MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mortenson Construction today announced that it has been named one of America's Top Workplaces by WorkplaceDynamics. Mortenson is one of the top 150 companies to work for (ranked #40) nationwide among 872 leading organizations with more than 1,000 employees according to the survey.
The National Top Workplaces list was determined solely by feedback gathered through an objective employee survey. The survey was conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, the leading on-demand employee survey provider, in conjunction with 30 leading regional newspapers. Mortenson participated in the Minneapolis Star Tribune's Top Workplaces 2012 program.
The survey uses a proprietary set of 22 questions to rank companies. The survey data showed that employees most want to work at companies with high levels of organizational health. Companies that set a clear direction for their future; execute well; and bring real meaning to work are the healthiest.
"Mortenson Construction's mission to deliver an exceptional customer experience starts with our team members," said Rick Clevette, vice president of human resources. "This award is further validation of the exceptional people and teams we have here at the company. It is an honor to be recognized on this national list."
Several Mortenson offices have received similar honors regionally, including Chicago's "101 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For"; Denver Business Journal's "Best Places to Work"; Milwaukee Business Journals' "Top Milwaukee Workplace"; Minneapolis Star Tribune's "Top Workplaces"; Phoenix Business Journal's "Best Places to Work"; and Puget Sound Business Journal's "Washington's Best Workplaces."
