S&C Electric Company Named Among Top 2022 Workplaces in the United States
Chicago’s Power Grid Innovator Honored on Top Workplaces USA List for Second Year
CHICAGO, February 1, 2022 – S&C Electric Company, a Chicago-based grid innovator improving power reliability and delivery worldwide, has been recognized as a top employer in the United States for the second year in a row by Top Workplaces USA. The 2022 Top Workplaces USA list recognizes companies nationwide that engage, motivate, and reward their team members. The award is based on anonymous team member feedback to evaluate how organizations create and sustain a positive and productive culture.
"We are honored to once again be named to the Top Workplaces USA list. As an employee-owned company, S&C has a unique culture where team members care for each other and empower each other to grow and succeed,” said Anders Sjoelin, president and CEO of S&C Electric Company. “Our customers are at the center of the energy transition, providing S&C and our team members opportunities to create solutions that will help build a greener and more resilient grid. Making a meaningful impact on the world is one of the many reasons our team members build life-long careers here.”
S&C comprises a variety of roles, from manufacturing to engineering, and the average team member tenure is 11 years—three times the national average. Focused on the continued safety and wellbeing of team members, S&C introduced several initiatives last year, including a remote work program that provides greater flexibility, an increase to the S&C minimum hourly wage to $18 per hour, and an onsite COVID-19 vaccine program for team members.
To qualify for the Top Workplaces USA’s list, a company must have at least 150 employees in the United States and have 35 percent or more of team members complete the workplace survey. The survey is then run by a third-party research firm, Energage, which coordinates the surveys and calculates the list of top workplaces. The complete Top Workplaces USA list, which can be viewed here, includes more than 1,150 organizations throughout the country across a wide range of industries, including technology, healthcare, manufacturing, and nonprofit, among others.
For the past three years, S&C was regionally named one of the best large employers in the Chicago Tribune’s Top Workplaces list. Headquartered in Chicago for more than 110 years, S&C is Chicago’s second-largest manufacturer and employs more than 3,500 team members at its U.S. facilities in Chicago; Phoenix; West Palm Beach, Florida; Rockville, Maryland; Dallas; and Franklin, Wisconsin.
