It’s always nice to be recognized for your work, and at Malco we’ve won our share of awards—it’s nice to be honored and wonderful to hear that people like our products. We’ve always been proud of our staff here at Malco, we have a lot of hard-working folks who take great pride in their work. With that in mind, we were overjoyed to receive another great honor recently—we were named one of the Top Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. (A complete list of companies selected was published in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section on Sunday, June 24.)
Produced by the same team that compiles the Star Tribune 100 report of the best-performing public companies in Minnesota, Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from over 71,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.
“We are grateful to our employee owners and the Star Tribune for this recognition,” said Mardon Quandt, Malco President and CEO. “To be named a Top Workplace in the state of Minnesota is testimony to our employee-ownership culture, and our commitment to creating a safe, healthy and engaging work environment for Malco employees.”
Results for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces are based on survey information collected by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Over 2,400 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.
“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 and CEO Michael J. Klingensmith. “My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies.”
Malco was also recently recognized with a 2018 Governor’s Safety Award by the Minnesota Safety Council for its commitment to creating a safe and healthy work environment for its employee-owners. Once again, we here at Malco appreciate the recognition and are proud of these awards, but it’s always customer satisfaction that drives us. More than anything else, we appreciate doing business with all of our customers and look forward to our continued relationship in the coming years. We know that any success or recognition we receive is a direct reflection of our great customers!
