Mintz + Hoke was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in Connecticut for the third consecutive year. This thirteenth 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 45 companies split into two categories: 27 small/medium-sized companies (15-199 U.S. employees); and 18 large-sized companies (200 or more U.S. employees). Mintz + Hoke has been named one of this year’s Best Places to Work in Connecticut in the small/medium category.

“We’re a small company that does big things,” said President and CEO of Mintz + Hoke, Ron Perine. “We’re only able to do that because of the people that come in and out of our doors every day. Our team shares a broad sense of curiosity and natural tendency to take on tough challenges, which is why we punch way above our weight class. This award recognizes the culture we’ve created, but it’s the people who work here that created that environment. So it’s really a great way to congratulate our entire team for a job well done and I appreciate the opportunity to do so.”

“The quality of the work we produce is directly related to the culture we promote,” said Human Resources Manager, Christine Millette. “That’s why we put a premium on fostering the kind of environment for creativity to thrive. Because we’ve all made a personal investment to be accountable for our culture, Mintz + Hoke truly is a great place to work.”

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 in February, and the actual rankings will be published in the March issue of the Hartford Business Journal.
