IC System Recognized as Top Workplace
C System, an ACA International member company in St. Paul, was recently named
one of Minnesota's top places to work by the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
The Star Tribune issued the 2017 Top Workplace announcement on June
21, having based its results on an employee feedback survey conducted by
WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company that specializes in employee
engagement and retention.
"I am extremely proud that my family's company was named a Top Workplace by
the Star Tribune. We endeavor every day to make IC System a great place to work, to
make every employee feel like a member of a family," said President and CEO John
Erickson Jr. "Our first core value is people, treating them with dignity and respect.
It's nice to be recognized as a top place to work, but the real satisfaction comes from
knowing we are providing a good workplace for our people."
Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota through
employee opinions. The survey evaluates employee feedback about workplace culture,
the levels of employee engagement, organizational health and overall satisfaction. To
complete the statewide survey, WorkplaceDynamics collected responses from more than
69,000 employees at 2,000 public, private and nonprofit organizations in Minnesota.
"The companies in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces deserve high praise for
creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota," said Star
Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith.
