Hays Headquarters Named Largest Insurance Brokerage in Minneapolis

Hays Companies is pleased to announce that our Minneapolis office, which is also the location of our corporate Headquarters, was named the largest insurance brokerage in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area (also known as the Twin Cities) by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.

The publication, which is amongst the most prestigious business news outlets in the state of Minnesota, surveyed offices located within the 24-county metro area. For businesses that are headquartered in the Twin Cities, such as ours, results were based on companywide revenue for all operations as well as the number of employees.

We’re especially honored by this recognition as it not only reflective of our growth as an organization, but also the continued support of the community in which we were founded.

The art of risk assessment requires more than just knowledge — it also requires creativity and imagination to successfully anticipate, recognize, assess and treat potential risks.

Organizations that harness these skills can develop more effective risk management strategies to bolster their strategic goals, says Bruce Lyon, Hays Companies Director of Risk Control, in the cover story for the March 2016 edition of Professional Safety magazine.

The article, entitled, “The Art of Assessing Risk: Selecting, Modifying & Combining Methods to Assess Operational Risks,” written by Lyon and co-author, University of Central Missouri professor Georgi Popov, Ph.D., asserts that highly successful organizations see the value of incorporating creativity to develop effective risk assessment strategies within their risk management plans and operational risk management systems.

The article dives deeper by presenting the sequence of assessing risk and the tools and methodologies used in the Risk Identification, Risk Analytics and Risk Evaluation process. To read more about the financial and non-financial benefits of risk reduction measures, click here.
