MJ Named ‘Best Places to Work in Insurance’

MJ Insurance, a leading property-casualty and employee benefits agency, was recently named one of the ‘Best Places to Work in Insurance’ by Business Insurance and Best Companies Group.

The annual program was created six years ago to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in insurance. To be considered for the award companies had to fulfill specific eligibility requirements including having a facility in the United States, have at least 25 employees, and be in a business for a minimum of one year.

Companies from across the country entered the two-part process to be considered. Companies are evaluated on their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. Employees are also encouraged to take a survey rating their employee experience with the company.

MJ Insurance has also been named one of the “Best Places to Work” in Indiana by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce for six consecutive years. MJ ranked No. 14 in the chamber’s medium-sized companies’ category.

“We are honored to be named a ‘Best Place to Work’ by multiple organizations,” said MJ Insurance CEO Michael H. Bill. “We are proud to have hardworking and dedicated employees in both our Indiana and Arizona offices.”

MJ Insurance, with offices in Indiana and Arizona, is a property-casualty and employee benefit agency that, since 1964, has grown from a two-person start-up to an agency with more than 125 employees. In 2014, MJ celebrates its 50th ‘golden’ anniversary.

MJ Insurance specializes in a diverse selection of unique service lines including construction, energy, transportation, real estate, manufacturing, sororities and mining. MJ also offers complete employee benefit programs including major medical, group disability, group life and onsite employer clinics. MJ Insurance currently has clients in 16 countries and in every U.S. state.

MJ Insurance, a leading property-casualty and employee benefits agency, has launched a private health care marketplace for businesses to give employers an unprecedented range of administrative flexibility and employee benefit options.

According to Accenture Research, nearly 20 percent of employees nationwide are expected to get their health insurance through a private exchange. Aetna, Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield Arizona and United Healthcare have partnered with the MJ Private Exchange along with a host of ancillary carriers.

With MJ’s private exchange, employers maintain a competitive advantage by offering best-in-industry benefits, while removing the heavy lifting of benefits administration. The exchange is an ideal solution for middle-market employers and employees alike. Key advantages of the exchange include:

· A prepackaged set of medical and ancillary benefits for employers and their employees
· Support for Affordable Care Act record-keeping responsibilities

· Flexible decision support tools that make employee choice easier

Bill, CEO of MJ Insurance. “The MJ Private Exchange is truly a simple solution for employers which incorporates a cost control mechanism that gives them more control. It is a win-win for both employers and employees.”

Employers and employees will enjoy multiple options including flexible plans for specific needs, traditional co-pay plans, health savings accounts (HSAs), higher deductible and lower cost plans.

MJ Insurance reports record revenue

MJ Insurance, one of the nation’s largest privately-held insurance agencies, has reported double digit year-over-year growth with an 11 percent increase across all business lines. The agency also reported record all-time high revenues of $25 million.

MJ’s fiscal year runs from September to September and for fiscal 2013, MJ saw solid growth in both employee benefits and in property and casualty revenues. Even as the economy has struggled, MJ has recorded strong revenue gains over the past five years.

Michael H. Bill, CEO of MJ Insurance, attributes the growth and record revenue to continued investment through the economic downturn in both employees and value-added services for clients.

“Our approach is to align our efforts with clients that emphasize value and this has proven beneficial as the economy has improved,” said Bill. “Challenges brought forth with health care reform have also allowed us to help guide businesses through this historic change.”
