Esurance Named a Best Place to Work in New Jersey

San Francisco, CA — April 26, 2012

Esurance, the direct-to-consumer personal car insurance company, today announced that NJBIZ and the Best Companies Group (BCG) have recognized it as one of the 2012 "Best Places to Work in New Jersey."

Companies from all over New Jersey take part in this awards program, undergoing a two-part assessment process. The first part consists of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. Then employees take surveys to measure their experience with the company. The combined scores from both steps determine the top companies and final rankings.

Based on feedback from associates, Esurance's Basking Ridge office is a great place to work because of its friendly, supportive coworkers, strong management team and corporate culture, and bright future. Associates also appreciate perks like the casual dress code, flex time, paid time off for volunteering, and company celebrations. The award validates Esurance's efforts to create a dynamic and inclusive workplace that rewards individual achievement and promotes personal development.

"We're extremely proud that our associates see us as a best place to work," said Michael Magee, claims director in Esurance's Basking Ridge office. "Through our diversity and inclusion initiatives, our training programs, and our community service, we seek to provide associates with opportunities to grow their careers and enrich their daily lives."

Esurance expects to hire more than 600 new employees in 2012 in every discipline across the company. In particular, the New Jersey office expects to increase its claims staff by 30 percent. Associates at Esurance enjoy competitive salaries, a generous bonus system, and a comprehensive benefits package that includes 401(k) matching, tuition reimbursement, flextime, and a charitable gift-match program.
