Coterie Insurance Named in Business Insurance’s Annual Best Places to Work in Insurance

CINCINNATI– Sept. 1, 2021 – Coterie Insurance today announced it has been named in Business Insurance’s annual Best Places to Work in Insurance program, which recognizes employers for their outstanding performance in establishing workplaces where employees can thrive, enjoy their work, and help companies grow.

Coterie Insurance is transforming the small business insurance space by making it easier and faster than ever to quote and issue small business insurance policies. The company has grown significantly in the past year and is laser-focused on hiring every new team member based on its core values of integrity, intelligence, passion, and humility.

“We’re honored to be recognized as an employer of choice from Business Insurance,” said David McFarland, CEO of Coterie Insurance. “We operate at the leading edge of hard work and passion, and our talented people and vibrant culture make this a standout environment dedicated to the success of each member of our team.”

Coterie Insurance is a 100% remote company with team members located across the four time zones of the continental U.S. Since 2018, the company has focused on creating a culture where team members are supported fully not only in their roles but also in their careers. The company’s formalized mentoring program, Core Coaching, encourages openness by providing every team member an opportunity to set and go after their personal and career goals, while also being able to raise concerns, ideas, and input into the company’s direction.

“We’ve built a culture focused on taking care of our people because we believe people who feel included, heard, empowered, and nurtured, generate better ideas and take more ownership,” added Rafael Roa, Director of Human Resources at Coterie Insurance. “It’s this sense of ownership that binds our community together in celebration and support.”

The company is dedicated to preserving its unique culture and part of that is through Friday Wins. Every Friday, the entire company meets virtually to share accomplishments and positive feedback in an open forum.
