Job seekers invited to follow the award-winning company on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram

BRAINERD, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ascensus—the nation’s largest independent retirement and college savings services provider—has been named a 2014 Top Workplace by the Star Tribune. Winners are based on results from an employee satisfaction survey that is administered to participating businesses in the state of Minnesota.

The survey, run by Workplace Dynamics, measures employees’ opinions on organizational health and overall job satisfaction. “We are delighted that, this year, recognition as a top workplace was awarded for both of our largest office locations: Minnesota and, as announced in March, Pennsylvania,” says Ascensus’ Senior Vice President of Human Resources Amy Walker. “This certainly helps to validate our approach to doing business—creating a positive experience for our clients by creating a positive company culture for our associates.”

When completing the survey, Ascensus associates had this to say:

  • It's impressive that our leaders are well respected in our industry and are successfully guiding/driving Ascensus forward. But what I really like is getting greeted by name when our executive vice president and others of the leadership team visit our location.
  • I love my job because it offers great support, detailed training, and encourages growth within its employees.
  • I love being part of a company that is growing and has a good reputation.

    “Receiving this recognition comes at a great time since we are expanding and actively recruiting across the organization at all levels,” added Walker. “Individuals interested in being part of a top workplace and doing the important work of helping more than six million Americans save for college and retirement are invited to learn more about our company by following us on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram.”
