Company: Endurance Warranty Services
Category: Employer of the Year - Consumer Services
In 2019, Endurance launched a national television campaign featuring professional race car driver Jarett Andretti and the No. 18 McLaren. Jarett educated vehicle owners on protection options to cover sudden auto repairs - - including advantages of the Endurance Elite Membership. The membership comes with 24/7 roadside assistance, tire repair, and replacement, and $250 to spend with our program partners. Andretti sparked major interest during the season after claiming first place at Watkins Glen International and continues to gain momentum in the Sprint Series.
After seeing the growing popularity of Jarett, Endurance and Andretti collaborated on offering a company- wide competition during the fall. Employees of various departments had a chance to win an all- expense- paid trip to see Jarett race the No. 18 Endurance McLaren live in Elkhart, Wisconsin. Five winners received an Endurance and Andretti Autosport branded t- shirt and the opportunity to hang out with Jarett for half an hour, post- race.
To complement our strong workforce, Endurance ensures our health and life insurance benefits drive past the industry- standard. Maternity leave paid time off for vacation, holidays, personal and sick days are all included to ensure employees are taken of in- and- out of the office. The compensation packages offered at Endurance are also some of the most competitive in Downtown Chicago, St. Louis, and Northbrook, IL.
As an extension of empowering confidence for the road ahead, incentives are regularly put in place to motivate employees. Visa gift cards are rewarded to those who go above and beyond their job responsibilities on a monthly basis. Employees also have the chance to win additional prizes like wireless headsets or tickets to experiences.
Sales Managers regularly run competitions - - in 2019, the Top seller in the Sales department received an all- expensed flight and hotel reservation to any desired location.
When the Sales staff works on weekends or late during the workweek, they are regularly provided home- cooked meals to thank our employees for their hard work. Meals like chili and pulled pork are some examples, as well as regular BBQs for team bonding. Other departments also engage in team- building events like Escape Rooms and local Happy Hours around the office.
At Endurance’s annual Holiday Party, the employees that exemplify “empowering confidence for the road ahead” are recognized department- wide. All recipients of awards are recognized in front of the company and gifted a $100 pre- paid gift card to use anywhere.
For the fifth consecutive year, Endurance placed No. 1474 on the Inc. 5000 2019 list of fastest- growing companies. The companies on this list saw an average growth of 454% and a median rate of 157%. This list takes an in- depth look at the nation's fastest- growing private companies like Microsoft, Dell, Domino's, Pandora, and LinkedIn. The efforts made to empower our employees have directly translated into the growth, and success of our company.
