Minneapolis, MN (July 5, 2016) – Bonfe has been named one of the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. The Top Workplaces is an annual report the Star Tribune compiles in partnership with WorkingDynamics, a company that specializes in employee engagement and organizational health research. The results of the Top Workplaces survey were published in the Star Tribune in print and online on Sunday, June 26.
The Star Tribune’s Top 150 Workplaces recognizes employers in Minnesota that have achieved high employee satisfaction and are industry leaders in providing benefits, programs, and incentives to attract and retain top talent. Factors measured include compensation and benefits, work/life balance, organizational leadership and values, employee engagement, and effectiveness at working toward company goals.
To make the list, a company must first be nominated by its employees. Once the company accepts the nomination, employees are asked to complete a survey. This year, 1,556 companies around Minnesota were invited to participate in the survey, with responses coming in from over 73,000 employees across the state. Only the top 150 employers made the final list.
The top 150 workplaces were organized into small, midsize, and large employers and then ranked within their group. Bonfe came in at #40 on the small company list, out of 70.
Survey responses from Bonfe employees highlighted our supportive company culture and opportunities for collaboration and personal growth.
“I am empowered to make decisions that I feel are the right ones, and if I’m wrong, Bonfe examines the mistake as a learning experience,” one employee said.
Another stated that they value “the opportunity to work your way up and build a career instead of just working a ‘job.’”
According to WorkingDynamics CEO Doug Claffey, “Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to [employees] is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.”
This echoes a Bonfe employee’s statement that they appreciate “the freedom we have to make changes and improve the company as we see fit.”
Bonfe also received special mention in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces feature for our innovative recruiting campaign. For a limited time, we’re offering a monthly stipend for plumber referrals. If your candidate is hired, you’ll receive a $100 check every month that they remain employed with us.
We want to extend a big thank you to all of our hard-working employees! Bonfe wouldn’t be a Top Workplace without you.
