Marco honored with top workplace award

Marco Inc. received the state’s top workplace awards and its highest employee satisfaction score in the wave of its largest employee growth in the company’s history.

The St. Cloud-based technology provider has added 310 employees in the past year.

The company has been named one of the Top 100 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune and Minnesota Business this summer and also received the 2013 Best Place to Work by the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal.

The results of Marco’s annual employee survey scored the company 4.62 in work satisfaction on a 5-point scale, up from 4.22 a year ago and the highest value in the survey’s 25-year history.

Marco employees also gave the company high scores in training and continuous improvement. Employees ranked the company’s employee ownership as most important to them. Marco’s stock value increased 44 percent last year.

“Being known as a great place to work has become a hallmark of our company and something we don’t take for granted,” Marco CEO Jeff Gau said.

“This was our 25th consecutive year measuring employee satisfaction, which includes everything from compensation and benefits to manager’s performance and trust in leadership. My primary role at Marco is to support a culture that people want to be a part of…”

The latest results from the 100-question survey affirm the independent analysis of three respected Minnesota organizations that earned Marco Top Workplace awards.
