VEIC Again Recognized Among Top Vermont Employers

Apr 04, 2016

VEIC was recently named as one of the 2016 Best Places to Work in Vermont. This is the 6th year in a row that VEIC has been named among the top large employers with 150 employees or more.

The tenth annual list of the Best Places to Work in Vermont was created by Vermont Business Magazine, the Vermont Chamber of Commerce, the Vermont Department of Economic Development, the Vermont Department of Labor, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – Vermont State Council and Best Companies Group. The announcement was made at an awards ceremony in Burlington on March 31.

This statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in Vermont, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses. The 2016 Best Places to Work in Vermont list is made up of 38 companies.

Top employers are determined based on an evaluation of the company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. In addition, 75% of total evaluation is based on an employee survey to measure the employee experience.

“In a state with so many great employers it’s an honor to be named to this list – I feel like we’re in very good company,” said VEIC Executive Director Scott Johnstone. “Beyond the recognition, we value the survey as a means for finding out from our employees how we are doing so we can develop action plans to address key areas for improvement.”

Vermont Business Magazine congratulated all of the honorees in an article announcing the news on April 1.
