February 15, 2018

Columbus, Ohio - For the fourth consecutive year, Fortune has named Nationwide to its “100 Best Companies to Work For” list. The annual survey is the national benchmark for rating companies that deliver high performance while creating an outstanding and supportive corporate culture. 

“Nationwide is proud to be recognized by Fortune as one of the Top 100 Best Companies to Work For list for the fourth consecutive year,” said Steve Rasmussen, CEO for Nationwide. “This honor is a result of our strong values and talented associates who are dedicated to serving our members and partners.”

“The 2018 100 Best are true leaders,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “In the face of competition, change and financial constraints, they consistently prioritize building the trust, pride and camaraderie that fuels business performance. And they’re doing it at scale for everyone, regardless of who they are or what they do for the organization.”

Nationwide promotes a culture that provides meaningful and engaging career-growth opportunities for over 33,000 associates across the country. The company continuously evolves its innovative talent development strategies, as well as comprehensive health, well-being and retirement benefits and resources to meet their individual needs.

The recognition by Fortune follows other local and national honors Nationwide has received in the past year recognizing the company’s dedication to its members, its commitment to diversity, the breadth of career opportunities and the numerous programs and resources available to associates. This includes being recognized by Gallup for five consecutive years with the Great Workplace Award, receiving a 100 percent rating on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index for 13 consecutive years and many other top workplace awards.
