MONTPELIER, Vermont (Feb 6, 2020)—For the fifth year in a row, Vermont Mutual Insurance Group® has been recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Vermont by Vermont Business Magazine and the Vermont Chamber of Commerce. The nationally recognized Property & Casualty Insurer has earned the distinction each year it has participated in the survey.
Vermont Business Magazine surveys companies annually to identify the best places to work in the state. They review company policies, systems, practices and demographics. Included in the assessment are anonymous survey responses from employees, which account for 75% of the total evaluation.
Dan Bridge, Vermont Mutual’s President and CEO stated “Vermont Mutual has been recognized as a Top 50 insurer in the U.S. for eleven consecutive years, confirming our expertise in the insurance business.” Bridge continued “We believe our work environment and culture contribute significantly to our success and we are proud of our employees continued commitment to making Vermont Mutual a ‘Best Place to Work’".
Susan Chicoine, Vice President of Human Resources, remarked “Vermont Mutual has been an employer in Vermont for over 190 years. In fact, many of our employees count the number of years they’ve been with the company in decades, rather than years and that is a testament to the positive atmosphere we all enjoy here.” Chicoine added
“By offering a healthy work-life balance, flexible hours, competitive pay and benefits, both our employees and the company, benefit greatly.”
The final rankings will be announced at a special awards presentation on March 30, 2020 at the DoubleTree Hotel in So Burlington from 5:00 pm thru 7:30 pm. The awards program is presented in partnership with the Vermont State Council, Society for Human Resource Management, the Vermont Department of Labor, the Vermont Department of Economic Development, and Best Companies Group.
