It’s a five-peat.
We’re honored to share that for the fifth consecutive year, Lloyd Companies has made the annual Prairie Family Business Magazine list of top 50 places to work in the northern Plains.
Employees nominate their organizations with anonymous satisfaction surveys, and the magazine uses them to choose the 50 best. Topics in the survey include employer benefits, workplace culture and employee morale. This year, there were more than 1,400 nominations.
“Each year, it seems we’re awed by the number of nominations we receive,” said Korrie Wenzel, publisher of Prairie Family Business Magazine. “This year, it has happened again. And after reading through the nominations, it is hard not to be impressed by the passionate comments made by so many employees at these great companies. It takes so much to be a great place to work. Obviously, it’s more than just pay or vacation time. This year’s winners are good examples of companies that are working hard to make work fulfilling. It’s nice to see that it’s happening in so many places in our region.”
At Lloyd Companies, we’ve made our employees and their experience at work a key area of focus – especially in recent years. We’ve invested in everything from wellness to training opportunities, team building and enhanced communication.
“What makes this award especially significant for us is that it comes from how our employees view us as a place to work. We are humbled to have made the list every year since Prairie Family Business Magazine started it,” Lloyd CEO Chris Thorkelson said. “We try to show our appreciation for our team and their commitment to us every day, and it’s gratifying to see they also view us as one of the best places to work in the region.”
We’d also like to give an extra congratulations to our fellow South Dakota companies that made the list: 3M in Brookings, Architecture Incorporated in Sioux Falls, Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, RCS Construction in Rapid City and Swier Law Firm in Avon.
