Energage has partnered with the Star Tribune for more than a decade to produce a Top Workplaces list for Minnesota. For the first time, it has produced a national list drawing from companies that made the list here and in more than 45 other markets, plus any other companies that wanted to participate.

Thirty-eight companies from Minnesota made the national list. Arctic Wolf Networks was ranked No. 3 in the category of businesses with 150 to 499 employees.

Like for the regional Top Workplaces lists, winners are chosen based on the feedback employees gave in a survey. The 24-question survey by Energage covers topics from the company's values and leadership to communication and how engaged employees feel toward their workplaces.

The Top Workplaces designation, according to Energage, recognizes companies that "prioritize a people-centered culture."

"When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward," said Eric Rubino, chief executive of Philadelphia-based Energage.

"Top Workplaces draws on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business."

The top-ranked companies are: Ohio-based Union Home Mortgage Corp. in the 1,000 to 2,499-employee category; Illinois-based Assurance in the 500 to 999-employee category; and Illinois' Cooperative Association for Special Education in the 150 to 499-employee category.

National rankings

Companies on the national list that are in Minnesota or have appeared on Star Tribune's Top Workplaces list in the past because their locations in the state participated in the survey.
