“For an insurance company, having a strong reputation is important, because it ensures customers will do business with you, policymakers and regulators will give you license to operate, and potential employees will be more willing to work for you,” said Nicky McHugh, vice president and consulting director, US, Reputation Institute. “Congratulations to everyone at CUNA Mutual Group for being recognized as one of the most reputable insurance companies; it speaks to your company’s commitment to your customers and the communities you serve.”
