MONTPELIER, Vermont (October 29, 2018)—It is not unusual for company executives at Vermont Mutual Insurance Group® to have their hands in multiple areas of the business, so expectedly it can be quite a challenge to keep anything hidden from them... but that is precisely what employees managed to do in recognition of National Boss's Day.
Unbeknownst to company executives, Vermont Mutual employees gathered together to present them with a large framed card signed by all employees and a special Leadership Award commemorating the event. During the ceremony several employees got up to speak on behalf of their departments to express their gratitude for the expert and inclusive leadership of Vermont Mutual's executive team.
Senior Executive Assistant, Paula Clark, employed with the company for nearly 30 years, noted "Their adventurous and fun leadership style has a way of making us all feel that even though things change here...we can count on them to make it an easier transition for those changes." Clark continued "They make work interesting and above all, they guide us with their passion for the growth and success of Vermont Mutual."
Company President and CEO, Dan Bridge, surprised and touched by the gesture, remarked "In all of the years we've been working in this industry, I think it’s safe to say that this is one of the most unexpected and meaningful experiences we’ve been a part of.” Speaking on behalf of the executives, Bridge added "We wish to thank every one of our employees for this thoughtful show of appreciation, it means a lot to us all."
National Boss Day was first officially proclaimed in 1962 and is recognized every October 16.
