CHS, Kwik Trip Rank Among Minnesota's Top 100 Workplaces
ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Kwik Trip Inc. and CHS Inc. have been declared two of the top 100 places to work in Minnesota, according to the Star Tribune of Minneapolis. The newspaper's "Top Workplaces of 2012" ranking was released this Sunday and featured in a special section of the Star Tribune's online and print editions.
Kwik Trip, based in La Crosse, Wis., landed at No. 6 on the list, while CHS secured the No. 22 spot. Both are considered large companies.
CHS is owned by farmers and ranchers and is a provider of renewable energy, grain marketing services and crop nutrients. The company operates petroleum refineries/pipelines and manufactures, markets and distributes the Cenex brand of refined fuels, lubricants, propane and renewable energy products.
More than 1,360 Minnesota companies were invited to participate in this year's Top Workplaces ranking. The results were based on independent employee surveys orchestrated by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company that specializes in employee retention and engagement.
"We at CHS are especially honored to be named a Top Workplace, which reflects our strong culture of commitment to one another as employees and especially to the farmers and local cooperatives who own this company, and the goal we share of feeding a growing planet," stated Carl Casale, CHS' president and CEO.
About half of CHS' 1,500 employees in Minnesota, including its headquarters staff in Inver Grove Heights, Minn., participated in the employee surveys.
