The Bozeman Job Service Employer’s Committee (JSEC) is pleased to announce the selection of three businesses for the Bozeman JSEC 2020 Employer of Choice Award.

Bozeman businesses Coffman Engineers, ERA Landmark, and Bridgercare are being recognized for their dedication to providing healthy and positive workplaces and their commitment to employees. All three businesses have also been nominated for consideration for the statewide Employer of Choice Award presented by the Montana State Employer Council (MSEC).

“These three businesses have had a positive impact on the Bozeman community, each through innovative ways that support and help each of their employees grow,” Bozeman Job Service Workforce Consultant Susan Hanken said.

Award winners were selected for each of three categories based on size: businesses with 25 or fewer employees, 26 to 50 employees and businesses with more than 50 employees. Winning businesses are selected based on the benefits they provide, their leadership and workplace culture, opportunities for employee training and development, and their community orientation.
