ORLAND PARK, IL – November 8, 2023 – The Horton Group, one of the largest privately-held insurance brokers in the United States, has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2023 honor by The Chicago Tribune’s Top Workplaces.

The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution and connection.

“Our goal is to make this company a place where our new hires wish to stay for a long time, so it is an honor to be professionally recognized for this achievement,” said Dan Horton, CEO of The Horton Group. “Our ranking on this list is the direct result of a team effort, and we couldn’t have done it without the help of many employees who know what it means to care unconventionally.”

The companies were separated in categories based on size. Horton was one of 66 companies to be placed in the mid-sized employer category, which ranges from 250-999 local employees.

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”
