/Werner Electric Named 2019 Star Tribune Top Workplace 10 Consecutive Years


Cottage Grove, MN June 14, 2019—Werner Electric has been named one of the Top Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune.  This makes us a “10 for 10”. Werner Electric is one of only fifteen companies in Minnesota to have won this award for ten consecutive years.  A complete list of those selected is available at http://www.startribune.com/top-workplaces-10-time-winners-reveal-what-makes-them-great-minnesota-employers-and-brands/511091012/ and was also published in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section on Sunday, June 16.

Produced by the same team that compiles the 28-year-old Star Tribune 100 report of the best-performing public companies in Minnesota, Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from over 140,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.

The results of the Star Tribune Top Workplaces are based on survey information collected by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention.

“At Werner Electric, we believe to create a great, engaged work environment, there must be a mutual commitment between the company and our employees, with an understanding that we’re all in the same boat.  What that means for us, is that everyone has a role in creating a great work environment, both the company and our employees.  Engagement is something that we measure once each year through the Top Workplaces survey, but it is something that we really LIVE year-round.

It’s an honor to be selected as a Top Workplace in Minnesota for the 10th consecutive year.  Werner’s employees are excited about our business, our customers and each other and that enthusiasm definitely showed through in our recent survey results,” offered Kara Morley, Director of Organizational Development.
