Star Tribune names Uponor North America a 2016 Top Workplace
The Minneapolis Star Tribune named Uponor North America as one of the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota, ranking 19 on the large-size company list. This is the fourth year in a row the company has earned the Top 150 recognition.
Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health, and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from about 73,870 employees at Minnesota public, private, and nonprofit organizations.
"It's an honor to be named to the Minneapolis Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota for the fourth year in a row," says Bill Gray, president of Uponor North America. "I am proud and grateful to work with an incredibly dedicated and passionate group of people."
Gray says ensuring that Uponor is a great place to work is a core component of the company's strategy.
"We recognize we need a sustainable strategy where we can leverage our great culture and continue to seek areas where we can improve. Every single employee brings a unique set of skills and gifts that consistently contribute to our success and make Uponor a top workplace," he said.
Uponor CEO and President Jyri Luomakoski agrees.
"Regardless of industry and geography, people with passion can change the world for the better. When you have a top workplace, you attract and retain great people who make your workplace better, which makes your teams perform even higher — it builds confidence internally with employees and also builds confidence with our customers," said Luomakoski.
Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith says, "The companies in the Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota. My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies."
