Amerigroup Named to 2011 “Best Places to Work in Virginia” List

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (Wednesday, February 23, 2011) – Amerigroup Corporation (NYSE: AGP) has been named one of Virginia’s Best Places to Work for 2011 through a survey conducted by the Best Companies Group.

Amerigroup associates in Virginia were selected randomly last fall by the Best Companies Group to complete an outside survey – an initiative used to identify and recognize Virginia’s best employers. As a result of the associate’s responses, Amerigroup received the honor in the large employer category. The full results are in the February issue of Virginia Business magazine. Lists also were compiled for small and midsize employers.

“At Amerigroup, we are able to attract and retain the best and brightest associates because of our mission of making the health care system work for those who need a little help, as well as our competitive compensation and benefit offerings,” said Linda Whitley-Taylor, Amerigroup executive vice president of Human Resources.

The Best Companies Group ranked companies in ten categories, including employee stock options, 401(k) retirement plan, health plan offerings, telecommuting opportunities and tuition reimbursement.
