LUDLOW, Vt. – Okemo Mountain Resort was recently named one of the 2018 Best Places to Work in Vermont. 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 2018 Best Places to Work in Vermont list is made up of 50 companies.
“At Okemo, everything we do as a family business reflects our desire to support our employees in what they do to create ‘The Okemo Difference’ for our guests,” said Okemo Mountain Resort Co-owner and Vice President Diane Mueller. “We were especially proud to learn that Okemo is the only ski resort to be recognized as a 2018 Best Places to Work in Vermont.”
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; be in business a minimum of one 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 percent 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 percent 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 will be announced at a special awards presentation in early spring 2018.
The 12th 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, and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – Vermont State Council and Best Companies Group.
