After a two-year hiatus, Madison Magazine is bringing back its annual Best Places to Work program. Now, it’s time to nominate your Madison-area workplace to be considered for Best Places to Work 2022.

The annual program provides local employers the opportunity to learn more about the engagement and satisfaction of their employees and honor those who deliver an outstanding work experience. Research shows that engaged employees stay with their employers longer, serve customers more effectively and help contribute toward a more profitable company. Survey questions inquire about several aspects of their workplace such as trust, benefits, satisfaction and opportunities, management and co-workers.

The nomination will give you access to participate in our exclusive survey to measure your company’s strengths in key areas of employee engagement. Your company could then appear on the list of best workplaces in the October 2022 issue of Madison Magazine.

The deadline to submit nominations is March 11. To fill out a nomination form, click here.
