Star Tribune names STAR Services to Top Workplaces 2012
STAR Services has been named one of the Top Workplaces in Minnesota based on an employee-based survey project from the Star Tribune. The Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section was published in the Star Tribune on Sunday, June 17. The report can also be found at StarTribune.com/topworkplaces2012. Produced by the same team that compiles the 21-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 about company leadership, communication, career opportunities, workplace environment, managerial skills, pay and benefits. The analysis included responses from nearly 71,200 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations. The results of the Star Tribune Top Workplaces are based on survey information collected by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith said, “The companies in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota. My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies.” To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Over 1,360 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.
