LMC Named 2017 Top Workplace

The League of Minnesota Cities (LMC) has been named one of the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune for the fourth year in a row. The Top Workplaces special section was published in the Star Tribune on June 25 and can also be accessed online. The League was ranked fifth on the small employer list, jumping up 11 spots from last year.

The Top Workplaces list recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota, based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health, and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from over 69,000 employees at Minnesota public, private, and nonprofit organizations.

Rankings were based on survey information collected by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.

LMC Executive Director David Unmacht said the League was proud to be identified on the list of the Star Tribune’s best employers to work for. “And no doubt, ranking as the fifth-best is very special,” Unmacht said. “The credit goes to the League Board and our staff for the value and importance they place on our workplace and our culture.”

To be eligible for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company or organization must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Over 2,000 companies were invited to participate.
