State College, PA (Vocus) October 3, 2007
The Wall Street Journal has named Minitab, the leading provider of software and services for quality improvement and statistics education, as one of 35 finalists in its first annual ranking of Top Small Workplaces in North America.
In collaboration with Winning Workplaces, a non-profit consulting company, the news organization identified Minitab as a business that fosters teamwork and innovation while also providing exceptional benefits and opportunities for professional growth.
"The Wall Street Journal collected more than 800 nominations, so it’s a genuine honor to be among the 35 finalists for the Winning Workplace award," says Todd Hershbine, human resources and administrative services executive.
"Minitab has always believed our employees are our greatest asset and that our primary responsibility is to create a workplace in which they can excel. This distinction affirms both our approach to nurturing personnel and the passion and creativity our employees give back when we do.”
As evidence that Minitab is a company in which employees thrive, the Journal and Winning Workplaces noted that every Minitab manager has been promoted from within, and that employees receive a generous 401(k) plan and insurance package, along with access to a swimming pool, weight room, game room, personal trainers and an on-site theater.
In addition to being selected as a Winning Workplace finalist, Minitab was also honored for outstanding customer service this year. Frost & Sullivan, the world’s leading growth consulting company, named Minitab the recipient of its 2007 Customer Value Leadership of the Year Award.
"We're very proud to be recognized nationally for our approach to the two most important parts of our business—our customers, and our employees," Hershbine says. "Our success at providing value to customers is fueling our company’s growth, and hopefully our success at nurturing our employees will help us recruit and retain the high quality personnel we need to serve them."
