(Minneapolis, Minn.) Western National Insurance Group (WNIG) of Edina, Minn., today announced that it has been named one of the Top 200 Workplaces in Minnesota based on an employee survey project from the Star Tribune. Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health, and satisfaction.

Being recognized as a Top Workplace fills us with pride and serves as a powerful affirmation of our commitment to being an employer of choice,” said Rick Long, President and CEO of Western National Insurance Group. “We are deeply grateful to our dedicated employees for generously sharing their valuable perspectives and insights.
