Star Tribune Names Central Boiler Companies A 2022 Top 200 Workplace

Central Boiler Companies has been named one of the Top 200 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. This is the fourth time they received such an award. A complete list of those selected is available at and was published in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section on Sunday, June 19. 

Produced by the same team that compiles the 31-year-old Star Tribune 100 report of the best-performing public companies in Minnesota, Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from over 79,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.

The rankings in the Star Tribune Top 200 Workplaces are based on survey information collected by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. Only 5% of companies that were invited to apply received this recognition.

“It is an honor to be included again this year in the list of Top Workplaces. We make it a priority to maintain an employee-first atmosphere where innovation and growth are encouraged. We are a family-owned company with family values built into our DNA. That creates a positive, productive culture that fosters longevity,” said Jarod Reierson, Human Resources Manager.

Employees provided a long list of benefits of working for Central Boiler Companies, including their commitment to employee safety and health, the profit-sharing bonus and the 401K match. 2021 marked the twenty-ninth consecutive year the company distributed a bonus. The 2021 bonus, along with the company’s contributions to the employee 401K accounts, totaled over $1.2 million.

Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith said, “The companies in the Star Tribune Top 200 Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota. My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies.”

To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Over 4,000 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.
