Esurance Earns a Spot as a Top Workplace in Tampa Bay

______

San Francisco, CA — May 1, 2012

Esurance, the direct-to-consumer personal car insurance company, announced today that the Tampa Bay Times has selected it as one of the 2012 "Tampa Bay Times Top Workplaces."

This is the third straight year that Esurance has made the list of best places to work in Tampa Bay.

The evaluation process for this program — administered by Workplace Dynamics — uses survey feedback from employees to assess a company's values and corporate culture. As part of the survey, employees answer questions on several topics, including practices and policies that make the company one of the best places to work. Then the company receives a final ranking based on leadership, compensation and training, workplace flexibility, and diversity. This year, 75 companies were nominated and close to 23,000 employees responded to the surveys.

Esurance's high marks are validation for its efforts to foster a dynamic, inclusive, and diverse workplace that values individual achievement and promotes personal development. Esurance received a similar honor last week, earning a spot on the "Best Places to Work in New Jersey" list, published by NJBIZ and the Best Companies Group (BCG).

"At Esurance, we strive to create a warm, welcoming environment where every associate is a valued individual," said Sandy Hynes, Esurance vice president of human resources. "We also encourage our associates to give back to the communities where they live and work. This award reinforces that Esurance is a special workplace where associates can build rewarding careers with competitive compensation and opportunities for growth."

Esurance expects to hire more than 600 new employees in 2012 for the various disciplines across the company. At least 40 of those positions will be in the Tampa office, in areas such as claims and sales. Associates with the company enjoy competitive salaries, a generous bonus system, and a comprehensive benefits package that includes 401(k) matching, tuition reimbursement, flex time, and a charitable gift-match program.
