This year there is also one Sustained Excellence Award winner — QLI. This award is given to organizations that have been identified as one of the Best Places to Work in Omaha in at least three out of four consecutive years.

Created by Baird Holm LLP, the Best Places to Work in Omaha initiative measures levels of employee engagement through an online survey. The survey is administered and feedback is provided by Quantum Workplace.

“While it’s one thing to claim to be a great place to work, it’s another to demonstrate it with outstanding engagement scores,” said Scott S. Moore, partner at Baird Holm.

“Whether creating, collaborating or just building community, superior organizations deserve applause,'' said David G. Brown, president and CEO of the Chamber. "The Best Places to Work in Omaha initiative celebrates organizations that have mastered the art of employee engagement, demonstrating what it takes to build and nurture successful teams. We celebrate everyone who participated in the process this year and look forward to learning from the list of winners.” 

This year's winners will be recognized at a May 24 luncheon at the La Vista Conference Center. Tickets are $40 per person or $400 for a table of 10. For reservations, visit bairdholm.com.

Not many good places to work in Omaha.
Where is Peter Kiewit, Union Pacific, Mutual of Omaha and other major corporations?

Welcome to the discussion.
