The Utica National Insurance Group has been named a top insurance workplace by Insurance Business America magazine for the second straight year.

Utica National, which employs 1,300 people countrywide, was 1 of just 5 companies to place in the “large employer” category. Over 175 employees completed an anonymous survey and provided their overall impressions of the company, rating it on a number of metrics, including work environment, compensation, benefits and incentives, culture, employee development and more.
“Our company’s mission is to make people feel secure, appreciated and respected – and that begins with our team members,” said Rich Creedon, Utica National’s Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. “Whether they’ve been with us a short time or 40 years, we want everyone to enjoy coming to work and contribute to helping others – including our agents, policyholders and vendors – feel the same way.”
“We’ve accomplished so much working as a team over our company’s long history,” added Kristen Martin, Utica National’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “Being recognized once again by Insurance Business America is a testament to the hard work and dedication that have helped us thrive into our second century, and we’re grateful for this honor.”
