STATE COLLEGE, PA-Minitab Inc., developer of statistical and process improvement software, has been named one of the 25 Best Companies to Work for in America in the small business category. This annual list, now in its sixth year, ranks the top 25 small- and medium-sized companies in America that use smart people-management strategies to develop successful organizations with highly productive and satisfied workforces.
The list was announced before an audience of more than 15,000 at the Society for Human Resource Management’s 61st Annual Conference and Exposition in New Orleans.
Honorees were selected and ranked by the Great Place to Work Institute based on a randomly distributed employee opinion survey. Each company was given a score based on employees’ responses to a detailed questionnaire about the organization’s workplace cultures.
“All of us at Minitab are both gratified and humbled to be selected for this honor out of all of the outstanding companies that were considered,” says Todd Hershbine, Minitab’s human resources and administrative services executive. “From our earliest days, Minitab’s philosophy has been that when you combine challenging and meaningful work with a supportive environment, people succeed and thrive.
“Our success in the market over the years is a testament to the passion and dedication of our employees. This award is a confirmation and validation of Minitab’s employee-focused corporate culture-a culture we plan to preserve and evolve,” says Hershbine.
