This year’s Hartford Business Journal Best Places to Work honorees have gone above and beyond to find creative, strategic, and safe ways to make work fun, inclusive and forward-thinking places for employees to thrive. Whether it’s a broad array of medical benefit plans from which to choose, happy hours, healthy cooking webinars or employee-recognition awards, these organizations let their people know they are valued in myriad ways. 
Many of these efforts have had to pivot in light of the pandemic – with company social events held virtually, for example – but were prioritized, planned and executed.

Employee retention, ultimately, provides stable workplaces. The determined efforts of these award winners in creating the Best Places to Work in Connecticut make stable workplaces for all employees – not to mention happier, healthier company cultures overall. 

How the ranking process works:

The Best Places to Work in Connecticut program was created by the Hartford Business Journal and Workforce Research Group to identify and recognize the best places to work in the state of Connecticut. The program is managed by Workforce Research Group, a third-party research firm that manages similar programs all over the United States and in Canada.

The Best Places to Work in Connecticut program is open to all public or privately-held organizations, either for-profit or not-for-profit. 

To be eligible for consideration, companies must have a total of 15 or more employees working in the state of Connecticut. Companies with headquarters in another state, but a physical location in Connecticut with 15 or more employees, are also eligible. 

Participation in this program requires organizations to go through a workplace assessment process, which includes surveying their employees, as well as taking an inventory of the company benefits, policies and offerings. 

The information is processed and analyzed by Workforce Research Group and then used to determine the Best Places to Work in Connecticut. 

All participating companies go through a two-part workplace assessment process. Part one of the assessment (worth 25% of the evaluation) consists of an employer questionnaire about benefits, policies, practices and other general information. 

Part two of the assessment (75% of the evaluation) consists of a confidential employee engagement and satisfaction survey. 

This comprehensive, two-part assessment allows the workplace experts at Workforce Research Group to perform an in-depth analysis of each company’s strengths and weaknesses and ultimately determine which companies deserved to make the list.
