DENVER — Nov. 20, 2023 — Pinnacol Assurance, Colorado’s largest workers’ compensation insurance carrier, announces two of its teams are recipients of top-ranked global OnCon Icon Awards. Pinnacol’s executive team earned a top 50 ranking, and the corporate counsel placed in the top 10. The voter-driven awards recognize teams that demonstrate exceptional and innovative leadership and make strong contributions to their organization and community. Winners represent the top teams in the world. 

The award recognizes each team’s contributions to protecting Colorado workers, providing personalized compassionate care for those injured on the job, and meeting the needs of a post-pandemic economy and workforce. The executive team sets the tone for the organization, and each team uniquely fosters a culture of caring and ethics that supports the health and longevity of the workforce and the community beyond its statutory responsibilities.

Mark Goodman, Pinnacol’s board chair, expressed his pride and his support for the executive and corporate counsel teams, saying, “These talented individuals and teams are committed to Colorado. They have consistently demonstrated a commitment to innovation, excellence and, above all, to serving our customers and community when they need it most.”

Pinnacol is the top-performing workers’ compensation carrier in the state, this year achieving record-breaking injured worker satisfaction scores for both English- and Spanish-speaking workers that exceed the industry average of top private carriers. Pinnacol is recognized as a top employer in Colorado and one of the state’s 50 most community-minded companies. Last year, Pinnacol invested over $1.1 million in grants, donations and scholarships and nearly 1,000 hours volunteering in the communities where we live and work. Pinnacol also leads an award-winning diversity, equity and inclusion strategy and boasts one of the largest U.S. Department of Labor-registered youth apprenticeship programs in the state, supporting the training of future workforce leaders.
