CCS just made the exclusive list of one of the Best Places to Work in Vermont for 2019! 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.
“There’s a lot of satisfaction in earning this statewide recognition of our exceptional workplace,” said Elizabeth Sightler, executive director at CCS. “As the state’s highest performing supported employment provider, we recognize that if we’re going to find meaningful work for the people we serve, we also must provide a meaningful workplace.”
This twelfth 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 Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – Vermont State Council, and Best Companies Group.
Businesses from across Vermont entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Vermont. Each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics were evaluated, along with an employee survey that measured the employee experience.
“It makes me incredibly proud to know that the staff feel this is a good place to work.,” Sightler said. “We live by the adage that if we take care of the staff, they’ll take care of the people we serve. I’ve known we do both well for a long time – and still it’s an honor to have an independent and objective assessment that we really are a Best Place to Work!”
