StarTribune Top Workplaces 2012APPLE VALLEY, Minn. — Uponor was recently named one of Minneapolis Star Tribune’s Top Workplaces for 2012. The evaluation for the top workplaces program was based upon feedback from a survey given to all employees earlier this year.

“I know that I speak for all of us when I say that we are proud to be recognized by the Star Tribune as one of the top workplaces,” said Jon Mendel, vice president, human resources, Uponor. “A great workplace begins with great employees and Uponor North America employees are second to none.”

Of the 331 companies that participated in the survey, only 160 met the benchmark, for being a top employer. The Star Tribune article stated that Minnesota has more companies that meet its national benchmark than any of the other 30 markets the firm surveyed, which includes areas such as Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, and Atlanta.
