The McIntyre Group is pleased to announce that they have recently been named Best Places to Work in Connecticut. This fifteenth annual program was created by the Hartford Business Journal and Best Companies Group.

This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in Connecticut, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses. The list is made up of 41 companies split into two categories: 24 small/medium-sized companies (15-199 US employees) and 17 large-sized companies (200 or more US employees). The McIntyre Group has been named one of this year’s Best Places to Work in Connecticut in the small/medium-sized category.

“What’s most important to me as a leader of this organization is that this award is based on our employee feedback. We made a mindful decision to create a conscious culture based on a set of core values that translate into behaviors and how we interact. It is extremely important to me that our employees look forward to coming in to work everyday and that we provide an optimal environment where people are able to be their best,” said President of The McIntyre Group, Melissa Mongillo.

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

– Be a for-profit, not-for-profit business or government entity
– Be a publicly or privately held business
– Have a facility in Connecticut
– Have at least 15 employees in Connecticut
– Be in business a minimum of 1 year

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Connecticut. The first part consisted of evaluating each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Connecticut, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

The ranked companies will be recognized at a special awards ceremony on Thursday, February 28, and the actual rankings will be published in the March issue of the Hartford Business Journal.
