Madison, WI – March 22, 2012.  Madison Magazine and WISC-TV’s Live at Five along with Next Generation Consulting have named the Madison Mallards one of Madison’s Best Places to Work for 2012.

The survey measures six areas of employee engagement: trust, management, development, rewards, connection and life-work balance.  New this year was a separate human resources questionnaire that rated organizations in the areas of sustainability and diversity.

“This year’s winners were more qualified than ever before and those that made it into the top 10 scored higher than previous winners in nearly all areas of employee engagement,” says Madison Magazine editor Brennan Nardi.  “Madison gets high marks for being a great place to live.  Our survey shows it’s a great place to work, too, and highlights the best practices of those leading the way.”

Companies were divided into two groups based on organization size – those with 100 and more employees and those with under 100.  The Top 10 Organizations in each category were recognized and were ranked by best score based on 80% Employee Engagement, 15% Sustainability, and 5% Diversity.  The Mallards ranked seventh in the companies with over 100 employees.
