League of Minnesota Cities Named 2018 Top Workplace by Star Tribune

The League of Minnesota Cities has been named one of the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune for the fifth consecutive year. The Top Workplaces special section was published in the Star Tribune on June 24 and can also be accessed online.

The Top Workplaces list recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota, based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health, and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from more than 71,000 employees at Minnesota public, private, and nonprofit organizations.

Rankings were based on survey information collected by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses. The League was ranked 26th on the list of small companies.

LMC Executive Director David Unmacht said he was proud to hear that for the fifth year in a row the League is on the Star Tribune’s list of best employers to work for. “What makes this distinction special is that it’s based on what our employees think about working here,” Unmacht said. “The League’s board and leadership have placed a high value on creating a supportive workplace culture where we all can thrive. Our engaged and energetic staff, as well as our member cities who inspire our commitment, help to make this a great place to work.”

To be eligible for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company or organization must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Over 2,400 companies were invited to participate.
