Minnesota Business Magazine announces 2015 100 Best Companies to Work For in Minnesota

Selected companies, to be honored at an awards ceremony in June, excel in employee well being.

On March 24th, Minnesota Business magazine released the 2015 list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For in the state. Earlier this year, an independent research firm distributed an online employee satisfaction survey to all companies who had indicated their desire to participate. The survey determined which companies in Minnesota excel in the areas of work environment, employee benefits, and overall employee happiness. Following survey completion, the research firm then tabulated each company’s results. The top 100 scoring companies were selected as a result of their scores. Businesses that made the list in previous years have reported a tremendous boost in being able to recruit key new employees.


From Paul Taunton CEO at BIG.

“I take great pride in being part of an organization as dynamic as Business Impact Group and at being recognized as one of the 100 Best Companies to work for by Minnesota Business Magazine. What I personally love about this award is that it has nothing to do with top line sales, how many boxes or kits we shipped, or how many customers we have. It’s 100% about the people, the culture, the environment, the respect we have for each other, and most importantly how we laugh with and enjoy our coworkers. Here is one thing I know for sure, you can implement all kinds of amazing programs and policies to differentiate your business, but at the end of the day it’s all about the people.

I feel blessed and grateful to be recognized for this award but even more so to be part of an organization that has collectively decided to make BIG both rewarding for our clients and our employees. I am also very excited to see a number of our business partners on this list as well, including Chuck & Don’s, Loffler Companies and Starkey Hearing Technologies.”

On June 4, Minnesota Business magazine will host the 100 Best Companies to Work For Awards at the Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel. The event honors Minnesota companies that set the standard for employee well being. Honorees will be invited to attend the event, with a night of drinks, dinner, and an awards ceremony. Each company will also be featured in the June issue of Minnesota Business magazine.
