Midland Claims – Billings Chamber of Commerce Employer of the Year
It is not often that a relatively small claims office / TPA in a small city is honored among 1,800 business representatives. But that’s what took place this year with Midland Claims Service, Inc.
The employees of Midland put together an application for their company to the Billings Chamber of Commerce. The application was for the company to be considered among the 1,300 member businesses for consideration of the honor of Employer of the Year. Considering the high quality of businesses in the Billings area, Chamber members employing more than 50,000 people, they thought the chances were slim.
