Outland Energy Services, a Minnesota-based provider of operations and maintenance services to the North American wind power industry, has been recognized by the Minneapolis Star Tribune as one of the top workplaces in the state.
This is the first year that Outland was nominated, and the company was ranked among the top 140 midsize companies in the survey. The ranking program is administered by Workplace Dynamics and based on survey feedback from Outland employees.
The accreditation recognizes Outland as a workplace that rewards individual achievement and promotes personal development, according to the company. Employees were surveyed about several topics, including practices and policies that make these companies the top places to work. The companies were ranked based on leadership, compensation, training, workplace flexibility and diversity.
‘Our goals are to make each employee feel valued, respected, safe in their work environment, to provide opportunities for career growth and to actively participate in the communities where we live and work,’ says Deb VanDerostyne, director of human resources and risk management at Outland.
