Editor's Notebook: Great Place To Work

DD earns regional workplace accolade -- again -- for the 11th year.


Kudos to the leadership and employees at Douglas Dynamics, the Milwaukee-based parent company to snow and ice industry brands such as Western, Fisher, and SnowEx.

For the 11th consecutive year The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has name the 70-year-old industry supplier a Top Workplace among medium-sized companies. According to DD, it is one of only 10 other local companies to be recognized annually since the newspaper started the program 11 years ago.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized as a Top Workplace for 11 consecutive years. Our people are the foundation of our culture and the driving force behind our Company’s growth and success,” said Linda Evans, vice president of human resources, in a statement. “We extend a huge ‘Thank You’ to our entire team of outstanding employees for their continual focus on integrity, teamwork and high performance, which has enabled us to create an ideal work environment for our employees that promotes engagement and personal growth.”  

Top Workplaces are nominated by employees and judged solely on employee surveys administered by Energage, a CultureTech specialist company that provides workplace improvement insights from an employee-centric approach. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “The program recognizes businesses and organizations in southeast Wisconsin that provide their employees with a great work environment, flexibility, advancement opportunities and other tools they need to succeed.”
