Fortune magazine recently published its 2008 list of “100 Best Companies to Work For,” and two Minnesota companies made the list:

  • The Mayo Clinic, in Rochester, ranked 59th, in part for its “hire for life” philosophy: 17% of Mayo employees have 20 or more years of service.
  • General Mills of Golden Valley came in 69th and received praise for its innovative policy allowing new mothers to phase back to work part-time, which has yielded a 96% rate of return from maternity leave.

In selecting the year’s top employers, Fortune considered such factors as job growth, pay, turnover, benefits, treatment of women and minorities, and culture.
