Posted on

Dakota Wesleyan University has been named to the Prairie Business magazine’s list of 50 Best Places to Work for 2021. The list was announced in September. 

Employees throughout the region nominated their companies, highlighting some of the reasons they believe make their place of business a great place to work. Among the topics were workplace culture, opportunities for employee growth, teamwork and individual responsibility, and employee morale, among others.

In all, Prairie Business received more than 1,500 nominations.

“It’s a sampling that shows people are excited about their jobs and the companies that provide them. That’s good news not only for the businesses that have been nominated, but it’s great news for all of the region’s residents, consumers and managers alike,” said Prairie Business Editor Andrew Weeks. 

“If people feel appreciated and are happy in their jobs, they are more productive. If they feel appreciated and valued, they are more apt to go the extra mile. There is less turnover and more innovation. And the end result of that is a better company.

“There are a lot of great companies in this region.” 

This year’s 50 Best are highlighted in the September issue of the magazine, which also is available as an e-edition at prairiebusinessmagazine.com.
