Southeast Minnesota Workforce Development Inc. is again seeking to recognize the Best Places to Work in southeast Minnesota.

“Many great employers in our area have used this as a tool to attract and retain valuable talent for their organization,” said Jinny Rietmann, executive director, Workforce Development Inc. “WDI and the Workforce Development boards of southeast Minnesota and Winona want to recognize and promote our best employers and provide them with valuable data to highlight their strengths as well as to show areas that they can continue to grow.”

Any local organization seeking to participate in the Best Places to Work survey will be asked to complete a 40 question, online survey. Personnel Dynamics Consulting Group of Florida will collect the information, analyze the data and provide the results. Every organization participating in the survey will receive a free personalized and confidential report detailing their results of the survey and identifying best practices in the areas of benefits, training
and development, paid time off, performance management programs, growth, advancement and many more. The report is free for every organization that participates in the survey; there is no cost to participate.
