ST. CLOUD, MN - Park Industries® has been named one of the 50 “Best Small & Medium Companies to Work for in America.” The list was announced on June 25, 2007, at the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM) 59th Annual Conference & Exposition in Las Vegas, NV.
This annual list, now in its fourth year, ranks the top 25 small and top 25 medium-sized companies in America that use smart people management strategies to develop successful organizations with highly productive and satisfied workforces. “We were ecstatic to hear that we were listed as one of the top 25 medium-sized companies,” said Pat Mullins, president at Park Industries®. “Over the years, we have been committed to developing and maintaining a culture that benefits both associates and our customers. We want to attract and retain the best associates, who will in turn, provide the best service and support to our customers.”
The organizations, ranging in size from 50 to 999 employees, were announced by SHRM and selected and ranked by the Great Place to Work® Institute (GPTW). The results were based on a randomly distributed employee opinion survey. Each company evaluated was given a score based on employees’ responses to a detailed questionnaire about the organizations’ workplace cultures.
“It’s a great feeling to know that associates enjoy working at Park Industries®, which is evident in our associate retention rate of nearly 99%,” said Larry Norvell, Park Industries’® vice president of human resources.
“Small and medium-sized companies make up the majority of the American economy and workforce,” said SHRM President and CEO, Susan R. Meisinger, SPHR. “These winning organizations demonstrate that making effective use of their workforce is key to their success, and their accomplishments deserve recognition.”
