Congratulations to the 2011 Best Places to Work in Frederick

Yesterday evening, four local companies were honored as the Best Places to Work in Frederick County at an awards ceremony held at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center in Frederick. The campaign, now in its 9th year, is a partnership between the Frederick County Office of Economic Development, the City of Frederick Department of Economic Development, the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce, and Frederick County Workforce Services.

Each business in Frederick County was invited to take the survey to identify what makes them the best place to work. Winners were identified based on the following criteria:

1. an enhanced workplace culture
2. a strong professional development program
3. benefits and amenities to provide a work and life balance
4. the encouragement of community and social responsibilities
5. and tools for healthy living

The winner of this year's campaign are:

EmpiriStat (Small Business Category with 1-10 Employees)
Default Resource (Medium Business Category with 11-50 Employees
DynPort Vaccine Company, LLC (Large Business Category with 51-200 Employees)
Hood College (Major Employer with 201+ Employees)

The Frederick County Office of Economic Development is proud to add these four companies to an elite group of past award winners that make up the Best Places to Work in Frederick!

A huge thank you to our sponsors who are also past year's winners. Without their support, this event would not have been possible: AOPA, DMS, Inc, Frederick Memorial Healthcare Systems, and Mount Saint Mary's University.
