The insurance brokerage’s giving is employee-driven, says Jordan Ready, director of alternative risk programs. She leads a committee of fifteen workers who will divvy up $157,000 in charitable gifts from Assurance this year, based on recommendations from other employees. The committee also helps organize volunteering events, such as trips to animal shelters and to a tennis tournament hosted by the local Special Olympics. “It’s absolutely rewarding to tell someone that we interviewed the charity partner you suggested,” says Ready, “and we’re going to be supporting them.” Read the Great Place to Work review here.
