Workforce Development, Inc. recently named Tri-County Electric Cooperative (TEC) as a 2015 Best Place to Work in Southeast Minnesota.

The Best Places to Work awards program is a study commissioned by Workforce Development, Inc. The purpose is to recognize some of the best employers in the local area and provide vital information to companies about the practices they use to attract and retain employees. Each company participating was required to complete a 40-question survey that allowed their employment practices to be analyzed by the consulting firm, Personnel Dynamics Consulting, of Fla.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized as a best place to work,” says Brian Krambeer, TEC’s president and CEO. “Our board of directors has set policies that help us attain and retain employees. It is our members who truly benefit from this because it is the attitudes of the employees and how they work together to provide excellent service to our members that make this cooperative a great place to work.”

The data was measured on such parameters as: turnover, rate of growth, promotion rates, employee evaluations and feedback, percentage of employee injured, diversity of management, benefits offered, training expenditures, paid days off, and increase in pay.
