Outsell Named a 2021 Top Workplace by Star Tribune
Minneapolis, Minn. — Outsell has been named one of the Top Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. Outsell’s Associate engagement grew to 74 percent in 2021, which is up from 57 percent in 2019.
We are proud to be recognized as a top workplace in Minnesota, and even prouder that our Associates think so too,” said Mike Wethington, Founder & CEO at Outsell. “We have seven core values at Outsell, Customer, Quality, Caring, Teamwork, Innovation, Initiative, and Integrity. All Associates at Outsell embody these values every day.”
The results of the Star Tribune Top Workplaces are based on survey information collected by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. Outsell associates reported improvement in all categories over the past years, with the biggest improvements in engagement being “Outsell is going in the right direction” and “interdepartmental collaboration.”
To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Nearly 3,000 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses. Produced by the same team that compiles the 30-year-old Star Tribune 100 report of the best-performing public companies in Minnesota, Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from over 76,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.
A complete list of those selected is available at StarTribune.com/topworkplaces2021 and will also be published in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section on Sunday, June 20.
