Sonnax Named a Best Place to Work in Vermont
The employee-owned company of Sonnax Industries, Inc., was recently named one of the Best Places to Work in Vermont by the Vermont Business Magazine. Sonnax previously won this honor in 2012, the first time it participated in the annual statewide survey and awards program recognizing company workplace excellence.
“The entire team at Sonnax is very proud and honored to receive this award,” remarked Sonnax President & CEO Tommy Harmon. “I believe this award represents success in executing one of the strategies of our mission statement: ‘provide our employees with a rewarding career experience that is respectful and challenging’.”
The 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. The program is presented in partnership with the Vermont Chamber of Commerce, the Vermont Department of Labor, the Vermont Department of Economic Development, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) - Vermont State Council and Best Companies Group.
Companies from across the state began the two-part process in 2013 to determine the Best Places to Work in Vermont. 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, analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings. Twenty-seven companies in all made the 2014 list of Best Places to Work in Vermont.
“We already believed we were one of the best places to work in Vermont, and receiving this recognition confirms that belief,” said Harmon.
