As an organization rooted in service and excellence, and with a goal of remaining an employer of choice, the City of Boerne is proud to announce it has been named a Best-In-Class Employer in Gallagher’s 2022 U.S. Benefits Strategy and Benchmarking Survey.

Gallagher identified the City as an organization that excels in optimizing employee and organizational wellbeing. The City was recognized for strategic investments in benefits, compensation, and employee communication to support the health, financial security, and career growth of its employees at a sustainable cost structure.

“The Best-in-Class Employer award is a reflection of the commitment from City Council to invest in our employees as they work diligently each day to serve our residents,” City Manager Ben Thatcher said. “It is because of our talented and dedicated employees that the City of Boerne will remain an employer of choice in our region.”

Designations like Gallagher’s Best-in-Class Employer help current and potential employees understand and appreciate an organization’s workplace culture and people strategy; important differentiators as employers compete for talent in a tight labor market.

The City of Boerne was assigned points based on its relative performance in:

  • Planning horizons for the benefits and compensation strategies
  • Extent of their wellbeing strategy
  • Turnover rate for full-time equivalents (FTEs)
  • Completion of a workforce engagement survey
  • Use of an HR technology strategy and its level of sophistication 
  • Difference in healthcare costs over the prior year
  • Use of a communication strategy

“The City of Boerne was recognized as a U.S. Best-in-Class Employer because of how they approach organizational priorities with a long-term outlook; provide high-quality, high-value benefits; and build and solidify a strong organizational culture through their communications,” said William F. Ziebell, CEO of Gallagher's Benefits and HR Consulting Division. “In doing so, The City invests in the whole employee by providing distinct and relevant wellbeing resources that will attract and retain talent.”

Gallagher is global insurance brokerage, risk management, and consulting services firm that operates in more than 130 countries.
