Widseth Smith Nolting Named Among 50 Best Places to Work

Widseth Smith Nolting

The employee satisfaction-driven “50 Best Places to Work” list has a new entry for 2019—Widseth Smith Nolting has made its first appearance on the list. In its fifth year, the annual competition is sponsored by Prairie Business Magazine.

Through a competitive nomination process, Prairie Business Magazine recognizes the top 50 places to work in their coverage area—North Dakota, South Dakota, and western Minnesota. Nominations are made by employees, which ensures that it is their perspective being scrutinized for an employer’s worthiness of this honor.

WSN’s employees organized a concerted response to this year’s call for nominations in recognition of initiatives the firm has been pursuing to increase employee engagement, recognize exceptional efforts in the workplace, and facilitate growth, both in terms of individuals’ professional growth and that of the company.

Nominations were judged on employees’ responses to three questions:

  • Why should this company be one of Prairie Business’s 50 Best Places to Work?
  • What culture initiatives or benefits set this company apart from the rest?
  • Does working for this company reward you with job satisfaction and opportunities to learn and grow?

According to a Prairie Business news release, more than 1,400 employees from around the region submitted nominations. The release quoted publisher Korrie Wenzel as saying, “It takes so much to be a great place to work... This year’s winners are good examples of companies that are working hard to make work fulfilling.”

WSN is proud to be among such good company.
