|#6 Best Company to Work For in NH|
|Published Monday, October 9, 2017|
For the past two decades, Business NH Magazine has partnered with NH Businesses for Social Responsibility to seek out NH’s best employers. Companies completed an extensive survey detailing their benefits packages and workplace practices. An employee engagement survey, administered by The Employee Engagement Group, had to be completed by at least 50 percent of a company’s workforce.
After analyzing the results of the employee engagement surveys and employer practices, the applicant pool was whittled down to 19 winning companies. Bruce Mast & Associates organized tours of the 12 highest scoring companies to determine the ranking of the top 10. Executives and HR professionals served as site tour judges, interviewing CEOs, hosting employee focus groups and touring facilities. Here is a profile of one of the winning companies:
