Employees at Madison-area businesses – 11,315 people – had their say in a poll that determined the Wisconsin State Journal’s first ranking of the best workplaces for 2019.
When these employees spoke, they explained what makes their workplace special: caring bosses, superior benefits, a culture of appreciation and respect, strong communication, a healthy and well-balanced work-life balance. Moreover.
The results identify companies that care about their employees and that deploy innovative ways to shape workplaces, convey their missions, encourage high performance and enhance their teams.
“Top Workplaces strives to identify and recognize Madison area employers who offer attractive workplaces that invest in their employees and encourage them to thrive and grow,” said Tom Wiley, Wisconsin State editor Newspaper. “They create strong corporate cultures that help them recruit and retain talented employees. “
The project is the result of a partnership between the Wisconsin State Journal and Energage, an employee engagement and workplace improvement research firm based in Exton, Pennsylvania. Rankings are based on scientifically sound feedback from employees of participating organizations.
“Top Workplaces leaders see the competitive advantage of creating a company culture where employees are highly engaged. And they make culture a strategic priority, day after day, ”said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage.
