East Hartford Town Council Honors Goodwin College
During their meeting on October 7, the East Hartford Town Council celebrated Goodwin College as one of four organizations in town to be named one of the Hartford Courant/FoxCT Top Workplaces for 2014. “We’re very proud that there were four employers in East Hartford that were recognized as top workplaces,” Council Chair Rich Kehoe said.
Goodwin was honored along with Intercommunity Inc., Kelser Corporation, and United Steel, Inc., who each received certificates of special recognition and a commemorative gift from the town in honor of their achievements. “[Goodwin has] done an awful lot of development along the river and is a great asset to the town,” Kehoe added.
In total, the Hartford Courant and Fox CT recognized 60 companies and organizations in Greater Hartford, based solely on surveys about the workplace completed by their employees. Goodwin was the only college to make the list.
“It’s really nice that we have so many great places to work, chosen by the people who work there,” Mayor Marcia Leclerc said.
“It was the collective opinions of our community that earned these honors for Goodwin,” President Mark Scheinberg said of the honor. “This award recognizes the community that we are all helping to build.”
Goodwin was also named one of the 35 Best Places to Work in Connecticut by the Hartford Business Journal earlier this year.
