89 North Celebrated at “Best Places to Work in Vermont” Ceremony

Categories: Featured, Personnel News, News & Events

The Sixth Time the Firm Has Been Lauded in the Last Six Years

An enthusiastic set of employees from 89 North and its sister company Chroma Technology was on hand to receive the award in the medium sized business category.

This year’s ceremony was made even more special by Chroma Technology’s Head of People & Culture, Mara Rivera, chairing the event. This gave the evening’s proceedings an even more special feeling for the leadership and employees that had gathered to participate.

The two firms, which are combined for the rankings, ranked #5 out of 12 in the medium-sized business category (up from 11th place last year). Their overall satisfaction survey score was 89% (compared to 82% last year), and scores went up in every category. In fact, the rankings were the highest recorded in the 6 years that 89 North and Chroma have participated in the program.

Never resting on their laurels, the firms are following up with department-specific roundtables that will be formed to listen and re-visit actions and changes implemented from feedback received last year.
