Best Place to Work 2017!
The Milwaukee Business Journal held a luncheon on August 18, celebrating the nominees and recipients of their "Best Places To Work" awards. The event was held in the Chrome Room at the Harley Davidson Museum in Downtown Milwaukee. Festivities began at 11:30 with networking and lunch was served promptly at Noon with a Welcome from the Publisher. Attendees enjoyed a fresh green salad with an entree of Pesto Marinated Chicken Breast, roasted vegetables, garlic mashed potatoes and caper beurre blanc sauce. The menu was topped with a delicious german chocolate layer cake.
While the menu was top rate, that's not really why we all gathered together. We, along with nearly 200 others were there to celebrate being named one of the Best Places To Work. This year, The Starr Group was ranked highest in the Micro-small category (10-24 employees) with an overall score of 95.97.
2017 marks the third year in a row that The Starr Group has applied for this award. In 2015, the agency placed 5th in our category with a score of 95.71. Last year, we placed First in our category and second overall with a score of 96.86. This year, the agency tied for the top spot overall with Titus Talent Strategies. (Kudos to them for topping the Small category!)
Returning to the table after accepting the award on behalf of The Starr Group, Mary Starr, Exec VP thanked those staff members in attendence and told them, "This award is because of all of you!" She echoed the sentiments in an email to the entire staff upon returning to the office that afternoon.

THE NEW STARR GROUP APP IS HERE!
Think about this: You're shopping for a new car and at the end of the day, you find something you like. You need access to your insurance information and the insurance office closed 5 minutes ago. What do you do? Even if you're not shopping online, someone else is, and if you wait too long, the vehicle you want may be purchased by another person. What DO you do when you need immediate service from your insurance agency?
Well, the new Starr Group App is here! The long-awaited online Do-It-Yourself Customer Service Tool was launched July 18. Now customers of The Starr Group can obtain the insurance information they need -- when they need it! The Starr Group has been working to provide a secure app for our clients, one that works easily and seamlessly with our system software. This additional connection to our customers is both convenient and safe.
