News Release: MITGI is recognized as one of the Top Workplaces in MN.

HUTCHINSON, MN – June 29, 2016

Midwest Industrial Tool Grinding, Inc. (MITGI) has been recognized as one of the Top Workplaces in Minnesota by the Minneapolis Star Tribune.  This is the second time that MITGI has been the recipient of the award.  The 150 Top Workplaces are selected based solely on feedback from an employee satisfaction survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics.  The survey measures factors that impact job satisfaction such as career opportunities, workplace culture, and employee engagement.

“We’re very proud to have won the Top Workplace award for the second year in a row,” explains Eric Lipke, MITGI President.  “Companies are selected for this award based on employee feedback, which means that our team enjoys the challenging work, company culture, and are glad to work here.  We credit our employees for the excellent work they do to serve our customers, and for making MITGI a great place to go each day.”

To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota.  Over 1,555 companies were invited to participate.  The Top Workplaces special section was published in the Star Tribune on Sunday, June 26. More information is available at: www.StarTribune.com/topworkplaces2016

Located in Hutchinson, MN, MITGI manufactures and markets standard and custom cutting tools. Combining innovation with quality and repeatability, MITGI tools have become the product of choice in many R&D departments and manufacturing facilities that serve the medical, automotive, computer, and aerospace industries. MITGI is the recipient of the Image Award (2014 and 2015, Minnesota Business Magazine Manufacturing Award), 100 Best Companies to Work for Award (2015, Minnesota Business Magazine), and Top 150 Workplaces Award (2015 and 2016, Star Tribune).

Love where you live

I have asked a chamber member, Leadership Design Team Member, Chamber volunteer, to let me use her blog for the article this month. When I first told Karlie my idea for a new hashtag, she immediately “got it” and ran with it. Since that time, just two weeks ago, we’ve created some art pieces, and shared it just a little on social media. The response has been amazing. Thank you Karlie Mosher!  I hope you #LoveWhereYouLive
