Prairie Business invites nominations for 50 Best Places to Work 2018

GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- Prairie Business magazine is proud to invite nominations for "50 Best Places to Work," the annual contest that celebrates the best places to work on the northern Plains. 

For the fifth year in a row, Prairie Business will accept nominations from employees and, in the September issue, will name the top 50 workplaces. 

Employers will be nominated through an anonymous employee survey (available below) that outlines work environment, employee benefits and employee morale. The number of nominations received per organization will also be considered. 

"With the workforce shortage, every employer in our region has 'being a great place to work' at the top of mind," said Tom Dennis, editor of Prairie Business.

"I've been so impressed with how seriously employers are taking this and how innovative they're being in helping employees thrive. This contest is a great chance to highlight those achievements, and the fact that the nominations will come from employees shows how strongly the workforce cares about this, too."

The contest is open to companies and other organizations in the magazine’s readership area, which includes North and South Dakota as well as western Minnesota. The nomination form is available here.  Nominations will be accepted throughout the month of June and will close on Sunday, July 8. Questions?
