(St. Louis, Mo., Nov. 16, 2023) Powers Insurance & Risk Management, one of the largest family owned and operated independent insurance agencies in the bi-state region, was recently named for its third consecutive year as one of the Midwest’s “2023 Best Agency to Work For” by Insurance Journal.

More than 3,000 nominations were submitted for this prestigious award, which anonymously surveyed employees about their workplaces. The winning agencies scored high for overall employee benefits including competitive salaries, training, and education. Employees attributed happiness in the workplace due to wellness programs for working conditions such as work-from-home options, flextime, and other alternative schedules that allowed employees to embrace work-life balance.

“Our family business prides itself on a supportive workplace environment where employees have input in decision-making processes and procedures,” said Powers Insurance & Risk Management’s CEO JD Powers. “Our company’s goal is to make our team feel valued, heard, and respected. We are extremely proud of this recognition which is made possible because of our employee’s dedication to the company’s mission and values.”
