Two companies headquartered in Minnesota have made the 2009 Fortune magazine “100 Best Companies to Work For” list: General Mills of Minneapolis and the Mayo Clinic of Rochester.

Employees cited a variety of reasons their organizations were great workplaces. General Mills employees cited the company’s wellness program and on-site medical clinics. At the Mayo Clinic, employees mentioned the great medical benefits available to part-time employees, spouses, children and domestic partners as a reason they love their employer.

Why it matters: Employers recruiting talent from elsewhere sometimes have to fight the mistaken impression that Minnesota is a state in decline. Point out that this is a misconception by mentioning that two top Minnesota employers made the Fortune list.
