Matrix Home Health Care Specialists has been named one of the Top 100 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune for the second year in a row. The Top Workplaces was published by the Star Tribune on June 13, 2015. The report can also be found at http://www.startribune.com/jobs/topworkplaces.
In a survey by WorkplaceDynamics, the research firm that partners with the Star Tribune to compile the Top Workplaces list, Minnesota ranked first among 45 regions surveyed on workplace satisfaction. The survey focused on components of well-being, like relationships, positive feelings and a sense of meaning.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “To be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health.”
This year, 343 companies participated in the Star Tribune’s survey, a bump of almost 10 percent over last year. Those companies had 130,277 employees, and of about 105,000 who received surveys, 69,183 returned them.
Matrix Home Health Care Specialists ranked 33rd on the small company list.
“Our Care and Administrative teams offer the Continuum of Care Advantage and have brought quality of life, comfort, rehabilitation and dignity to clients everywhere throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding areas. Working with a team approach that builds on each individual’s strengths and fosters continued professional growth and learning benefits our clients with excellent quality care.”
“The results prove once again that what’s most important to employees is belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together,” Claffey said.
To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. This year 2,107 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses. There was no charge to companies or employees, and they weren’t compensated.
