Hotchkiss Insurance Wins Gold: Best Agency to Work For – South Central

Hotchkiss Insurance is proud to receive the Insurance Journal’s gold award as the South Central region’s best place to work -- for the second time. This award recognizes an agency for company culture, employee satisfaction and experience. We’re proud to receive this honor for a second time, and find it especially meaningful that this award is based on anonymous feedback from the people who are at the heart of what we do – our employees!

Mike Hotchkiss, CEO, said employees often communicate that “they appreciate the fun and engaging environment, as well as the chance to accelerate their careers here. We’re very committed to supporting and growing our employees inside and outside of the walls of Hotchkiss Insurance, and we’re honored to receive recognition of that focus.”

He added that the agency over the past five years has grown significantly and continues to expand its offerings for clients. “Our firm only grows when our people grow. Growth and accomplishment feel good. I believe these are some of the reasons our team members enjoy working at Hotchkiss Insurance,” he said.

As one of the few larger, independent, private insurance agencies in Texas, Hotchkiss Insurance has benefited from the tremendous opportunity that exists in the state, he said. “We have worked hard to create a values-based culture at Hotchkiss that gives team members room for initiative and growth. When these aspects come together and we provide valuable impact to our clients, work becomes a great place to be.”

Several employees expressed their appreciation for the company’s emphasis on fundamental behaviors that contribute to the success of the agency, staff and clients.

“We spend significant time as a firm every week focusing on fundamental behaviors. We’ve created 35 different behaviors, and we call these the Hotchkiss Way. When each team member at our firm is focusing on the right values and behaviors, our co-workers, trade-partners and clients win,” Hotchkiss said.

Other employees highlighted Hotchkiss Helps, a conduit through which the company and its employees are able to contribute to their communities and support those charities that are important to them.

“We’re a purpose-driven organization dedicated to impacting our clients and the world around us. We know what we do, how we do it, and most importantly why we do it.”
