Hartville Pet Insurance Group wins NorthCoast 99 Award from ERC for First Time

Positive workplace strategy and new facilities give Akron-based company a boost

Hartville Pet Insurance Group℠ has been recognized by ERC as one of Northeast Ohio's 99 best places to work. This year's NorthCoast 99 winners will be honored at a recognition dinner Sept. 24 at Executive Caterers at Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights, Ohio, in front of more than 800 guests. This is the first time that Hartville Pet Insurance Group has received the award.

"We have worked hard to create a rewarding workplace by listening to our employees and implementing their ideas," said Amanda Piccari, Director of Human Resources, Hartville Pet Insurance Group. “With our recent move to Akron, we have upgraded our call center and overall atmosphere and morale for our 125 employees. Even our furry friends who come to work with us are happy with the new facilities.”

The NC99 award recognizes business performance, benchmarking between local organizations, recruitment tools and more. Hartville Pet Insurance's employees have attributed winning this award to a customer-focused, relaxed office environment which allows employees to celebrate and encourage one another to grow. They also believe strongly in helping others through community volunteer programs.

"Hartville Pet Insurance's employees' belief in the company mission – helping more pets get the care they need – makes for a unique office culture that you will not find anywhere else," Piccari said.

"We've been very excited to see the stories from this year's NorthCoast 99 winning organizations, and how they've created cultures for Top Performers to thrive," said Pat Perry, ERC president. "NorthCoast 99 has transformed from a workplace competition to a movement. We see it every day and are gratified that more and more local CEOs are shifting towards a great workplace strategy."
