Alumni Owned Business Named Healthiest 100 Workplaces

Just recently, Conner Insurance received the Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America award where they were ranked number 78. Conner Insurance is “professionally and personally passionate about [wellness] because it drives lower health costs, increased efficiencies, and increased productivity from [their] employees.” They have striven to make wellness an integral part of their workplace, and their efforts have been rewarded. Active in helping to develop the wellness culture, lower costs, and create a vibrant environment at Conner Insurance, is Spire Wellness.
For Conner Insurance, this award displays the idea of “practicing what they preach” as a health insurance consulting business. Currently they are the 13th largest insurance brokerage firm in Indianapolis, but they look to grow and improve that rank in years to come.
Conner Insurance was established in 1949 by Clay Conner. It grew to include Group Health, Property & Casualty, Personal Lines and Retirement Plans. The company was bought by his sons in 1973, and it grew even more. Currently, the company is led by the third generation of family members. One of whom, the CEO, is Benjamin H. Conner, who graduated from Indiana Wesleyan in 2006 with a degree in Management. He says, “My experience at IWU taught me the value of relationships. IWU taught me that the business community is an opportunity to show I am a Christ follower in how I conduct myself…The professors in the business program (especially Dr. Harriet Rojas) took extra time to invest in my life in the classroom and show me that business matters to God.”
