August 9, 2022 – New Hartford, NY – Utica Mutual Insurance Company, as the principal member company of the Utica National Insurance Group, with offices in New York and six other states, has been named a Top Insurance Workplace by Insurance Business America magazine for the fifth straight year. From the hundreds of organizations that participated nationwide, only 63 hit the high standard needed to secure a spot on the list, including Utica Mutual, the 108-year-old property/casualty company headquartered in Central New York.

The company, which employs more than 1,300 people countrywide, was 1 of just 12 companies to place in the "large employer" category. An anonymous group of Utica National and Founders Insurance employees completed a form evaluating their workplace on several metrics, including benefits, compensation, culture, employee development, and more.

“We’re extremely fortunate to have an amazing group of team members that work together to make Utica National a uniquely valuable place to work and to do business with,” said Richard Creedon, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of the Group's member companies. "It’s that comradery that helps us to be at our best when our customers need us the most.”

“Our company has been able to evolve into a hybrid workforce over the last two years, which has helped strengthen our working relationships through the flexibility to accommodate our own individual working styles and personal needs,” added Kristen Martin, President and Chief Operating Officer. “We’re grateful to receive this recognition for the fifth straight year as it only helps to further strengthen our company culture – Today, Tomorrow, Together.”

The organization has offices in the following cities: Duluth, Georgia; Des Plaines, Illinois; Wakefield, Massachusetts; New Hartford, New York; Woodbury, New York; Columbus, Ohio; Richardson, Texas; and Richmond, Virginia.

Utica National offers employees a generous benefits package, retirement and savings programs, learning and training programs, matching gifts to colleges, a paid volunteer day each year, health and wellness programs, an employees’ club, and Toastmasters International membership, among many other things. The company also offers remote work capability, has a leadership development program, and puts emphasis on growing careers.
