AAG Selected in Top 50 for Two Categories at Fourth Annual Best Places to Work Awards
IRVINE, Calif. (Dec. 29, 2020) – American Advisors Group (AAG), has been named a Best Company for Women and a Best Company for Diversity in the large company category by Comparably, a leading workplace culture and compensation monitoring organization. Comparably’s annual Best Places to Work Awards rely solely on the input of employees who provide company ratings. The Awards were determined by Comparably’s proprietary algorithm as well as the quality and quantity of each company’s overall ratings.
“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by our employees and by Comparably for these awards,” said AAG Chief People Officer, Rebecca Pacillas. “We take enormous pride in being a company that values diversity, and these accolades represent the efforts that we have put forth to give all of our employees an equal opportunity to succeed.”
Rankings for each company award were based on a combination of questions in 20 core culture metrics, from compensation and leadership to work environment and professional development opportunities (in yes/no, true/false, 1-10 scale, and multiple-choice formats). Answers provided a comprehensive and accurate look at what it’s really like to work at each company for a person of color or a woman in the workplace.
To qualify for the Comparably Best Places to Work Awards, large companies with more than 500 employees, such as AAG, were required to have a minimum of 75 employee participants from their company. Final data from the awards was compiled from 10 million ratings spanning 60,000 North American companies.
