A R T I C L E:

Edgewood Partners Insurance Center (EPIC), a retail property, casualty and employee benefits insurance brokerage, has again been recognized as a "Best Place to Work in the Bay Area." For 2013, San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal presented the award jointly.

"It is always gratifying to have our people validate our beliefs and practices in this way," said Mary Smith, director of human resources. "At EPIC, we believe an excellent work environment is built on respect, innovation, personal accountability, celebration and a healthy work/life balance. It is wonderful each year to see that our EPIC team members continue to agree and appreciate our efforts."

EPIC has received this recognition from their employees for six consecutive years. Out of the 150 companies honored, EPIC was one of only three insurance brokers.

The Best Places to Work survey judges the morale and culture of the workplace, including whether it fosters creativity and makes the workday enjoyable. The survey includes a number of criteria, which an independent ranking agency used to compile the official rankings. On April 26, results were announced in the San Francisco Business Times.

A strong emphasis on both employee and client satisfaction has secured EPIC's ongoing recognition as one of the "Best Places to Work in the Bay Area." EPIC offers its employees a generous paid-time-off package, comprehensive health and welfare plans, a 401(k) match, an employee wellness program, and an annual EPIC Appreciation Day.

Additionally, EPIC encourages and supports its employees to participate in the activities of charitable organization such as the American Heart Association, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Alzheimer's Association and many other non-profit and community-service organizations, both local and national.
