Haven Life was named a great place to work in NYC



Wow. We have no words.

… Well, come to think of it, we have a few words. Quite a few of them, actually. The first two are "thank you" and "you." As you can see, the experts at Great Place to Work and Fortune Magazine named us one of the best 2020 workplaces in New York. And this is not an arbitrary thing. It is based on a survey of more than 45,000 employees throughout the region. And it turns out that we ranked No. 6 on the overall list of best small and medium-sized workplaces, with an overall rating of 98 percent from our employees. (At a typical company in the survey, that figure is only 59 percent.)

So yes, kind of a big deal.

“At Haven Life, we have built a culture that prioritizes honesty, respect, kindness and compassion. We see diversity and balance between work and life as strategic benefits and not as company symbols, says our co-founder and CEO Yaron Ben-Zvi. "I am proud that we have continued to follow these principles that make Haven Life such a special place to work, even though we have grown to almost 300 employees."

Why do we love working here so much? Let's count the way …

Working at Haven Life is Safe

Let's face it: Calculating actuarial tables and composing affordable blog posts is not exactly sailing in high seas (or working at the forefront of health care) when it comes to workplace danger . Still, a little effort goes a long way. For example, our office closed quickly after it became clear that the coronavirus was a serious threat to everyone's health, and we remain far from the rest of the year for that very reason.

Feeling safe is not just about the lack of physical danger. It's about feeling mentally and emotionally secure – as you can be yourself. We encourage it as much as possible and the results speak for themselves. "I have felt very comfortable getting 'my whole self' to work, wearing shorts, funky clothes, painting my nails or having a visible tattoo + face piercing," says Zack Shinkar, underwriter developer. "Despite warnings from non-colleagues that these decisions about my appearance would make people take me less seriously at work or even invite aggression, I have never felt less than 100% welcome by my colleagues when navigating through the working day. "

And while awards like this are nice, it's what really motivates us to make sure our customers get the best possible service and the best possible care, while getting the right life insurance for their loved ones and their peace of mind.
