Erie Insurance Earns Great Place to Work® Certification

If someone anonymously asked you how you really felt about your job… what would you say?

Last year, Erie Insurance teamed up with the Great Place to Work Institute to conduct an employee survey of workplace experience. Results from the survey – and an audit of our practices – tell us how ERIE compares to other companies that want to make their place a great place.

The results are in: This year, Erie Insurance is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work®. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at ERIE. This year, 93% of employees said it’s a great place to work – 34 points higher than the average U.S. company.

Company Culture at Erie Insurance

Great Place to Work® Certification™ is the only recognition based entirely on what employees report about their workplace experience.

Being an award-winning employer is about more than benefits and perks (though we have those, too). Great Place to Work® uses a unique scoring system, called the Great Place to Work® Trust Model, to measure the deeper stuff, like credibility, respect, fairness, employee pride and camaraderie.

Here’s how our employees rated us and what they have to say about working at ERIE:

  • 97% said they felt welcomed when they joined the company
  • 95% said they are proud to tell others they work here
  • 95% feel good about the ways we contribute to the community
  • 95% say our customers would rate the service we deliver as “excellent”
