Gallagher Baton Rouge provides insurance, risk management and consulting services to businesses, communities, and people across the globe, focusing on client-centric, expertise-driven solutions. This focus on excellence—characterized by innovation and creativity—is the driver behind every insurance program. The company has been recognized for nine years by the Ethisphere Institute as one of the world’s most ethical companies and is the only insurance firm to receive this designation.

As a publicly traded company, Gallagher incorporates its overall culture with each office’s local culture, and understands the importance of employee morale. The company hosts several annual events, including a company crawfish boil and a Thanksgiving potluck as a way to encourage employees to get to know each other on a personal and professional level. An annual conference honors top performers and those who have gone above and beyond company expectations, and an Employee of the Quarter program recognizes those who have performed well throughout the year.

Thanks to having the right technology in place, Gallagher hasn’t missed a beat during the COVID-19 crisis and has adjusted well to the virtual world by growing its online presence and enabling employees to work remotely.

Gallagher Baton Rouge has learned that the insurance industry can excel in extremely challenging times when it is founded on a progressive business model. Most important, employees are proud that they have been able to respond to their clients’ needs without disruption.
