Tue, 01/14/2020 - 4:27pm -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine and the Vermont Chamber of Commerce are pleased to announce the top 51 Best Places to Work in Vermont 2020. The awards program was created in 2006 and is presented in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management, Vermont State Council, (SHRM), the Vermont Department of Commerce and Community Development, and Best Companies Group.

The Best Places to Work in Vermont list is broken down into three categories, Small Businesses (15-99 employees), Medium Businesses (100-249 employees) and Large Businesses (250+ employees).

Of the 51 companies being recognized, ten are new to the list in 2020. Two companies, Edward Jones and King Arthur Flour have won the distinction of Best Places to Work in Vermont every year since 2006, the first year Best Companies Group started surveying Vermont companies. AsicNorth, Inc, Fuse, LLC and Wild Apple Graphics have been on the Best Places to Work in Vermont list for ten consecutive years.

This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Vermont, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses.

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have at least 15 employees working in Vermont;
  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
  • Be a publicly or privately held business;
  • Have a facility in the state of Vermont; and
  • Must be in business a minimum of 1 year.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Vermont.

The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation.

The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation.

The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Vermont and analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

"All Vermonters know that Vermont is a great place to live, work and play. We know that our employees are happy with their place of employment. The employers have created a work environment where the employees love to come to work. This list is a testament to the fantastic companies here in Vermont," said John Boutin, Publisher, Vermont Business Magazine.

Who is number one?

The final rankings for each category will be announced at a special awards presentation on March 30, 2020 at the DoubleTree Hotel in South Burlington from 5:00 pm thru 7:30 pm.
