Joining the ranks for workplace excellence is an honor, especially when the awards reflect two key areas of your organization — industry growth and company culture. We are excited to announce the Houston Chronicle named BCH a Top Workplace for the 13th consecutive year. Additionally, our team has once again earned national recognition from the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA) as a Best Practices Agency.
Houston Chronicle Top Workplaces 2022
BCH ranked among the 2022 Top Workplaces for mid-size companies in the Houston metropolitan area. Each year, the Houston Chronicle publishes a list of the best places to work based on anonymous feedback from employee surveys. The questionnaires cover everything from company culture, to professional development and benefit offerings.
Our employees are the heart of our organization, so we are especially encouraged by the fact that they enjoy being a part of our team and our purpose. At BCH, we work hard to foster a healthy and positive atmosphere for our team members. Focusing on ways to elevate our employees’ experience helps us grow as a company and deliver the best quality of service to our clients and partners.
Big “I” Best Practices Agency 2022
The IIABA, also known as Big “I”, recognizes the highest-performing insurance agencies that demonstrate operational excellence and growth in the industry. To qualify as a Best Practices Agency, firms submit extensive documentation after the nomination is selected for review. Fewer than 300 agencies across the nation are awarded each year, and BCH is honored to be named a top contender.
BCH has ranked as a Best Practices Agency for 29 years in a row, and we will continue to go above and beyond what is expected to better serve the businesses that depend on us. We are so proud of our team members and their commitment to our clients as well as our mission.
A commitment to our clients to provide valuable services and quality insurance products through a friendly, efficient staff of professionals.
We are grateful for the opportunity to serve our clients — and for the positive impact they have had on our growth and development through the years. Leading with transparency and communicating effectively are two ways we have improved efficiency in 2022. In addition, seeking a deeper understanding of establishing meaningful relationships with clients has allowed our advisors to offer a better quality of service and meet the unique needs of each industry and organization.
BCH Company Culture
At BCH, we firmly believe our culture is defined by our people. Personal values, work ethic and willingness to learn are key traits we look for in our team members. We also encourage growth on a professional as well as a personal level, so we can bring out the best in each other. By focusing on both areas, we help improve upon the knowledge and skills we’ve cultivated as a team.
Having fun is a big part of our culture, too. We want all our team members to enjoy participating in group events, but more importantly, we want them to know they are appreciated. BCH is always looking for opportunities to celebrate personal achievements, anniversaries and birthdays. Every single team member brings something unique to the table, and we encourage them to share their successes and excitement with the BCH family.
Our Foundation is supported by strong commitments to represent quality insurance companies; to stimulate our internal growth through client referrals; to promote controlled growth through mergers, acquisitions and strategic alliances; to advocate continuing education, leadership skills, teamwork and advancement for our employees; to aggressively pursue the most effective innovations in automation to refine our service and productivity; to initiate strides for better government in the insurance industry and encourage community involvement; to continually strengthen our leadership role in the insurance industry.
Another way we make people the center of our company culture is by fostering a sense of social responsibility. The BCH team is always looking for new opportunities to get involved. We’ve seen how participating in charity events and volunteering can have a positive impact on other people’s lives — and it helps our team stay connected with the community we call home.
BCH, we are constantly evaluating ways to support a culture of excellence — whether that comes from improving our processes or our working environment. We are grateful to have such incredible team members who work so hard each day. It’s because of them that our company can continue serving clients when it matters.
