PHOENIX (August 18, 2015) – P.B. Bell, a leader in multifamily housing and real estate development and management, is being recognized for its commitment to safety. For the eighth consecutive year, P.B. Bell has been included on CopperPoint Mutual Insurance Company’s exclusive “Best of the Best” list for its efforts to keep employees safe.
The Phoenix-based CopperPoint Mutual Insurance Company, an advocate for workplace safety, recognizes businesses on its “Best of the Best” list annually. The recognition is awarded each year to fewer than 100 insured policyholders out of a pool of about 16,000. This year, 43 businesses received the award.
“Workplace safety has always been a priority of P.B. Bell’s, understanding that most of our workplaces are tucked inside housing communities,” Julia Leonard, vice president, human resources for P.B. Bell, said. “We take great pride in knowing that our employees are safe while at work, which in turn reinforces safe communities for our residents.
CopperPoint recognized P.B. Bell, in part, because it demonstrated a loss ratio of 20 percent or less during the most recent policy period. In addition, P.B. Bell demonstrated a loss ratio of 30 percent or less during three consecutive policy periods.
