The Great Place to Work Institute and the Society for Human Resources Management has named Acuity insurance company the best mid-size company to work for in the country. Acuity is based in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and employs about 530 in that city and another 190 elsewhere. The company was known as Heritage Mutual Insurance until 1999, when the current management took over. Since then employee turnover has fallen to 2 percent from 28 percent. 

Among the company's employee benefits are: a nursing room for new mothers, flex time, a fitness center, openness to employee suggestions, no health insurance cost increases in the last four years, and 401(k) plan contributions of 8 percent of payroll regardless of whether the employee contributes. The Great Place to Work Institute awards are based on surveys of employees of nominated companies. Twenty-five mid-size and 25 small companies were honored from the 155 companies surveyed.

Acuity received the PIA National Company Award of Excellence in 2001.
