Keeping Good Company

The awardees of the 2012 “Best Places to Work in Vermont” were announced recently and, among them, were numerous Roundtable members, including: Comcast, Entergy Nuclear Vermont Yankee, Gallagher, Flynn & Company, LLP, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Hickok & Boardman Financial Planning & Group Benefits, Inc., King Arthur Flour Co., Merchants Bank, Sonnax Industies, Inc. and Vermont Energy Investment Corp. Good companies, all, that employ workplace policies and practices that are conducive to happy and productive employees.We wish to congratulate each of them for the ecognition!

And if we think hard and look closely, no doubt we’ll find other examples in our own towns, of companies in which people brag about being employed by and and others love being affiliated with. They carry the less formal, yet no less important, accolades from their neighbors. Make sure to pat one of them on the back with praise for the ways in which they, too, contribute to Vermont’s vibrant economy and greater sense of community.
