The announcement was made by the Hartford Business Journal and Best Companies Group, which started Best Places to Work awards program in 2006. BLR made that initial list, and it was selected as one of the best places to work in Connecticut again in 2007.
This statewide survey of employees and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Connecticut, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce, and businesses. The Best Places to Work in Connecticut 2010 list is made up of 25 companies.
“BLR is honored to be named one of The Best Places to Work in Connecticut” said Robert L Brady, CEO and founder of BLR. “Our managers and supervisors are the ones who deserve the credit for this award. They care about our products and customers, but they also care about the people who work for BLR. It's great to see them recognized."
To be considered for selection, companies had to meet the following eligibility requirements:
- Have at least 15 employees working in Connecticut;
- Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in the state of Connecticut; and
- Be in business a minimum of 1 year.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Connecticut. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. That part of the process was worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Connecticut and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
BLR will be recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Connecticut awards ceremony coordinated by the Hartford Business Journal on Thursday, March 25. The final rankings will be announced at the event.
