ARAGLegal insurance and assistance business, ARAG has retained its two-star rating in the Best Companies Index for 2018.

The anonymous survey, which provides a detailed study of companies’ engagement with staff, covers areas such as leadership, wellbeing, reward and charitable giving. ARAG improved on the company’s 2017 score, placing it high among employers in its industry, as well as in the South West of England.

ARAG has grown substantially in recent years, passing the 100 employee mark in 2017 and now approaching 125.

“Business growth certainly brings its own challenges,” continues Buss, “but we’re already working on ways to maintain this momentum and make ARAG an even better place for people to work.”
