Mt Vernon Mills – A History of Caring

Mt Vernon Mills with 1,200 employees is a major driver in the beautiful northwest Georgia town of Trion.  Mt Vernon Mills has two facilities colocated in Trion on the banks of the Chattooga River.  For over 20 years they’ve had a “medical department” but back in 2003 with the help of Healthstat they opened a separate on-site clinic.  EmployersLikeMe sat down with Gary Williams who runs all the HR functions for the mills parent company Mount Vernon.  Check out the video to hear Gary’s description of what they’ve done and how it has worked.
