COLCHESTER, Vt. — Nokian Tyres North America of Colchester has been named one of Vermont's Best Places to Work, according to two state entities.
Vermont Business Magazine and the Vermont Chamber of Commerce recently lauded the North American subsidiary of Nokia, Finland-based Nokian Tyres P.L.C. in a statewide survey managed by the Best Companies Group.
According to Nokian, the survey is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Vermont, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses. The evaluation process has two steps, and the results are separated into three categories: small, medium and large businesses.
The first part of the survey evaluated a company's workplace policies, practices, philosophies, systems and demographics, while the second consisted of an employee survey that measured employees experience.
Nokian Tyres said it prides itself as a life-driven company "with a mission to provide peace of mind in all conditions." The Nokia-based tire maker adheres to the Hakkapeliitta spirit (its winter tires are named after this), which drives the success of the business through entrepreneurship, inventiveness and spirit.
