This is not an awards ceremony. It is simply a recognition and celebration of those companies to whom the data points. The concept brings Vermont Business Magazine’s Top 100+ issue to life. Our goal is to provide a forum for smaller businesses throughout the state to learn from these top 25 company’s experiences.
Vermont Business Magazine will honor Vermont's most accomplished young leaders at the Rising Stars dinner. Award recipients will be selected by a panel of judges for their commitment to business growth, professional excellence and involvement in their communities.
Vermont Business Magazine and the Small Business Administration recognize the Small Business Person of the Year and also award other business owners in various other categories.
Named after former Governor Deane C Davis (1900-1990) and co-sponsored by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce and Vermont Business Magazine, the award is given to the Vermont company that embraces the unshakeable values that Davis brought to his office: enhancing the economy and championing the environment with the help of business and satisfied employees.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Vermont. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This 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 Vermont and also analyzed the data to determine the final rankings.
