The National Top Workplaces list recognizes the most progressive companies based on employee opinions about company leadership, communication, career opportunities, workplace environment, managerial skills, pay and benefits.

The survey was conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, the leading on-demand employee survey provider, in conjunction with 30 leading regional newspapers. Allianz Life participated in the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s Top Workplaces 2012 program.

Companies that set a clear direction for their future; execute well; and bring real meaning to work are the healthiest.
In addition to joining the WorkplaceDynamics “National Top 150” list, Allianz Life was recently named to FORTUNE Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list for the second straight year, making it the only Twin Cities-based company on the 2013 list.
