CRC Named One of the ‘Best Places to Work in Southeast Minnesota’ for Seventh Consecutive Year
CRC is pleased once again to announce that its Austin, Minnesota, office has been recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Southeast Minnesota by Workforce Development, Inc. This is CRC’s seventh consecutive year receiving the honor.
Recently twelve local companies were recognized as “best workplaces” in either small- (under 75 employees), medium- (75 – 200 employees), or large- (over 200 employees) sized categories at a banquet held on Thursday, April 25, in Rochester, Minnesota.
Nancy Morrison, CRC’s vice president of human resource development, says the Best Places to Work program has been a good tool to encourage innovative ideas on how to best attract, hire, and retain quality employees.
“The program seems increasingly competitive each year as companies in the southeastern Minnesota area continue to raise the bar,” she said. “We see new recipients each year that challenge the rest of us to become even more competitive in the area of employee relations, benefits, and investment in training.”
Each company that participated in the program was required to complete a 40-question survey that allowed their employment practices to be analyzed by Personnel Dynamics Consulting, a Florida-based consulting firm. Some of the attributes that have made CRC a stand out for this honor are its employee benefit program, employee growth, percentage of employees promoted, bonus program, annual increases in pay, and its focus on training and wellness.
