Great River Energy earns third Great Place to Work Certification™ 

Great River Energy is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work® for the third time. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Great River Energy. This year, 88% of employees said it’s a great place to work – that’s 31 points higher than the average U.S. company. 

“We are thrilled to become Great Place to Work-Certified™. Company culture has been a focus and strategic advantage for our organization since Great River Energy was founded,” said President and CEO David Saggau. “The benefits of an intentional culture led us to becoming a strong, values-based organization, with satisfied and engaged employees, and highly satisfied member-owner cooperatives. We owe our continued success to our dedicated employees who make us great.” 

Great Place to Work® Certification™ is the most definitive “employer-of-choice” recognition that companies aspire to achieve. It is the only recognition based entirely on what employees report about their workplace experience – specifically, how consistently they experience a high-trust workplace. Great Place to Work Certification is recognized worldwide by employees and employers alike and is the global benchmark for identifying and recognizing outstanding employee experience. Every year, more than 10,000 companies across 60 countries apply to get Great Place to Work-Certified.  

“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Great River Energy is one of the best companies to work for in the country.” 

Great River Energy has participated in three Great Place to Work® surveys and has been certified all three times. For a summary of Great River Energy’s ratings and its company review visit:
