“The most critical element in creating a great work place is encouraging open and honest communication between all employees,” said founder, chairman and CEO Robert Fragasso. “Employee retention is a huge priority for us. When we create an enjoyable work environment, we find our employees are happier, more productive and more likely to stick with our firm. This recognition would not be possible without the talented group of professionals at Fragasso, and we’re extremely grateful for this latest honor.”

As part of the Best Places to Work program, the firm participates in an employee satisfaction survey to gauge employee engagement, advocacy and retention rates. More than 150 area companies applied to participate in this year’s Best Places to Work program. To qualify, employees from each company participated in an online survey.
