DURHAM, N.C., June 2019 – Gallagher, one of the largest employee health benefits consulting firms in the U.S., was recently named as one of the 2019 Best Employers in North Carolina. The list of the Best Employers in North Carolina was created by Business North Carolina and Best Companies Group.

This statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in North Carolina, benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses. Recognized as one of the 25 best employers in the large employer size category, Gallagher was honored alongside other winners at an Awards Gala at the Durham Convention Center in May. Employee representatives from Gallagher's Charlotte and Durham, NC offices were present to accept the award on behalf of Gallagher for creating a workplace of excellence.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the 2019 Best Employers in North Carolina. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores, managed by Best Companies Group, determined the top companies and the final ranking.

Gallagher offers various programs and benefits, including summer hours, volunteer time off, chair massages, fruit and salad bars, an annual pancake breakfast, as well as events held away from the office, such as an afternoon at the movies, an annual team building event, all in support the company’s values.
