Three businesses earn Workplace Excellence Awards

Oct. 5, 2018

The Sioux Empire Society of Human Resource Management has announced its annual winners of the Workplace Excellence Awards, recognizing companies that go above and beyond for their employees and community.

Award winners are determined by their methods of communication, employee-focused and family-friendly practices, employee recognition and retention strategies, employee growth and educational opportunities, as well as leadership and management practices in engaging employees.

In the small category, honoring companies with 100 or fewer employees, nominations were received for the following companies:

  • Click Rain
  • Scherer Inc.
  • Missouri River Valley
  • Van Buskirk Cos.
  • RMS Roller Grinder
  • Woods, Fuller, Shultz & Smith PC

Winner: Woods Fuller

Woods Fuller was recognized for its community involvement, dedicating not only the financial resources, but also the option for staff to elect additional hours of paid time off to volunteer in their favorite organization. The firm recognizes staff for their contributions both daily and annually through programs such as the SMA program, the Staff Service Award program and their annual weeklong celebration and recognition of administrative assistants.

In the medium-sized category, for businesses with 100 to 500 employees, nominations were received for the following companies:

  • Carsforsale.com
  • Five Star Call Centers
  • Journey Group
  • RENEW Energy Maintenance
  • Weisser Distributing

Winner: Weisser Distributing

Weisser Distributing built its culture around seven core values: integrity, problem-solving, autonomous, team-oriented, visionary, accountable and people-first, and that’s what defines Weisser employees. Because of these seven values, Weisser has rocketed into four consecutive years on the Inc. 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. and has been one of the fastest-growing companies in the state for multiple years. Weisser’s not-so-secret secret is to make sure that no matter what, “people-first” is how they think, which is why their culture has been at the forefront of every stepping stone in growth.

For the final category, representing companies with 500 or more employees, nominations were received for the following companies:

  • Esurance
  • Poet

Winner: Poet

Poet was selected for believing in the power of its people, focusing on developing team members and providing them with the opportunity to be leaders in all aspects of their life; at work, home and in the community.
