MONTPELIER, Vermont (February 22, 2018)—Vermont Mutual Insurance Group®, has once again been recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Vermont for 2018. This is the third consecutive year Vermont Mutual has received this recognition.
Every year Vermont Business Magazine, in conjunction with the Vermont Chamber of Commerce, the Vermont Department of Labor, the Vermont Department of Economic Development, the Society for Human Resource Management, Vermont State Council and Best Companies Group, surveys Vermont companies to find the best places to work in the state.
“Since first entering the Best Places to Work survey in 2016, employees have continuously voted Vermont Mutual as a Best Place to Work and we’re very proud to receive that designation” stated Dan Bridge, Vermont Mutual’s President and CEO. Bridge continued “And we’re equally proud of our employees, all of whom help to create a working environment we believe is second to none.”
Companies from across the state enter a two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Vermont. The first part of the survey consists of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process is worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consists of an employee survey to measure employee satisfaction. This part of the process is worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation.
Susan Chicoine, Vice President of Human Resources, noted “We all work hard to make Vermont Mutual a healthy and rewarding place to work, but it’s our employees that really make the difference. Everyone works together to create a supportive and collaborative work experience, which is the foundation of our organizational culture here at Vermont Mutual.”
The rankings of all of the companies that participated will be revealed on March 21, 2018 at the Best Places to Work in Vermont Ceremony, to be held in Burlington, Vermont. To learn more about Vermont Mutual, visit: vermontmutual.com.
