RENO, Nev. -- July 31, 2013

EMPLOYERS^® (NYSE: EIG), America's small business insurance specialist^®, will
officially celebrate its 100^th anniversary on July 31, 2013. For the past
century, EMPLOYERS has played a significant role in increasing workplace
safety for America’s small businesses, helping them to take a strategic
approach to workers’ compensation insurance and protect their most important
assets, their people.

EMPLOYERS has experienced a unique and exceptional evolution over this period.
The company originated in 1913 as Nevada’s State Fund as a means to increase
workplace safety for the state’s workers and provide insurance for the state’s
businesses. After a successful and industry-leading privatization in 2000, the
organization transformed in 2005 into a mutual holding company, the first ever
in Nevada. In 2007, EMPLOYERS demutualized and completed an initial public
offering to become a publicly traded company listed on the New York Stock
Exchange. The company has continually added to and expanded its operations to
better meet the needs of more small businesses, as well as to increase the
ease of doing business with insurance agents. Today, the company operates in
31 states and the District of Columbia.

“EMPLOYERS’ growth and evolution from a monopolistic state fund to a publicly
traded company is impressive. Its 100-year anniversary is a tremendous
milestone, and it couldn’t have been achieved without the support of our
dedicated and talented employees, as well as our valued policyholders, agents,
partners, and shareholders. Together, we have delivered on an ambitious
vision,” stated Douglas D. Dirks, president and chief executive officer.

Dirks added: “I’m very proud of what we have accomplished as an organization
and am confident of our future as we continue to help America’s small
businesses succeed.”

In recognition and celebration of its rich history, EMPLOYERS will host
commemorative events at its Reno, Nevada headquarters and at its offices
across the country on Wednesday, July 31.
