Florida Trend recognizes ASI as one of the state’s best places to work

St. Petersburg, Fla. (Aug. 8, 2012) – Florida Trend magazine has awarded American Strategic Insurance Corp. (ASI) the distinction of being one of "Florida’s Best Companies to Work For."

ASI was part of the large company (250 or more employees) category and achieved second place in the statewide ranking. Florida Trend has named ASI a top company for the last four years. The latest "Best Companies to Work For" list was published in the magazine’s August 2012 edition.

"Innovation is at the heart of ASI, where boundaries are practically nonexistent," said Jennifer Kowalski, an 11-year employee. "My colleagues and I talk about how our job allows us to do what we love – to work with people from around the country, see different perspectives and learn about different markets. ASI offers vast opportunities for career growth, fantastic benefits and a flexible working environment."

A priority for ASI is to make sure it sustains a great workplace environment by recognizing that it’s not about doing "more," but doing things differently. Decision-making processes always include employee input and ASI leaders make sure they "close the loop" on outcomes so there is no uncertainty. Most importantly, decision-making is transparent in a way that builds trust among the team.
