It’s not a new honor, but it’s one we’re always thrilled to receive. RNRG has been named one of the “2016 Best Places to Work in Vermont” via an annual survey and awards program designed to recognize the places of employment in Vermont that benefit the state's economy, workforce, and businesses. The program is a collaboration between Vermont Business Magazine, the VT Chamber of Commerce, the VT Department of Economic Development, the VT Department of Labor, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – Vermont State Council, and Best Companies Group.

Our company-wide goal has always been to manage a well-run, profitable company where employees feel good about coming to work every day and have opportunities to do their very best work. The BPTW award recognizes our resilience in a volatile industry and tenacity in sustaining a dedicated and passionate workforce.

Organizational change does not happen quickly, nor is it without risk and discomfort. Since 2014, our focus has been on four key areas: fueling existing products, growing into new sectors, innovating up and down the value chain, and aligning our people and processes in a forward-focused direction. Our goal of alignment has especially helped us focus on clear and open communications, driving decision-making deeper into our organization, formalizing leadership development efforts, and emphasizing collaboration and innovation.

We’re honored to be included, and we encourage you to check out the detailed profiles of all 38 winners here.
