Online PR News – 28-September-2012 – Dallas, TX – MarketScout, an insurance distribution and underwriting company, today announced that it has been named as one of the 2012 Best Places to Work in Insurance by Business Insurance.

Best Places to Work in Insurance is a joint effort of Business Insurance and Best Companies Group, an independent research firm. The competition, which involves months of in-depth evaluation, is open to all publicly or privately held property/casualty insurers, group life/health insurers, retail agents and brokers, wholesale brokers/managing general agents, reinsurers, reinsurance brokers, benefits brokers, advisers, and claims managers with at least 25 employees in the United States and serving the commercial insurance market.

Companies were judged through a two-part survey evaluation. One aspect focused on employees' workplace experience and company culture, while the other gathered information on the employer's benefits, policies, and other practices.
