"We are striving to create something special here at Uponor; our employees' feedback is vital in helping us to continue this journey."

Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota, based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from more than 58,600 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.
