SportsEngine, Inc., an NBC Sports Group company, and the leading provider of Sport Relationship Management software, announced today that it has been recognized as a Best Place to Work by The Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal. SportsEngine was ranked 6th in the large company category, which includes Twin Cities companies with greater than 250 employees located in the Minneapolis/St. Paul 7-county region.
The Best Places to Work honorees are determined through survey data administered by Omaha, Neb.-based Quantum Workplace. Companies with offices in the Twin Cities region registered to receive the survey and Quantum administered a confidential employee survey aimed at getting first-hand feedback about a range of topics that include communication, professional development and leadership practices. The research process resulted in scores identifying 60 corporate honorees in four categories: extra small, small, medium and large companies.
SportsEngine’s Talent Acquisition Manager, Jessi Howard, was one of only four recognized as an MVP Award Winner. The MVP award recognizes individuals at the Best Places to Work companies for their efforts in helping to create their workplace’s engaging environment. Honorees were determined based on employee feedback from questions in the confidential employee survey and selected for going above and beyond in HR-related functions that contribute to a great workplace.
