Consolidated Communications named a U.S. Best-in-Class Employer by Gallagher

For the third consecutive year, Gallagher’s Best-in-Class Benchmarking Analysis recognizes Consolidated’s excellence in optimizing employee and organizational wellbeing

Consolidated Communications (NASDAQ: CNSL), a leading broadband and business communications provider, has received the coveted designation of Gallagher’s Best-in-Class Employer for the third straight year.

Gallagher’s annual survey identifies organizations that excel in implementing successful strategies for managing people and programs. Consolidated was recognized for its comprehensive framework for strategically investing in benefits, compensation and employee communication to support the health, financial security and career growth of employees at a sustainable cost structure.

“We’re proud to again be named a Best-in-Class Employer by Gallagher,” said Conrad Hunter, senior vice president of Human Resources for Consolidated. “Our employees are our most important advantage, and we continually work to improve upon current best practices to differentiate ourselves as a great place to work. Developing and being focused on sustaining an engaged workplace culture is crucial in today’s competitive employment environment.”

The designation follows Consolidated’s participation in Gallagher’s 2023 U.S. Benefits Strategy & Benchmarking Survey. Survey participants are assigned points based on their relative performance in:

  • Plan horizons for benefits and compensation strategies
  • Extent of the well-being strategy
  • Turnover rate for full-time equivalents (FTEs)
  • Completion of a workforce engagement survey
  • Use of an HR technology strategy and its level of sophistication
  • Difference in healthcare costs over the prior year
  • Use of a communication strategy

“Consolidated Communications understands that high employee expectations haven’t budged in the changing labor market and have regularly examined their formula to attract and retain talent,” said William F. Ziebell, CEO of Gallagher's Benefits & HR Consulting Division. “In doing so, Consolidated utilizes data, workforce feedback tools and clearly defined policies to provide competitive benefits and experiences that their employees value.”
