Mission-driven: SNOW Partners gets unique workplace award

Parent company of Mountain Creek and Big SNOW American Dream noted for its purpose-driven mission

SNOW Partners may be known by its customers for its ski and snowboarding areas, Mountain Creek Resort and the Big SNOW American Dream indoor snow facility. And it certainly is grateful for that.

Company officials, however, are just as proud to not only be a great place to work — but a place that does purpose-driven work.

The company has been recognized with two highly coveted Top Workplaces 2023 awards — Top Workplaces USA and Top Workplaces NJ — by Energage, a purpose-driven organization that develops solutions to build and brand top workplaces. Additionally, SNOW Partners also has been recognized with several distinct cultural honors, scoring among the Top 5% of all companies for “Most Meaningful Places to Work,” “Most Innovative Companies” and “Overall Company Direction.”

SNOW Partners Chief People Officer Kelly Brooks said the awards show the company is meeting its mission.

Mountain Creek Resort is in the midst of a large-scale hiring effort to meet its staffing needs for all positions ahead of the busy summer season. In addition to competitive pay, potential resort employees can look forward to a number of unique perks and incentives, such as sign-on bonuses for full-time, part-time and seasonal entry-level positions and complimentary all-access season passes for employees and qualifying family members.

“At SNOW Partners, we lead and live by our mission statement, and we are very humbled to receive this feedback from our team members about how they feel about working at our companies,” she said. “We are happy to share this honor with them and we look forward to what lies ahead for the SNOW Partners team as we continue to grow.”

Top Workplaces is the nation’s most credible employer recognition program, celebrating organizations with 150 or more employees that have built great cultures. In 2023, 42,000 organizations were invited to partake in the nationwide survey, with recognition based solely upon the feedback of 20 million participating employees. For the past 15 years, Top Workplaces has measured employee engagement, leadership and basic workplace culture. Results are calculated by comparing the survey’s research-based statements, including 15 culture drivers, proven to predict high performance against industry benchmarks.

CEO Joe Hession said he was especially proud of this honor.

“This one means a lot to us, as it comes from the direct feedback our team members provide,” he said. “It’s one thing to say you live by your mission statement, it’s much harder to prove it, and this recognition shows us that our teams are really with us and excited about where we are heading together.”
