Named one of the 2018 Best Places to Work in Vermont!

Posted: Sep 07, 2018

Once again, Co-op is near the top of the list of Best Places to Work in Vermont for 2018!

In our second year of participation, we moved up one spot on the Small Busi­nesses list – we are ranked fifth out of 20 employers. (Another 30 companies were ranked on separate medium and large employer lists.)

The list is developed by the Best Com­panies Group and sponsored by Vermont Business Magazine, the Vermont Cham­ber of Commerce, the Society for Human Resource Management Vermont State Council, and Vermont’s departments of economic opportunity and labor. The process includes a review of company practices and policies, but the results de­pend mostly on direct survey feedback from company employees.

Co-op management knows that pro­viding a desirable workplace is part of what allows employees to serve its members well. We stood out on pay and benefits, on work environment, and on relationship with supervisors. But the employee feedback from the survey re­ally tells the success story:

“Good work-life balance, community involvement, caring atmosphere, able to have fun while working hard.”

“The team atmosphere is second to none. There is not one employee who is above pitching in to help any oth­er member of the company when needed.”

“The atmos­phere and culture are very inviting. People genuinely care for one an­other.”

“Provides excel­lent benefit package. Treats employees as family.”

“Co-op tries to do the right thing by its members, employees, and community. I never doubt intention or integrity.”

Vermont’s other property-casualty in­surance companies made the list as well. They ranked #5 in medium companies and #9 in large. Our collective good per­formance lines up with studies that rate financial services highly as an industry to work in.

Co-operative Insurance Companies has been meeting property and casualty insurance needs since 1915, offering farm, home, auto, business, and other insurance to people in Vermont and New Hampshire. It is owned by its members and committed to protecting them with fast and fair claims service, farm safety expertise, and local operations.
