We continually strive to develop a diverse workforce, involve and empower all our employees, and encourage collaboration throughout the organization. Surveys conducted by outside organizations and our own annual employee engagement survey—a continuous loop of engagement, feedback, action, and change—indicate that we’re achieving the desired results in these critical metrics. We offer a wide array of professional development opportunities and wellness programs and engage our workforce on many levels.
At Verisk, we have a longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion in our workplace and marketplace. It’s fundamental to our culture and our values.
Employee engagement is a priority at Verisk. Our employee engagement surveys are the centerpiece of a continuous loop of engagement, feedback, action, and change.
For the eighth consecutive year, Verisk received certification from Great Place to Work® for outstanding workplace culture in the US; fourth-time certification in the UK, Spain, and India, and second-time certification in Poland. Employees feel Verisk meets the benchmark for innovation, inclusivity, company values, and leaders’ effectiveness.
