StarTribune Names The Wedge Co-op Among Twin Cities' Top 2010 Workplaces

The Wedge is one of the top 100 workplaces in the Twin Cities, based on an employee survey conducted by the Star Tribune newspaper. The results were published in the June 20 edition.

Star Tribune's Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies based on employee opinions about company leadership, career opportunities, workplace flexibility, compensation and benefits. The analysis included responses from more than 33,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.

This recognition underscores our 35-year commitment to providing a nurturing environment for our employees. "When we began in 1974, our employees were a determined group of neighbors who donated their time to provide a lasting source of sustainable food for health and environmentally conscious consumers," says our GM, Lindy Bannister. "That founding principle remains; our staff works here because they are passionate about natural and organic products and advocates for a vibrant local food economy."

To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in the Twin Cities metro area. The newspaper invited more than 1,000 companies to participate and based its rankings solely on composite scores of employee responses.

We were ranked 28th in the top midsized company list.
