National Life Group named to Inc.’s 2022 Best in Business List

National Life Group named to 2022 Inc. Best in Business List

Montpelier, VT - (December 6, 2022) National Life Group has been named to the Inc. 2022 Best in Business list in the insurance category. Inc.’s Best in Business Awards honor companies that have made an extraordinary impact in their fields and on society

National Life Group’s values are to “Do good, Be good, and Make good.” These values inform all the company does, including serving middle America, one of the most underinsured segments of the U.S. population, according to Deloitte, with life insurance and annuities to help protect themselves, their families, and their futures. National Life Group also serves the nation’s school employees, helping provide them with retirement solutions as well as through programs like LifeChanger of the Year that recognize the good they do for their students and in their communities.

National Life Group also created BUILD (Blacks Uplifted in Leadership) to address the shortage of people of color in leadership positions. With more than 2,400 members, BUILD’s goal is to create a home at NLG for the ongoing leadership development of Black financial services agents as part of its commitment to positively impact the Black community. BUILD is also an insight group for those who don’t come from that community but serve their financial needs. In February 2022, Black History Month, BUILD held a fundraiser in conjunction with the NLG Foundation which raised $25,000. In August 2022, BUILD hosted an inaugural summit providing training and support.

The Best in Business list, which can be found in the Winter issue of Inc. magazine (on newsstands December 13), recognizes the most dynamic companies of all sizes and industries that have had an outstanding influence on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society as a whole. 

Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., says, “Inc. magazine is dedicated to showcasing America’s most dynamic businesses and the great things they do. The Best in Business awards shine a light on those that have gone above and beyond their original mission to make a social, environmental or economic impact, benefiting those around them.”

Rather than relying on quantitative criteria tied to sales or funding, Inc.’s editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world. They then selected honorees in 55 different categories – from advertising to sustainability to retail, and more – and in age-based, revenue-based, size-based, and impact-based categories. The applicant pool was extremely competitive – a huge success for the 241 honored in the list’s third year. Honorees for gold, silver, bronze, and general excellence across industries and categories are featured online at
