On September 20 at the Aqua Turf in Southington, Connecticut, the Hartford Courant hosted its annual Top Workplaces awards ceremony celebrating 60 employers that made the 2018 list. CNC Software, Inc., previously named a Top Workplace in the small employer category, won first place among mid-size companies in 2018. Not only did CNC Software move from the small to mid-size category this year, the company plans to expand its workforce an additional 11 percent in the coming year.
Low employee turnover is another marker of the excellent workplace culture at CNC Software. Many employees have been with the company for decades, embracing opportunities to evolve and expand their roles within the company.
CNC Software is a family-owned business and promotes a supportive, familial corporate culture. Health and wellness are stressed at CNC Software, with an onsite gym facility, wellness support, walking trails, and more. The company has a green initiative with recycling, composting, onsite gardens, solar panels, geothermal wells and heat pumps. Educational opportunities are supported, and professional development is part of everyone’s job responsibilities. The company also recognized the importance of communication among employees at all levels to discuss the direction of the business as well as the company culture.
“This is really a tribute to our employees to receive this honor,” shares Director of Human Resources Jason Chateauneuf. “Our company leadership is committed to empowering employees to strive for excellence in personal and professional endeavors, but it’s really our employees that move our initiatives forward and take advantage of the opportunities they see in our industry. As a mid-size business, we are truly like family. We have our challenges and growing pains along the way, but we have always been able to face them together and move forward as a whole. This has proven to be a winning strategy as we expand our business in step with the current boom in manufacturing.” Jason added further.
