A company with locations all over Minnesota was just named in a new national survey about best places to work.

Shout-out to the gang over at Kwik Trip, which was just named One of the Best Places To Work For 2021 according to a new national survey. Which is quite an honor, when you consider that Kwik Trip is based over in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and really only has stores here in the Midwest (with most located in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa.)

But yet, Kwik Trip just came in at #79 on the Top 100 Best Places To Work survey for 2021 by Glassdoor. According to this Channel 3000 story, the Glassdoor survey is based on anonymous feedback from employees, which is even more impressive.

According to Glassdoor, Kwik Trip was rated 4.0 out of 5 stars, with 86 percent of employees saying they'd recommend working there to a friend. And 95 percent of employees in the survey said they approved of Kwik Trip's CEO, Don Zietlow.

"We take our culture at Kwik Trip very seriously and always want to be known as a great place to work," Kwik Trip CEO Don Zietlow said in the story.

I've been to the Kwik Trip corporate headquarters and campus over in La Crosse and can tell you firsthand how impressive it is. I'm not surprised it found its way onto the Glassdoor survey of Best Places to Work for 2021. Well done, Kwik Trip!
