Every year companies compete to be named one of the nation’s “Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation®”. Only companies that distinguish themselves as having the most innovative and thoughtful human resources approach can be bestowed this honor. These select companies will be recognized by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) on Friday, March 6th, 2020 at the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee.
Out of over 5,000 entries, only 540 companies were chosen. This year’s winners represent best practices in industries as diverse as information technology, financial services, manufacturing and marketing services (See the complete list of honorees.)
Vice President of Human Resources, Pam Hutchinson, is pleased that Choptank Transport is included on the list for the third consecutive year, especially since the company is growing so quickly. “The survey is evaluated solely based on employee feedback, so that adds real value for potential talent,” said Hutchinson. ““For an organization that will be adding over a hundred and fifty people in the next two years, this gives real momentum to our talent acquisition strategy.”
An independent research firm evaluates each company’s entry based on key measures in various categories. They include Compensation, Benefits and Employee Solutions; Employee Enrichment, Engagement and Retention; Employee Education and Development; Recruitment, Selection and Orientation; Employee Achievement and Recognition; Communication and Shared Vision; Diversity and Inclusion; Work-Life Balance; Community Initiatives; and Strategic Company Performance.
With the war on talent hitting the doorsteps of the Best and Brightest, this achievement means even more than it did a year ago. As we continue to raise the bar, these companies rise to the challenge through cultural innovation, maximizing their workforce potential,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs.
