Denver, CO – May 6, 2024 – Pinnacol Assurance, the leading provider of workers' compensation insurance in Colorado, is recognized with two prestigious Stevie® Awards as part of the 2024 American Business Awards. The organization is honored in the Company of the Year Insurance-Large and the Customer Achievement categories for its exceptional commitment to customer satisfaction, operational excellence, and altruism

Award judges from industry giants such as ADP and S&P Global noted Pinnacol’s top-performing customer and injured worker satisfaction scores. The judges also commended Pinnacol's focus on providing compassionate and responsive service, especially to injured workers and Spanish-speaking customers.

Judges were particularly impressed with Pinnacol's innovative programs and initiatives, such as the youth apprenticeship program, which demonstrated the company's commitment to social responsibility and talent development.

“Pinnacol Assurance's achievements in customer satisfaction, employee recognition, social impact, and operational excellence make it a standout company in the insurance industry,” said one judge. “These achievements reflect Pinnacol's unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction and signify its ability to adapt, innovate, and consistently deliver exceptional service even amidst evolving challenges.”
