Henry Epp

Reporter, Co-host of The Frequency

I cover business and the economy. I’m interested in hearing from those of you who make up our state’s private sector: Do you work at a local company that’s become a global brand (like Cabot, Seventh Generation or Darn Tough)? Do you work for an international corporation that has found a home in Vermont (like GlobalFoundries, General Dynamics or Keurig Dr Pepper)? Do you work at one of Vermont’s many breweries, organic farms, or other local businesses?

What is it like at your workplace? How does your experience match the public perception of your employer? How could Vermont better support its workforce?

You can submit story tips and share your experiences in the form below or you can call 802-552-8899 to leave me a voicemail.
