Sammons Financial Group Honored as One of Glassdoor’S 2019 Best Places to Work 

West Des Moines, IA | December 6, 2018

Sammons® Financial Group, Inc. (SFG) has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2019. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its 11th year, is based solely on the input of employees who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments, and companies on Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites.

“At SFG, we strive to create a healthy, high performing culture that demonstrates value and appreciation towards each and every one of our employees, said Anne Cooper, senior vice president and chief human resources officer for SFG. “We conduct an annual employee engagement survey and the results consistently indicate that SFG is a workplace where employees feel engaged, are satisfied in their roles and are committed to our organization. Being named one of Glassdoor’s 2019 Best Places to Work reiterates our high employee engagement ratings,” added Cooper.

On Glassdoor’s website, current and former employees voluntarily and anonymously share insights and opinions about their work environments by providing a company review, designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what a specific job may be like at a particular company. When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, senior management, and work/life balance. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.

SFG has an overall rating of 4.8 on Glassdoor, with 96% indicating that they would recommend the company to a friend. One anonymous employee posted a review that stated, “SFG is unparalleled as a company in regards to the benefits it provides and how they treat their employees. Employees are viewed as valuable assets and compensated thusly in both salary, health benefits, and namely in the retirement benefits that are offered. People are continually challenged to grow and develop their skills with plenty of opportunities for promotion and advancement within the company,”

Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work were determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between October 23, 2017 and October 21, 2018. To be considered for the large category, a company must have had at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 75 ratings across each of the eight workplace attributes from U.S.-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled using Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, led by its Economic Research Team, and takes into account quantity, quality, and consistency of reviews.
