our team members. We remain committed to finding innovative ways to enrich our career offerings for our team members.”
Selection for the Best Places to Work in Insurance list is based on an in-depth assessment of workplace benefits, policies and practices and an evaluation of employee engagement and satisfaction. The program is open to all publicly or privately held property and casualty insurers, group life and health insurers, agents and brokers, reinsurers and third-party administrators with at least 25 employees working in the United States and serving the commercial market.
In addition to the Best Places selection, ARAG is a four-time recipient of the Center of Excellence Award provided by Benchmark Portal. Only five to seven percent of companies that apply for this service excellence award pass the rigorous assessment review and achieve the overall performance results that are required for certification. An even smaller percentage of companies receive certification for consecutive years.

The company has an international premium base of nearly $2 billion and it protects 15.5 million individuals and their families — worldwide.
