Verisk’s certification is driven by an employee engagement survey which measured the extent to which employees across the organization reported a consistently great workplace experience, considering factors such as their daily encounters of innovation, inclusivity, company values and the effectiveness of its leaders. The survey found that 83% of Verisk teammates say it is a great place to work, compared to 59% of employees at the average U.S.-based company, and 92% agree that new employees are made to feel welcome.
“I’d like to thank each one of our more than 9,000 colleagues for earning this honor once again. The actions we each take daily, on behalf of our customers and colleagues, is a cornerstone of our culture,” said Sunita Holzer, Verisk’s Chief Human Relations Officer. “One way we learn from our colleagues is through engagement surveys, which are the centerpiece of a continuous loop of engagement, feedback, action and change. The responses inform everything from professional development opportunities to wellness programs to empower team members to reach their full potential.”

Opportunity, Wellness, Resilience and Giving Back
Focused on nurturing an inclusive environment and continually striving to develop a diverse and collaborative workforce, Verisk supports professional development by encouraging certification and continuing professional education in multiple disciplines. To promote the physical, mental and financial well-being of team members, Verisk provides a wide array of wellness programs and resources to help them achieve optimal health through good nutrition and exercise routines; greater emotional, psychological and social balance in their lives; and financial security for meeting day-to-day needs and long-term goals. These include online well-being classes such as high intensity training, meditation, yoga and mindfulness so that employees can practice from the comfort of their homes. Verisk also offers opportunities for paid time off to focus on wellness, such as its annual Well-being Day, an enterprise-wide day off for employees to exercise self-care in whatever way they prefer.
To support the causes its team is passionate about, Verisk encourages teammates to participate in Volunteer Week, dedicating time for charitable organizations and initiatives during the work week. During the eighth annual Volunteer Week, participants across 15 countries spent more than 2,500 hours volunteering in homeless shelters and city parks, building and repairing homes, stocking food pantries and engaging in many other service activities.
