Prairie Business magazine announces 50 Best Places to Work

GRAND FORKS, N.D. — The September issue of Prairie Business will celebrate the 50 Best Places to Work in the northern Plains. Companies were nominated through an anonymous employee survey that outlined work environment, employee benefits and employee happiness. Consideration was also given to the number of nominations received per company. The 50 businesses will be honored in the magazine, which is available to view here.

“Employees in the companies nominated for this list wait eagerly to find out if their workplace has been chosen,” says Lisa Gibson, editor of Prairie Business. “It’s a point of pride for our winners because being nominated as a great place to work by actual employees on all levels of hierarchy is a testament to really being a great company. You can’t claim to be a great place to work unless the employees who actually work for you agree.”

Now in the third year of conducting the Best Places to Work contest, Prairie Business received nearly 950 surveys. “We’re happy to present this year’s winners and offer our congratulations to them all,” Gibson says.
