BRANCHBURG, N.J., March 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Vanguard Energy Partners, a leader in the design and installation of large-scale solar electric systems, has been named one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey.

This prestigious award program identifies, recognizes and honors the top places of employment in New Jersey. The Best Places to Work in New Jersey program is made up of 70 companies split into two categories: 29 small/medium-sized companies (15-249 employees) and 41 large-sized companies (more than 250 employees). Vanguard is one of only 29 businesses named to the Best Places to Work in New Jersey in the small/medium-sized category.

"We’ve experienced unprecedented growth over the past year and it’s gratifying to know that our employees feel like they are growing with us -- both professionally and personally,” said Vanguard CEO Jim LaFleur. “We’ve created a company culture built on the concept that our customer’s successes are the result of the entire Vanguard team. We’re proud of this achievement,” added LaFleur.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the 70 Best Places to Work in New Jersey. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience.  The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. The registration and survey process was managed by Best Companies Group of Harrisburg, PA, which analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

The award program was created in 2005 by NJBIZ. NJBIZ program sponsors and partners will honor this year’s 70 Best Places to Work and announce their ranking during an awards dinner and ceremony on Tuesday April 26, 2011 at the Hilton East Brunswick.
