Independent insurance brokerage Assurance Agency tries to keep employees on their toes, in anticipation of the next fun, crazy thing they’ll do. Employees receive a random birthday gift each year, like CDs of birthday music or mini-robot USBs, and the company invites everyone to ice-cream socials (where treats can come with a crisp $50 bill). Employees are actively encouraged to contribute their insights by Assurance’s two light bulb mascots – named Ivan and Sharon Idea. Employees can join committees for everything ranging from charity work to wellness and office space initiatives, and anyone can receive $5 for each suggestion they submit to the company, with no limit on how many can be submitted. Assurance takes care to support its employees as people, with 35 days paid time off after one year of employment, a $10,000 adoption benefit and up to $5,250 in tuition reimbursement.
