Merchants Fleet, the nation’s fastest-growing fleet company, was recently named a Greater Boston Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®. The company was one of only five New Hampshire-based companies to make the list. The award is the latest in the company’s recent run of workplace culture achievements, including Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® (second year in a row) and Business NH Magazine’s Best Companies to Work For (sixth year in a row) and inclusion in their Best Companies to Work For Hall of Fame.
Companies who are selected for Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® have been evaluated by an independent research firm on key measures in various categories, including compensation, benefits, employee education and development, employee engagement and retention, employee achievement and recognition, and work-life balance.
“This year it was critical to put employee safety first while finding virtual ways to keep our culture strong and foster employee connections with working remotely during the pandemic,” said Alicia Hart, Vice President, Human Resources. “Initiatives we successfully launched this year included a co-pilot program to connect employees across the business, virtual hangouts, a work from home program, a new employee education and tuition reimbursement program called LearnIQ, and a Back to School program that provided supplies to students and recognized recent graduates.”
Companies will be honored on Wednesday, October 28, on a digital platform and will also compete for three “Best of the Best Overall” elite awards.
