“Uponor is honored to be a recipient of the Employer of Excellence award,” says Kara Hayft, vice president of Uponor Human Resources. “Our recognition and participation in the survey provided us with a new level of self-awareness and also more visibility among our industry peers and community. Despite our growth, we’ve managed to preserve our culture, which is an attraction piece for us in this labor market. The opportunity to be recognized for our success in this area is something that we’re proud of.”
“As low unemployment rates continue to challenge employers to create ways to attract and retain employees in Minnesota, our organization elevates the efforts of area employers by providing an overview of employment data, trends and best practices to maintain an engaged workforce,” says Mark Lofthus, chair of the Workforce Development Board Business Services Committee and co-chair of the Workforce Summit Planning Committee.
“In addition, each year, we enjoy recognizing employers in the two-county area with our awards program. In total, 10 employers in Dakota and Scott counties were honored this year.”
