Employee Survey Responses Put Tripp Lite in Chicago's Top 100 Workplaces.


Senior management appreciates each individual's contributions to the company's success, regardless of that person's department or title.

Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection solutions, has been named to the Chicago Tribune's 2010 list of Top Workplaces in the Chicago area. This annual honor ranks employers based on input from employees.

The list of 100 top workplaces is categorized by company size (fewer than 250 employees, 250-999 employees and 1,000 and more employees). In 2010, employees of 1,362 companies were invited to complete a survey addressing their feelings about their workplaces, centering on such issues as company direction, working conditions and execution of company procedures.

Comments from Tripp Lite's employees included:

-- "Senior management appreciates each individual’s contributions to the company’s success, regardless of that person’s department or title."
-- "I love my job because I am given the freedom to make immediate decisions and am backed up by upper management when I do so."
-- "It truly makes a difference when a company is reliable, understanding and committed to prosperity."

"Tripp Lite has a long history of providing a supportive, collaborative, upbeat work environment," said Amy Grubisic, Director of Human Resources. "We nurture each person's skills and strengths, encourage promotion from within and include every employee in celebrations of the company's successes. We are honored to be named in the Tribune's 2010 Top Workplaces list, especially because the judges were our employees."
