| News, Culture, Community, Clean Energy, Character

(Avon, Minnesota) – Blattner Company has been named one of the Top 200 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune for 2022 and was ranked in the top 10 in the large company category. 


Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions, which measure engagement, organizational health and satisfaction. This year’s Top Workplaces analysis included responses from more than 79,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.


The rankings in the Star Tribune Top 200 Workplaces are based on survey information collected by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. Blattner employees took the survey earlier this year. 

“We are honored to be recognized as one of Minnesota’s Top Workplaces,” Blattner Chief Legal Officer and Chief Human Resources Officer Andy Budish said. “Our employees are the single greatest asset that we have as a company. Blattner works to foster a culture that lives out our basics, values and purpose. We create an environment where our employees want to be, and that’s why they love what they do.”  

This award recognizes organizational health factors that measure how well employees work together toward a common cause at Blattner Company’s corporate office in Avon, Minnesota. These factors include:

  • Alignment: Where the company is headed, its values
  • Effectiveness: Doing things well, encouraging new ideas
  • Connection: Employees feel appreciated, that their work is meaningful
  • Managers: Care about concerns, help employees grow

“We are humbled and honored to receive the Top Workplaces recognition,” Blattner Inclusion & Diversity Program Manager Shannon Lueck said. “Blattner strives to create a culture of ongoing learning, personal fulfillment and belonging for our employees, customers and the communities we serve. I continue to be astounded by the authenticity, empathy and humbleness our leaders and employees exhibit every day.”  


To qualify for Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. More than 4,000 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on employee responses to 24 survey questions.


In the survey, team members had much to say about Blattner’s four C’s – Culture, Character, Community and Clean Energy – which embody and reflect Blattner’s values and common purpose. Blattner employees use the four C’s to build a better tomorrow through their work. A commitment to culture, community, character and clean energy shows in their work on a daily basis.



Culture must be cultivated. That’s why we’re always working to grow together. We show up for our co-workers and when it matters.  



Our character shines through in how we collaborate, innovate and work for the greater good.  



We embrace the energy of the communities we work in. We try to leave every community we touch better than it was.
