Amica finishes first in Best Places to Work competition


LINCOLN, RI – Amica Insurance took first place in its division at the 2013 Best Places to Work in Rhode Island event, sponsored by Providence Business News and Best Companies Group. The program, which was held on Thursday night at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Warwick, honored 50 companies, large and small, across the state.

Amica earned top honors in the Enterprise Employer category (500 or more employees in Rhode Island). Accepting the award on behalf of Amica were Robert DiMuccio, chairman, president and CEO; Jill Andy, senior vice president in human resources; and Samuel Palmisano, senior assistant vice president in human resources.

“We’re honored to receive this public recognition as a great place to work,” DiMuccio said. “We believe our employees are the key to our success because they work directly with our customers. That’s why we focus on providing our employees with excellent programs and benefits.”

Companies across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Rhode Island. The first part evaluated each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Rhode Island and also analyzed the data and used its expertise to determine the final rankings.
