ATC named one of the top workplaces in southeastern Wisconsin for third year

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Top Workplaces list names 150 best area employers

PEWAUKEE, WIS. — American Transmission Co. has been selected as one of the 2015 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Top Workplaces in southeastern Wisconsin. The top workplaces are determined based on feedback from an employee survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, an organizational health and employee engagement research firm. This is the sixth year the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has published the list of top area workplaces, and this is the third time ATC has been named to the list. This year, ATC is number 4 on the list of midsize companies, up from its number 12 position last year.

ATC has 382 employees at its headquarters in Pewaukee, Wis. More than 80 percent of employees responded to the workplace survey in fall 2014, which asked about ATC’s corporate values, leadership and culture, as well as employees’ job satisfaction and overall feelings about working at the company.

“I’m very pleased to see that ATC employees have such a high regard for our workplace,” said ATC President and CEO Mike Rowe. “Being recognized as a Top Workplace is an honor, especially because it is our employees who are the judges.”

Last fall, ATC also ranked among the nation’s top-25 medium-sized Great Places to Work as published in FORTUNE magazine. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel will publish its complete list of top workplaces this weekend.
