(“Brown & Brown”) and our team of companies have been Certified™ by Great Place To Work® for the fifth year in a row, in addition to being included on the 2023 Fortune Best Workplaces for Women™ List.
“Our unique culture prioritizes our teammates, customers and communities,” says Brown. “We put the health and well-being of our team and their families first and are committed to maintaining a workplace environment that embraces and celebrates the diverse and unique talents of each member of our team. It’s incredibly special to know that the feedback provided directly from our teammates about their workplace experience led to Brown & Brown once again being Great Place To Work Certified™.” He adds, “We are also very proud to be recognized as a Best Workplace for Women—that honor is a testament to our commitment to a culture of inclusivity and belonging and providing opportunities for success for all teammates in all aspects of their lives.”
Turpin shares, “These incredible achievements would not be possible without the engagement and dedication of our more than 15,000 talented teammates. We believe that the teammate experience is a top priority every day, and our shared efforts to nurture a positive and engaging office culture are a point of pride for our team. Specialized programs designed to support and encourage women on our team, like The Power of She teammate resource group and our annual Women in Sales summit, create space for women to find and offer mentorship, leadership and development. This collective recognition underscores what makes Brown & Brown special—our commitment to harnessing The Power of WE and celebrating the remarkable achievements of our teammates.”
