Sioux City Recognized on Forbes’ Best Employers List

Post Date:08/22/2019 4:22 PM

The City of Sioux City has been selected as a top employer on the Forbes list of America’s Best-in-State Employers 2019. The first-ever best employers by state ranking consists of a unique list for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

“We are humbled to be included as a top employer in the state of Iowa,” said Human Resources Director Janelle Bertrand. “The City of Sioux City strives to provide a positive work environment and this national recognition reflects how employees feel about the City as an employer.”

To determine the list, Forbes partnered with market research company, Statista, who surveyed 80,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees. All the surveys were anonymous, allowing participants to openly share their opinions. The respondents were asked to rate, on a scale of zero to 10, how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others. Statista then asked respondents to nominate organizations in industries outside their own. The number of businesses ranked in each state was dependent on two factors—the number of qualifying employers and the size of the state’s workforce—and those with operations in more than one state had the opportunity to be listed multiple times. The final list ranks the 1,430 employers that received the greatest number of recommendations in each of the 50 states as well as the District of Columbia.
