Employers throughout the New North are encouraged to apply for the 2019 New North Workplace Excellence Award, which honors organizations that are improving their competitive advantage through people practices that lead to successful business results.

The award is a collaboration between New North Inc. and Right Management, and employers within the 18-county region are eligible to apply. Organizations are measured on employee engagement, business outcomes and overall success in evaluating award submissions.

The application process consists of three phases. Phase 1, which is due by 5 p.m. on June 28, requires a business to complete a brief statement of consideration. Responses should be emailed to [email protected].

Phase 2 qualifiers will be informed on July 19 and invited to submit a detailed application by Aug. 16. Phase 3 finalists will be notified on Aug. 30, which will be followed by a site visit from the award’s judging committee to select the winner(s).

The 2019 winner(s) of the New North Workplace Excellence Award will be announced at the annual New North Summit on Dec. 5 at the KI Convention Center in Green Bay.

Recent New North Workplace Excellence Award winners include Schneider (2018); American Transmission Co., Expera Specialty Solutions and Werner Electric Supply (2017); Foth (2016); Oshkosh Corp. (2015); and U.S. Venture, Inc. (2014).
