Repeating The Feat: Three Years Of Top Workplaces (The Hartford Courant)
By Dan Haar

This year's list of 55 Hartford Courant/FOX CT Top Workplaces award winners includes a "Terrific Twenty" who have won in all three years since the contest started. That score of employers deserves special recognition for consistency.

Within that list of 20, a few stand out for having won repeated distinction. Most outstanding is William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage & Insurance, which has taken the top spot among large employers in all three years, with its roster of independent contractor agents.

Three employers, including Raveis, have had multiple finishes in the Top Three in their categories, as well as multiple special awards. They include Virtus Investment Partners and Primary Residential Mortgage Inc.-TeamPrimary.

InCord, a Colchester-based maker of safety netting, is the only manufacturer on the 2013 list. It placed first in its category in 2011 and has won a special award in all three years.

Only TeamPrimary has placed in the Top Three in its category and won a special award in each of the three years. TeamPrimary's awards have been all different--for communication, for doing things efficiently and, this year, for appreciation by employees.

And, remarkably, TeamPrimary has finished in second place in the highly competitive small employer category in all three years. The Salt Lake City-based company, founded in 2001, has three locations in the Courant/FOX CT area--Manchester, Glastonbury and Norwich. Employees cite the festive yet efficient culture, strong managers and, well, teamwork.

"At Team Primary," an employee wrote in this year's Top Workplaces survey, "we are in every sense of the word ... a "Team."
