Employee Networks

At Everest, providing a healthy and productive environment for our employees to grow professionally is one of the core values that drives our business. Attracting and maintaining a diverse, talented workforce is an essential part of enacting that value. We are committed to inclusive hiring practices, strong talent development and an engaging and motivated culture in the workplace.

Supporting Our Employees

Everest ranks among the World’s Best Employers and 2019 Best Places to Work in Insurance. In September, Everest Insurance® was named one of Business Insurance’s 2019 Best Places to work in Insurance, followed by Forbes Media announcing in October that Everest Re Group, Ltd. was recognized as one of the World’s Best Employers 2019, honors which we are very proud to receive.

We recognize that the wellbeing of our employees is critical to the success and sustainability of our Company. As the driving force behind our Company’s success, our employees deserve the Company’s dedication to their physical, mental and financial health. In addition to competitive wages, we provide our employees with a variety of benefits and many special programs to promote their health and wellbeing both in and out of the workplace.

Diversity

Without diversity of perspectives and experiences, it would be impossible for our Company to grow. We are dedicated to maintaining an inclusive work environment which welcomes all employees, regardless of age, gender identity, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or disability. We are proud to have a diverse community, extending from our Board of Directors through to our employees.
