ATC named one of the nation’s top workplaces

Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE magazine-published list ranks top 15 manufacturing & production workplaces in the country

PEWAUKEE, WIS. — American Transmission Co. ranks as one of the nation’s top workplaces, having been chosen as one of the People’s Picks: 15 Great Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production by Great Place to Work®’s Great Rated!™. This honor comes after ATC last fall was named one of the top 25 workplaces in the United States on FORTUNE magazine’s 2014 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list.

The 15 Great Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production is a “best of the best” ranking. Of the 600 companies surveyed by Great Place to Work®, 44 were in the Manufacturing & Production category. ATC and the other 14 winning companies in this category were selected based on the evaluations of nearly 34,000 employees from companies across the country who were surveyed to get their assessment of their workplaces and employers. Employers were evaluated through Great Place to Work®’s Trust Index© survey, and the companies with the highest levels of trust, camaraderie and pride among their employees are the ones that rank on this list.

“We are honored to again be named among the best places to work in the country,” said ATC President and CEO John Procario. “We strive to be the employer of choice for talented and dedicated people.”

The full category in which ATC participated was the Manufacturing & Production/Energy Distribution, as it was the established category that came closest to encompassing ATC’s unique business model as a transmission-only utility. Pewaukee, Wis.-based ATC, with 650 employees, was formed in 2001 as the first multi-state, transmission-only utility in the country.
