Star Tribune Names W3i to Star Tribune's Top Workplaces 2010

ST. CLOUD, MN--(Marketwire - June 21, 2010) -  W3i, a leading desktop and mobile Application Distribution Network for the internet industry, was named one of the Top Workplaces in the Twin Cities metro area, based on an employee-based survey project from the Star Tribune. The Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section was published in the Star Tribune on Sunday, June 20. The report can be found at Star Tribune/Top Workplaces 2010

Produced by the same team that compiles the 19-year-old Star Tribune 100 report of the best-performing public companies in Minnesota, Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in the metro area -- based on employee opinions about company leadership, career opportunities, workplace flexibility, compensation, and benefits. The analysis included responses from over 33,000 employees at Minnesota public, private, and non-profit organizations.

The rankings in the Star Tribune top places to work are based on survey information collected by Workplace Dynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention.

W3i CEO, Andy Johnson, said, "I am honored to work with a group of people as highly engaged and focused on a common mission as the team at W3i. It is because of this engagement and passion that W3i is such a great place to work. It's a real pleasure to be part of building a company that we can all be proud of."

Star Tribune Publisher, Michael J. Klingensmith, comments, "I congratulate each of the companies in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces on their outstanding accomplishment. They have succeeded in creating a positive workplace for their employees during very challenging economic times."
