Arvig Named One of Prairie Business Magazine’s 50 Best Places to Work

​Arvig Named One of Prairie Business Magazine’s 50 Best Places to Work
 
PERHAM, MINN., AUG. 31, 2017—Arvig is excited to announce it has been named one of Prairie Business magazine’s 50 Best Places to Work in the northern Plains. Arvig will be featured in the September issue of the magazine.

Earlier this year, employees nominated their companies by submitting an anonymous employee-satisfaction survey, and Prairie Business used the survey results in selecting the 50 Best.

“This recognition is an honor because it comes directly from our employees, who took the time and effort to nominate our company for this award,” said David Arvig, Chief Operating Officer/Vice President at Arvig. “Our employees—in my opinion—are the best around, and this recognition is a reflection of their hard work and commitment to our company and our customers. Thanks to all who made it happen.”

The survey sought input on each employer’s benefits, workplace culture and employee morale, among other factors. And employees responded. Prairie Business received more than 1,000 nominations from employees from around the region, said Tom Dennis, Prairie Business editor.

“The 50 Best companies clearly recognize employee satisfaction as one of the keys to productivity and profitability,” Dennis said. “That comes through in the surveys over and over again. We all know how hard we’ll work to satisfy a good manager. Turns out people feel the same way about the companies they work for -- and when an employer goes the extra mile for its workforce, the workers go all out to return the favor.”

Prairie Business is proud to present the results of the contest, which now is in its fourth year. “We congratulate all of the winning companies, and we thank the employees who responded so enthusiastically to our survey,” Dennis said.
The 50 Best winners will be honored in the magazine, which also will be available on the web at prairiebusinessmagazine.com.
