(Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, December 11, 2020) US Alliance Group, Inc (USAG) today announces it has been recognized by the Orange County Register as a Top Workplace for 2020, ranked 9th out of the top 50 in the small business category. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of what would be top workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

One of US Alliance Group Inc’s core values is generosity. Generosity is more than a part of our mission —it’s ingrained in the way we work. Every one of us is generous with one another, with our time, with our knowledge. It is the heart of who we are as an organization.

Standards are held high for how the company goes the extra mile to treat their employees well. “USAG is the type of culture I was in search of for years. I wanted to work in an environment where both my professional and personal skills were appreciated, but that the company knew me as a person as well. I know USAG cares about me as an individual, but also cares about my professional development. To work for a company that has been awarded OC Register’s Top Workplace for two years straight is an honor” said Caroline Rutenbar, Vice President of Finance. USAG is actively seeking new and exciting ways to motivate and encourage employees to go above and beyond with their work and overall health. “Over the last several months we’ve had a mobility challenge where we get paid to exercise…who can pass that up?!”

USAG promotes healthy living by encouraging and rewarding its employees to participate in events such as RAGNAR, standing workstations, monthly team walking challenges, and onsite gym with employee family and friend access. USAG’s CEO, Fadi Cheikha, and his wife Kim Cheikha, founded Aiden Whisper, a nonprofit charity that helps support a number of organizations where 100-percent of donations go directly to the organizations themselves. USAG employees are awarded “ETO” days where they are encouraged to donate their time to Aiden Whisper, other charities, community events, or self-improvement.
