For the 10th consecutive year, Milwaukee-based Western Products, a division of Douglas Dynamics LLC, has been recognized as a Top Workplace by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Western is known for manufacturing innovative snow and ice removal equipment for contractors and homeowners alike. However, the distinction of being a Milwaukee Top Workplace relies on much more than product.
Workplaces are nominated by employees and judged solely on employee surveys administered by Energage, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “The program recognizes businesses and organizations in southeast Wisconsin that provide their employees with a great work environment, flexibility, advancement opportunities and other tools they need to succeed.”
Western Products offers a competitive salary, benefits, and employee-driven professional development, all of which factored into the award. The company currently employs approximately 300 people in the Milwaukee area and had cultivated a winning work environment and ethic for more than 65 years.
