CRC Named One of Five Best Places to Work in Southeast Minnesota
Austin, Minn. – Cooperative Response Center, Inc. (CRC) is proud to announce it was one of five area recipients recently honored with the Best Places to Work in Southeast Minnesota recognition from Workforce Development, Inc. Overall, 15 local companies were recognized as “best workplaces” in either the small (100 employees or less), mid-size (101 – 400 employees), or large (over 400 employees) categories at a banquet held on Thursday, April 25, in Rochester, Minn.
Nancy Morrison, CRC’s Vice President of Human Resource Development, notes CRC’s management team is very pleased that the company has been given this prestigious distinction.
“With our goal of being an “employer of choice,” this recognition takes us one step closer to achieving this objective,” said Morrison. “Being recognized as a great place to work is a collective effort. Not only were we identified for having outstanding benefits, pay, and recognition programs; it is our dedication to continuous learning that set us apart. All employees contribute to this effort and we were proud to accept this award on their behalf.”
The recipients of the “Best Places to Work” program were part of a commissioned study by Workforce Development, Inc. Each company that participated in the study completed a 40-question survey that allowed their employment practices to be analyzed by the consulting firm Personnel Dynamics Consulting of Florida. The data measured included such parameters such as turnover, rate of growth, promotion rates, employee evaluations and feedback, percentage of employee injuries, diversity of management, benefits offered, training expenditures, paid days off, and increase in pay.
