“This acknowledgement is about organizational health and employee engagement, so the biggest rewards are enjoyed every day by Uponorians working in a healthy and motivating environment,” says Jyri Luomakoski, Uponor president and CEO. “The team has not only improved the business, but also ensured that it is a place where people want to work, creating a sustainable base for continuous success.”

Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions about organizational health, job expectations and employee engagement. The analysis included responses from more than 64,300 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.

Uponor North America President Bill Gray adds that the Star Tribune’s Top 100 Workplace recognition is a great honor. “This truly is a great place to work. The passion and dedication that our employees bring to work every single day is inspiring. I'm proud to work beside such a talented group of people.”

The rankings in the Star Tribune Top 100 Workplaces are based on survey information collected by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Nearly 1,900 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.

Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith said, “The companies in the Star Tribune Top 100 Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota. My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies.”
