Verisk Analytics Named a Best Employer by Forbes
Magazine for 2016
JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Verisk Analytics, a leading data analytics provider,
announced today its inclusion on the Forbes America's Best Employers 2016 list.
In 2015, Verisk was included on the Forbes World's Most Innovative Companies
list. Verisk is one of only 15 out of 500 companies to appear on both lists.
Forbes chose the top 500 employers based on the results of an independent survey
conducted among 30,000 American employees working at large companies and
institutions (headcount of 5,000 or more). Employees were contacted anonymously
online without the involvement of their employer. Respondents represented the
U.S. workforce by gender, age, region, education, and ethnicity.
"Employees are in the best position to say which companies and organizations are
offering the strongest opportunities," according to Forbes. "Working with online
statistics provider Statista, we asked more than 30,000 U.S. workers employed by
companies with more than 5,000 staff members to determine, on a scale of zero to
10, how likely they were to recommend their employer to someone else."
"We're honored to be recognized by Forbes for our commitment to our employees,"
said Scott Stephenson, president and chief executive officer of Verisk
Analytics. "Acknowledgment as a 'best employer' is a testament to the Verisk
team around the world. We remain focused on fulfilling our vision to be the
world's most effective and responsible data analytics company in pursuit of our
customers' most strategic opportunities."
