ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal has once again recognized Ecolab Inc. as one of the “Best Places to Work” in the Twin Cities area.
For the third year in a row, the publication named Ecolab one of the top-scoring businesses on its employee survey, which is conducted by Quantum Market Research and the Business Journal.
To be eligible for the project, companies had to have offices in the 11-county metro area and at least 10 full-time employees, or be based in Minnesota with at least 1,000 full-time employees. Nearly 250 companies participated in this year’s Best Places to Work contest, with 158 qualifying. To qualify, a certain percentage of employees had to complete an online survey, rating their employers’ work environment, people practices, personal growth and development opportunities, people in the organization, how things work on a day-to-day basis, and how the company embraces innovations/new ideas.
“We are proud to receive this recognition for the third consecutive year,” says Douglas Baker Jr., Ecolab chairman, president and chief executive officer. “We have a record of strong growth and global expansion, and as a sales and service business offering premium results for customers, our people are our key advantage. To attract and develop our team, we strive to create an environment where our associates can build careers that foster personal and professional growth while adding significant value to our company. Our mission — to make the world a cleaner, safer, healthier place, and embrace our culture of mutual respect and teamwork — is core to our company and one we seek to further cultivate as we continue to grow our business and expand our opportunities.”
