We were recently recognized by Workforce Development Inc. with the title of “Best Places to Work in Southeast MN”, for the sixth-straight year.
The purpose of the program is to recognize some of the best employers in our 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 of Personnel Dynamics Consulting of Florida. The data was measured on 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.
“Finding out we received this recognition for the 6th straight year was fantastic news, especially after another year of challenges,” states Custom Alarm CEO Melissa Brinkman. “I continue to be extremely proud of the team here at Custom Alarm and can’t say enough great things about them and feel privileged to work alongside them every day. It is important to have a healthy culture and provide a positive work environment to foster and encourage great teamwork. After another year of working through many unknowns we grew even stronger together and are facing the challenges head on as a team. Receiving this award is something I continue to be proud of and humbled by and consider myself fortunate to be named as one of the ‘Best Places to Work’ and it is thanks to the team here who I strive to ensure they want to come to work and take care of our customers and each other every day.”
Custom Alarm excelled again in many areas throughout the 40-question survey, which led them to receiving this great honor. Some areas where Custom Alarm excelled was in population growth of the company, in the top 20% of companies with employee growth and lowest turnover.
