ROCHESTER, Minn. — Mayo Clinic has been named one of the top 10 workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune as part of its 2011 Top 100 Workplaces list. The rankings are derived from an employee survey project by the Star Tribune and WorkplaceDynamics. The Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section was published in the Minneapolis newspaper on Sunday, June 19. Coverage including the full list can be found at Top Workplaces.
Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions about company leadership, communication, career opportunities, workplace environment, managerial skills, pay and benefits. The analysis included responses from over 60,500 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.
"It is an honor to be recognized as one of the leading work environments in the state of Minnesota," says John Noseworthy, M.D., president and CEO of Mayo Clinic. "We are fortunate for the knowledge, experience and dedication of all our employees."
The Star Tribune cited Mayo Clinic environmental initiatives including one of the largest solar panel projects in the state. Mayo Clinic installed hundreds of solar panels on the roof of one of its parking structures in Rochester. At their peak, the panels produce enough energy to power the entire building, with surplus used elsewhere on campus.
