IC System was named one of Minnesota’s top places to work by the Minneapolis Star Tribune! The Star Tribune made the 2017 Top Workplace announcement on June 21, having based their results on an employee feedback survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company that specializes in employee engagement and retention.
Founded in 1938, IC System is a collection agency in its third generation of family ownership. President and CEO John Erickson Jr. said, “I am extremely proud that my family’s company was named a Top Workplace by the Star Tribune. We endeavor every day to make IC System a great place to work, to make every employee feel like a member of a family. Our first Core Value is People, treating them with dignity and respect. It’s nice to be recognized as a top place to work, but the real satisfaction comes from knowing we are providing a good workplace for our people.”
Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota through employee opinions. The survey evaluates employee feedback about workplace culture, the levels of employee engagement, organizational health, and overall satisfaction. To complete the statewide survey, WorkplaceDynamics collected responses from over 69,000 employees at 2,000 public, private, and nonprofit organizations in Minnesota. More than 2,000 companies in the state took part, and the results were based purely on employee responses.
To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces award, companies must have more than 50 current employees in Minnesota. More than 375 employees at IC System’s home office in St. Paul were eligible to participate in the survey.
Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith said, “The companies in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota. My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies.”
IC System is thrilled to be one of the companies that met the national standards, but we are even more thrilled and proud to have employees who love where they work—and demonstrate that on the job every day!
