MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (JUNE 24, 2023) — Great Clips, Inc. has been named one of the Top 200 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. The company was ranked #27 on the midsized company list.

“At Great Clips, Inc., every staff member contributes to creating a great workplace with a clear focus on living our values,” said Steve Hockett, CEO of Great Clips, Inc. “This award would not have been possible without the great people on our team that show up to make a difference for our franchisees and the communities that they serve.”

Produced by the same team that compiles the 33-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 149,176 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations. 

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

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.
