Two Minnesota icons have been named to Fortune magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list.
Employees claim the Mayo Clinic provides the best possible care for its patients and has the same attitude toward its employees. Employees submit ideas for improving the clinic through its “Love Your Idea” program. This warmlanded the clinic the 55th spot on Fortune’s list.
Food conglomerate General Mills just made the list at No. 99. The magazine cited the company’s expanding infant day care program. General Mills pays a quarter of the cost for employees to use the benefit, which has grown 43% in recent years. More than 800 couples with children work for the company, whose brands include Yoplait yogurt, Progresso soup and Betty Crocker products.
