Professional development and employee engagement are central to our culture at York Solutions. When our employees have opportunities to learn, grow, and thrive, our entire team benefits.
Because these values are so fundamental to our company, we are thrilled to receive two recent awards: the Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces and Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For.
The 2018 Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces
The rankings of the Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces were determined entirely on employee opinions on engagement, organizational health, and satisfaction. More than 2,400 companies were invited to participate, and more than 71,000 employees from Minnesota public, private, and nonprofit organizations responded.
According to the Star Tribune, 31% of employees are engaged in their work on average, but among Top Workplaces employees, that number jumps to 58%.
“The companies in the Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota,” said Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith. “My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies.”
The 2018 Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For
Companies compete every year to be named one of Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For. Employees complete an extensive questionnaire about their company’s work environment and human resources practices, covering categories including: compensation and benefits, employee education and development, work-life balance, and diversity and inclusion.
“Only companies that distinguish themselves as having the most innovative and thoughtful human resources approach can receive this accolade,” said the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in a press release.
York Solutions received the award in the Small Business category, and will be honored on Friday, July 27, 2018 at Drury Lane Conference Center in Oakbrook Terrace.
“We are so proud of our employees and the culture they have built in our company,” said Richard Walker, York Solutions’ CEO. “We know we have the best people, and we strive to create a workplace they look forward to coming to every day. These two awards recognize that we’re on the right track.”
