FM Global Soars 163 Places to #112, One of the Largest Leaps in Forbes’ 2017 ‘America's Best Employers' List


LONDON, UK—FM Global, one of the world’s largest commercial property insurers, has risen 163 places to #112 among “America’s Best Employers” for 2017 by Forbes magazine—one of the largest moves in this year’s list. The company is also the #2 highest-ranked insurance company on the list, and #1 in Rhode Island for having “the most satisfied employees.”


To compile what Forbes describes as “the definitive list of the best employers in America,” it worked with research firm Statista, which surveyed 30,000 American workers for their opinions of their employers. On a scale of one to 10, Statista asked how likely they were to recommend their organisation to friends or family. Employees also were asked to recommend other companies outside of their own. The resulting list includes 500 employers across 25 industries.


“Clearly our employees believe FM Global is a great place to work. Whether they are just beginning their careers with us or are experienced professionals, they receive competitive compensation, a comprehensive benefits package, and learning and development opportunities to support them in building a rewarding career,” said Thomas A. Lawson, FM Global’s president and chief executive officer. “As a mutual insurance company, such employee dedication ultimately makes FM Global the acknowledged leader in providing property loss prevention engineering services and insurance to our client-owners, who represent one of every three Fortune 1000 companies.”
