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 Economic Development and Workforce Research Group.

This statewide survey and awards program were 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 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. Not all companies surveyed made the list of Best Places to Work in Vermont.
