Westfield Named One of Best Employers in Ohio


Westfield Insurance was recently named as one of the “Best Employers in Ohio.” The annual list of "Best Employers in Ohio" was created by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – Ohio State Council and Best Companies Group.

This survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Ohio, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses. The “Best Employers in Ohio” list is made up of 25 companies.

Westfield Insurance was recognized for their family-friendly benefits. In addition to its flexible work arrangement programs, meals to go and on-site market and dry cleaning services, the company hosts numerous family-friendly events, such as Bring Your Child to Work Day and Jingle & Mingle with Santa, and employees can invite their families to join them any time for lunch in the dining facilities. With an emphasis on employee health and wellness, Westfield offers a full service fitness center as well as a full range of sponsored wellness programs. Other perks employees and their families enjoy include Mother's Day and Easter brunches, an employee 5K run and a craft fair where employees and retirees can sell their handmade craft items. Employees also have access to many discounts to local and national retailers, daycare facilities, and tire and car dealerships. Westfield Bank also frequently offers specials to employees.

"Westfield Insurance offers award winning training and recognition programs, an employee-focused culture and opportunities for career advancement. We take great pride in our employees, and this award proves our commitment," said Westfield Group Administration Leader Ed Largent.
