LUDLOW, Vt. – Okemo Mountain Resort was recently named one of the 2015 Best Places to Work in Vermont. 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 – Vermont State Council and Best Companies Group.
“Diane and I are very proud of Okemo for being recognized as one of Vermont’s Best Places to Work again this year,” said Okemo Mountain Resort Co-Owner Tim Mueller. “However, our employees deserve the credit. It is very easy to manage when you have hard-working, dedicated and loyal people working with you. From our Division Managers through to our line employees, we have a great team and it is because of their work ethic and cooperative attitudes that Okemo is a great place to work.”
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. Okemo was a 2014 Best Places to Work in Vermont honoree and ranked seventh in the large-business category. It was the first ski resort to make the prestigious list. The 2015 Best Places to Work in Vermont list is made up of 30 companies.
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill several eligibility requirements. They also entered a two-part survey process. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. 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 on March 26, 2015 at the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center. For more information on the Best Places to Work in Vermont program, visit www.BestPlacesToWorkInVT.com.
