SJF Honored at Minnesota’s Top 100 Companies Celebration

Earlier this year, SJF Material Handling received notice that it had been named one of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” in 2018 by Minnesota Business Magazine. The awards program and dinner honoring this year’s award recipients took place on Thursday, June 28 at the JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America.

Qualifications for the “100 Best” Award

To be awarded this honor, the following excerpt from Minnesota Business Magazine states:

Minnesota is known for being a great place to live and work, with top-notch companies in many industries headquartered here. Each year, these companies submit nominations for the 100 Best Companies to Work For Awards by Minnesota Business magazine. This award recognizes Minnesota’s top companies and, time after time, helps the winners attract key employees who make all the difference.

The “100 Best” were determined by the resulting scores of an anonymous online questionnaire filled out by the employees of each participating company — to determine which companies in Minnesota excel in the areas of work environment, employee benefits, and overall employee happiness, making them the 100 Best Companies to Work For.

This is the 4th time SJF has been named to this prestigious list and we are very proud of the accomplishment!
