Whip Salon, with three locations in Connecticut, has been awarded as a “Top Workplaces 2019” honoree by Hearst Connecticut Media Group for small businesses.
Out of nearly 1,000 businesses across the region, the salon placed 11th in the small business category, and Whip also picked up a nod from employees as being the most open to “New Ideas.” It was the only salon to be recognized by the list, and it was the youngest company on the list to receive this .
The award is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey of 24 questions. The categories measure across several aspects of workplace culture including alignment, connection, effectiveness, management, leadership, engagement and working conditions.
