Apply Now for the 2017 Best Companies to Work For Competition
 
Published Thursday, March 23, 2017

BusinessNH Magazine and NH Businesses for Social Responsibility want to hear from  businesses whose employees love their jobs, have great benefits, are treated fairly and take pride in the work they do. The competition is open to any company with headquarters in NH. It is also open to companies with headquarters elsewhere but with 100 or more employees in NH or to smaller out-of-state companies that employ the majority (50 percent plus one) of their workforce in NH.

This year's application includes two streamlined online forms, one for employees and one for the employer. There is an entry fee of $775, and all applicants receive reports showing how they compare to other NH employers as well as national benchmarks for employee engagement.

The employee and employer surveys must be completed by 5 p.m. on May 19 and the employee survey must be completed by 50 percent of your workforce for NH-based companies or 50 percent of the NH workforce for out-of-state companies. The competition does not have a set number of winners, instead all companies that meet the threshold score will be honored. Last year that was 18 companies.essNH Magazine and NH Businesses for Social Responsibility want to hear from  businesses whose employees love their jobs, have great benefits, are treated fairly and take pride in the work they do.

  • 55% subsidize gym memberships
  • 22% offer sabbaticals
