Old Saybrook, CT, January 25, 2010— BLR® – Business & Legal Resources, the leading provider of employment, safety, and environmental compliance solutions was recently named one of the Best Places to Work in Connecticut 2010.

This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Connecticut, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses. The Best Places to Work in Connecticut 2010 list is made up of 25 companies.

“BLR is honored to be named one of The Best Places to Work in Connecticut” said Robert L Brady, CEO and founder of BLR. “Our managers and supervisors are the ones who deserve the credit for this award. They care about our products and customers, but they also care about the people who work for BLR. It's great to see them recognized."
