The Dakota-Scott Workforce Development Board has named Dakota Electric Association one of the Employers of Excellence for the fifth time. 

Dakota Electric was one of five businesses chosen for several reasons including employee retention, training and development practices and employee benefits, among other things.  

The Workforce Development Board commissioned a study that provided businesses with a 40-question survey that evaluated their employment practices using numerous metrics including benefits, training, time off, employee injuries and more. 

Those who scored well on the survey were identified as Employers of Excellence. The survey results provide vital information to local companies about the practices used to attract and retain employees. 

“We were honored to receive this award for the fifth time,” human resources manager Amy Hansen said. “We strive to provide a work environment that allows us to hire and retain quality employees who can focus on providing excellent service to our members.”
