Associated Bank has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 honor by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC.


“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”


The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few.


“We thank our colleagues for sharing their valuable feedback,” said Laurie Riedy Timmerman, director of colleague experience, Associated Bank. “Through this opportunity, we are able to gain great insight into how we can continuously improve the workplace experience for our colleagues, which helps us attract high-caliber talent and better serve our customers.”


“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
