Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America (Allianz
Life) today announced that it has been named one of America’s Top
Workplaces based on employee feedback about career development
opportunities offered to Allianz Life employees by the company. Allianz
Life was ranked #53 nationwide among 872 companies making it part of the
inaugural “National Top 150” list. The list was organized by
WorkplaceDynamics, an employee survey company, and compared companies’
survey results from companies with more than 1,000 employees that
participated in regional top workplaces programs throughout the country.
“We are honored by this recognition and thank our employees for making
Allianz Life one of the top places to work in not only the Twin Cities,
but also the entire United States,” said Allianz Life President and CEO
Walter White. “As we strive to help Americans achieve their financial
and retirement goals, it’s gratifying to know that we’re also helping
our employees fulfill their professional aspirations.”
Top Workplaces list recognizes the most progressive companies based
on employee opinions about company leadership, communication, career
opportunities, workplace environment, managerial skills, pay and
benefits. The winning companies were determined solely by feedback
gathered through a confidential employee
survey. The survey was conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, the
leading on-demand employee survey provider, in conjunction with 30
leading regional newspapers. Allianz Life participated in the Minneapolis
Star Tribune’s Top Workplaces 2012 program.
The survey uses a proprietary set of 22 questions to rank companies. The
survey data showed that employees most want to work at companies with
high levels of organizational
health. Companies that set a clear direction for their future;
execute well; and bring real meaning to work are the healthiest.
In addition to joining the WorkplaceDynamics “National Top 150” list,
Allianz Life was recently named to FORTUNE Magazine’s “100
Best Companies to Work For” list for the second straight year,
making it the only Twin Cities-based company on the 2013 list. Details
