Mandan, N.D., August 30, 2017 — For the fourth consecutive year, National Information Solutions Cooperative (NISC) has been recognized by Prairie Business magazine as one of the 50 Best Places to Work in the northern plains. Earlier this year, employees nominated companies by submitting an anonymous employee-satisfaction survey, which sought out input on each employer’s benefits, workplace culture and employee morale, among other factors. Prairie Business received more than 1,000 nominations from employees from around the region according to Tom Dennis, Prairie Business editor.

“The 50 Best companies clearly recognize employee satisfaction as one of the keys to productivity and profitability,” Dennis said. “That comes through in the surveys over and over again. We all know how hard we’ll work to satisfy a good manager. Turns out people feel the same way about the companies they work for – and when an employer goes the extra mile for its workforce, the workers go all out to return the favor.”

The 50 Best Places to Work award is now in its fourth year, and the businesses have been honored in the magazine’s September issue.

“This award is an honor for NISC because it is truly driven by the employees and their satisfaction working here,” said Kari Reichert, NISC Vice President of People Services. “We are constantly looking for ways to bring a more fulfilling experience to the staff at NISC, as they are the cornerstone of NISC’s success. This honor for the fourth consecutive year is an affirmation we are working in the right direction to ensure our employees feel appreciated and empowered.”
