Union Mutual chosen as one of the ‘Best Places to Work’ in Vermont
Union Mutual Fire Insurance Company was recently named as one of the 2015 Best Places to Work in Vermont. It marks the second straight year Union Mutual Fire Insurance Company has earned this distinction.
“We are very pleased to announce that Union Mutual has again been recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work In Vermont,” Union Mutual President and CEO Michael Nobles said. “Being recognized once is a real accomplishment and being recognized twice is a true privilege. There are many great Vermont companies and the focus on being one of the best and the feedback it provides helps Union Mutual continue to evolve so it best serves the needs of our employees, their families and communities.”
The 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.
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 2015 Best Places to Work in Vermont list is made up of 30 companies.
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
- Be a for-profit, not-for-profit business or government entity;
- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in the state of Vermont;
- Have at least 15 employees working in the state of Vermont; and
- Be in business a minimum of 1 year.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Vermont. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems 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 rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Vermont and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
The final rankings for each category were announced at a special awards presentation on March 26, 2015 at the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center.
