2015 Great Place to Work logoFORTUNE magazine-published list names the best workplaces in the country

PEWAUKEE, WIS. – American Transmission Co. was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the best workplaces in the United States on the 2015 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published today in FORTUNE magazine. This is the second consecutive year ATC has been named to the list.

Competing against hundreds of companies across the country, ATC participated in a rigorous selection process that included an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about benefits programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® evaluated each application based on five dimensions of a great workplace: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.

As ATC strives to be the nation’s premier energy delivery company, processes such as these help illustrate how ATC employees experience their workplace.

“We work hard to be a company where employees enjoy working, and it is through teamwork that we continue to achieve success,” said ATC President and CEO Mike Rowe. “Being named to the list for the second year in a row is certainly an honor, especially because our employees’ survey responses put us on the list.”

The Best Small & Medium Workplaces list is divided into two categories, small (25-250 employees) and medium (251-999 employees), and recognizes companies with exceptional workplace cultures. Great Place to Work® has found that employees believe they work for great organizations when they trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy their coworkers.

ATC also was named one of the top workplaces in southeastern Wisconsin by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2014 and 2015.
