Millennial Impressions

Florida Trend asked seven young employees at Best Companies around the state what they like best about their workplaces.

Jacqueline Miller, 31

Director of Workers’ Compensation Claims | Lanier Upshaw (No. 17 Midsized)

One-year employee Jacqueline Miller says Lanier Upshaw encourages workers who have been at the company for decades to share their experience and knowledge with newer workers like her. “They can be educated and develop experience from these more seasoned employees,” she says.

The on-the-job learning ensures that the company is in good hands for future generations, which is in all employees’ interests since Lanier Upshaw has an employee stock ownership program. “This is the next generation of the company. They look at it as an investment in their investment,” says Miller.

But learning goes both ways.

Lanier Upshaw knows it is in an evolving industry.

“They are so open to listening to younger voices,” Miller says of the company — especially new ideas and technology that can streamline processes or better serve its clients.
