“It’s an honor to receive this award because it’s not only based on compensation and benefits, but also the feedback from our employees and their experiences working at NISC,” said Dan Wilbanks, NISC President and CEO. “This award would not be possible without our dedicated employees who work hard every day to take care of our Members and each other, and truly make NISC a great place to work.”

Rankings for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Top Workplaces were based off responses from the employees themselves. Employers were ranked based off employee feedback on the following issues relating to workplace culture: alignment, coaching, connection, engagement, leadership, performance and what they call “the basics” which include pay, benefits, training and more.
In addition to ranking third on the list of large companies, NISC also received a special award thanks to an overwhelming majority of employees stating that NISC is headed in the right direction.
