HARTFORD, Conn. (March, 2016) - The Corporation for Independent Living (CIL), a specialist in constructing and financing group homes, sustained housing, accessibility accommodations and facilities for not-for-profit agencies, was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in Connecticut. This eleventh annual program was created by the Hartford Business Journal, Best Companies Group and sponsored by The Pita 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 30 companies split into two categories: 15 small/medium-sized companies (15-199 U.S. employees) and 15 large-sized companies (200 and more U.S. employees). CIL has been named 5th Best Places to Work in Connecticut in the small/medium category.

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 nominated 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 rankings were published in the March 2016 issue of the Hartford Business Journal and, the ranked companies were recognized at a special awards ceremony in March 2016.
