Prairie Business magazine started hosting the Best Places to Work contest in 2014, which services North and South Dakota, as well as western Minnesota. Companies were selected based on employee satisfaction surveys, submitted voluntarily by employees throughout the region. The rating categories were in areas such as work environment, employee benefits, and employee happiness. Survey comments were reviewed by Prairie Business staff and consideration was given to the number of surveys submitted for each company. Companies were divided into large (100 or more employees) and small (99 or fewer employees) categories.

Young Professionals Best Place to Work - Gold
Young Professionals Best Place to Intern - Silver

The Best Place to Work and Intern awards, started by the North Dakota Young Professional (NDYP) in 2008, are a reflection of the creativity and innovation that businesses offer young professionals. In order to be considered for the award, applicants must submit a detailed questionnaire about company benefits, advancement opportunities, and why their business is an outstanding place for young professionals to work. A statewide committee of NDYP judges review nominees and determine winners and runners-up (if applicable). Winners are selected based on a pre-set criterion examining how the business benefits individuals, how the organization supports local YP networks and YP development, and how the company gives back to the community. Extra attention is paid to unique best practices that are used to develop the work environment and create opportunities for individuals.
