CHASKA, MN — The City of Chaska has been named one of the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune.
Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health and satisfaction.
“Winning this award becomes a great recruitment tool,” Chaska City Administrator Matt Podhradsky said. “It gives people applying for jobs within our organization an instant snapshot of the type of workplace they can expect to find at the City.”
In its first year participating in the survey, the City of Chaska ranked 47th on the midsize company list, which covers companies with 150 to 499 employees.
The City had 152 employees eligible to take the survey, and 88% of those employees participated in the survey, which was 21% higher than the average company response. Podhradsky said that the responses provided strong data on what the City is doing well and what the City can continue to do to improve.
According to Podhradsky, the City is looking forward to participating in future Top Workplaces surveys to measure the impact different initiatives have within the City’s organization over time.
Over 2,000 companies were invited to participate in the Top Workplaces survey, and the analysis included responses from over 140,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.
Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith said, “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.”
