    Employees feel “a sense of purpose and responsibility” at this Midwestern casualty insurer. It installed a permanent 65-foot Ferris “Charity Wheel” inside its headquarters for local fundraising events, and staffers can vote to direct its charitable giving. Other perks: a 45-foot climbing wall and a jeans-friendly dress policy. Learn more in the Great Place to Work review here.
