Warwick, R.I. – Beacon Mutual Insurance Company (“Beacon”) is thrilled to announce that it has been named the First Place Winner of the Best Places to Work in Rhode Island by Providence Business News (PBN) in the Large Company category for the second consecutive year. This esteemed recognition reflects Beacon's continuous dedication to fostering an outstanding work environment for its employees.

Brian Spero, President and CEO of Beacon Mutual, shared his gratitude and pride in this achievement, "Winning this award for the second year in a row is a remarkable honor. It speaks volumes about the commitment and passion of our entire team. At Beacon, we believe in creating a workplace where our employees feel valued, supported, and inspired to do their best work. This recognition motivates us to continue enhancing our culture and ensuring that Beacon remains a place where everyone can thrive."

The PBN's Best Places to Work Awards program, in partnership with Best Companies Group, aims to recognize the finest employers in Rhode Island. The initiative underscores the significant impact of exceptional workplaces on the local economy, workforce, and business landscape.

Among the numerous companies that participated in the 2024 Best Places to Work in Rhode Island survey, Beacon stood out in the large employer category. The selection process involved a thorough evaluation of each nominated company's policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics, as well as an employee survey to assess the employee experience. The final rankings were based on combined scores from these evaluations, highlighting the top employers in the state.

Marie Pelletier, Beacon’s Senior Human Resources Business Partner, emphasized the company’s commitment to employee retention and satisfaction, "People who work at Beacon tend to stay for the long run."

Anonymous employee reviews from Beacon’s Glassdoor and Indeed profiles provide insight into what makes Beacon a standout employer:

  • "Beacon checks all the boxes. There is a strong culture with a ‘do the right thing’ mentality. Management cares about employees and I believe I have a stake in the outcomes and direction of the company. Additionally, it is a hybrid, flexible work environment with strong benefits and pay. There is a real sense of community involvement, as well with a goal of helping those in the community where we work and live."
  • "This organization cares about its employees and is always looking out for our best interest. They care about the community, and they care about people in general. This organization always cares about the employers and employees it insures. I have never myself experienced an insurance company which cares more than this organization."

Beacon’s culture of engagement and employee satisfaction is further reflected in their involvement in community initiatives and creating a supportive work environment. "If you have employees who work in a great place, it’s going to be noticeable to people outside of the company who deal with them," added Spero. "We are always complimented by the people we deal with on how happy our employees are with what they do and how it makes a real difference in how they do their job."

Winning the Best Places to Work for Large Employers award for a second year in a row is a significant achievement for Beacon, reaffirming its commitment to creating an exceptional workplace. Beacon extends its congratulations to all the companies honored as part of the 2024 Best Places to Work in Rhode Island. Together, these employers are shaping a vibrant business community that benefits employees, organizations, and the entire state of Rhode Island.
