VermontBiz and the Vermont Chamber of Commerce are pleased to announce the top 57 Best Places to Work in Vermont 2023. The awards program was created in 2006 and is presented in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management, Vermont State Council, (VTSHRM) and the Vermont Department of Commerce and Community Development and Workforce Research 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).
See list of companies below.
“Of the 57 companies being recognized, we are excited to welcome fourteen new businesses to the list in 2023. We now have nine businesses that have appeared on the Best Places to Work in Vermont list for ten years or more. 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 VermontBiz started recognizing Vermont’s best employers”, states John Boutin, Publisher, VermontBiz.
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 full- or part-time permanent employees working in Vermont
- Have a physical operation in Vermont
- Are publicly or privately held organization
- Are a for-profit, not-for-profit, or a government organization
- Have been in business for at least one year, at the program registration deadline
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 20% 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 80% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Workforce Research Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Vermont and analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
"With yet another year of dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic and its effects on Vermont businesses, employees working remotely, hybrid working models and labor shortages to name a few, 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 work. These employees and employers are committed to a productive workplace, be that while in the office or working remotely. This list is a testament to the fantastic companies here in Vermont and is by far our largest list since 2006. This list consist of businesses from every corner of Vermont with many diverse products and services", states Boutin.
Who is number one?
The final rankings for each category will be announced at a special awards presentation On March 29th and each business ranking will be highlighted in the April issue of VermontBiz.
