This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Connecticut, benefitting the state's economy, workforce and businesses.

"We are proud to have made this list for the sixth consecutive year," says Richard Upton, executive vice president of operations at ICON International.  "Our people are our greatest asset. Together we have built ICON into what it is today—over 27% of the employees have been here for more than 10 years."

ICON competed against many other companies statewide for the position. The Best Companies to Work for in CT are selected based on a stringent two-part employee survey process conducted by a third party.

The second part was designed to measure employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

ICON scored high marks in the following categories: (1) organization philosophy (2) individual employee opinion and (3) team infrastructure.  Employees also expressed gratification with the company's strong leadership, compensation and benefits, support for work-life balance, communication practices and corporate citizenship.

When asked about the chances of obtaining a position at ICON, Dawn Montelione, director of human resources, responded, "Teamwork and entrepreneurialism form the basis of our culture here at ICON; it is one of the reasons we have been so successful. However, our growth requires us to continually search for outstanding sales and media talent." If you are interested in working at ICON please email your resume to jobs@iconinternational.com.
