The Western Growers Family of Companies exists for one reason: to ensure the future viability of its members – the hard-working, salt-of-the-earth farmers who grow the fruits, vegetables and tree nuts that feed our nation.
Our members depend on us to help them remain competitive and profitable in spite of these trying circumstances, which we do by fighting – heart and soul – for them every single day. We passionately advocate for them in the halls of Congress and on the steps of the state capitol. We actively facilitate the advancement of technology designed to help them become more efficient and less dependent on diminishing resources. We diligently provide health insurance to their farm workers, as well as other insurance solutions tailored to the unique business.
Beyond serving those who work in agriculture, we support those in all sectors who help form the backbone of our country’s economy. Our efforts have since expanded to include a full suite of comprehensive health care and insurance solutions for all kinds of employers and their employees. These solutions include Pinnacle Claims Management, a third-party administrator that provides health benefits administration services to companies and organizations in all industries that self-fund their health insurance; Pinnacle Rx Solutions, a full-service pharmacy benefit manager (PBM); and Health Management, a leading health and wellness organization that offers employers scalable and comprehensive employee benefit solutions. . In addition, Pinnacle administers benefits for Western Growers Assurance Trust (WGAT), which is the largest provider of health benefits for the agriculture industry. WGAT was founded in 1957 to bridge the gap between health care and the agricultural industry. Our family of companies get the opportunity to serve our clients in a variety of ways, including claims processing, customer service, account management, eligibility, finance, health and wellness, IT and more. We maintain an in-house call center, which comprises a dedicated team of knowledgeable professionals who work collaboratively to answer all questions and service requests.
We are looking for smart, curious, and talented individuals with a spirit of resourcefulness and helpfulness to find their place in this robust workforce. There are many opportunities for those who are fascinated with our purpose and interested in growing within our organization. The Western Growers family is driven by a common bond: each of us contribute our unique talents to provide the agricultural industry with a unified lobbying voice, as well as innovative legal, financial, consulting, training and insurance services.
