SEL named one of the best workplaces in manufacturing and production

PULLMAN, Wash.—Great Place to Work's Great Rated! has chosen Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc., as one of the "People's Picks: 15 Great Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production."

A "best of the best" ranking, the 15 Great Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production were determined by a survey of over 34,000 employees from 44 U.S. manufacturing and production companies conducted in conjunction with the Great Place to Work survey. The survey consisted of 58 questions about how frequently employees experience the behaviors that create a great workplace.

"It is an honor to be included in this list of exceptional companies, and it’s particularly gratifying because this ranking is based on the input of our employees," said Kevin Fritch, vice president of Global Factories at SEL—a 100-percent-employee-owned company based in Pullman, Washington. "This recognition is a testament to the SEL culture of creativity, innovation, quality and pride of ownership."

SEL received consistently high rankings—92.5 percent average—in multiple areas covered by the survey, including professional development and training, company atmosphere, benefits and rewards.

"I feel my company is doing amazing things for its employees and for the world. Management has made great financial decisions, setting an example for how it should be done. And, I appreciate the rewards we are given when we prosper," writes one SEL employee surveyed.

Now in its third year, the Great Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production rankings and Great Rated! website provide job seekers with a real behind-the-scenes look into companies and their cultures.

"The employees of SEL are proud of the work they do to make electric power safer," says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Great Rated!’s vice president and senior editor. "This 100-percent-employee-owned company is very committed to quality, and motivation runs high—and the perks, like periodic extra paydays, don’t hurt either."
