Welcome to Employers Association of the NorthEast.
Paragus Strategic IT of Hadley, MA and R.H. White Construction Companies, based in Auburn, MA, received their Employer of Choice awards at EANE’s Employment Law and HR Practices Conference on Tuesday, November 4th in Sturbridge, MA.
Paragus Strategic IT employees attend 90 to 100 hours of learning and development each year and, in 2012, the company was ranked by Inc. Magazine as one of the 5,000 fastest growing companies in the U.S.
R.H. White Construction Companies celebrated its 90th anniversary last year with a goal to raise $90,000 for local charities; the company actually raised $156,000. It provides over $700,000 in safety related training to employees annually.
Meredith Wise, President of EANE, said “Both R.H. White and Paragus have succeeded in creating amazing workplace cultures which maximize employee engagement, creativity and organizational success. They are truly connected to their communities, contributing financially as well as with staff time and talent to various charities and events.”
Winners of the Employer of Choice award are recognized for developing a culture for transforming and rewarding employee performance. Entrants are judged in categories that include: company culture, training and development, communication, recognition and reward, and work-life balance. Employers who have been in business for at least three years and have a minimum of 25 employees are eligible to participate; both the company size and its resources are considered in the screening and selection process. Sponsored by EANE and the Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce, the award has been given since 2011
The WorkForce Training Fund recently launched the Regional Training Capacity Pilot Program. All training providers across the Commonwealth were invited to submit. They received an amazing 34 applications and only 11 were chosen through a very competitive process. Unfortunately, EANE was not one of the top eleven.
Although we are unable to offer Massachusetts employers FREE seats through the Pilot Program, we have outlined multiple options that your company may qualify for under the Workforce Training Fund. Please join us for one of our briefings or a webinar to review the details. Register Here.
