The Star Tribune names North Star Resource Group a 2021 Top Workplace

MINNEAPOLIS — June 18, 2021 — North Star Resource Group has officially been selected by the Star Tribune and Energage as a National Standard for Top Workplaces in Minnesota.

This regional honor follows North Star’s 2021 recognition as a Top Workplace USA, Top Workplace in Financial Services, Top Workplace for Communication, and a Work-Life Balance Culture Badge, all presented by Energage.

“Being recognized as a Top Workplace in Minnesota—where our roots were established in 1908 and where our national headquarters are housed—is a special honor,” said North Star CEO Ed Deutschlander. “As the financial services world continues to become more crowded, North Star continues to shine and stand out, and it’s all due to our financial professionals and team members. Special people make a special place.”

North Star will be recognized in this list of distinguished public, private and non-profit organizations. Members of the Star Tribune Top Workplaces list are chosen based solely on employee feedback gathered through an employee engagement survey, and results are calculated by comparing the survey’s research-based statements.

While the survey was anonymous, Energage provides quotes from the team members of North Star nationwide:

“I am part of a team working throughout the entire company. It is fun to work with everyone from the CEO to my fellow team members.”

“This job makes me feel like I am making an impact in lives and making a difference. The people really listen to your ideas.”

“I am able to think outside the box and make a difference [in] the company and to grow the firm.”

“There is no limit to how much I can grow or how successful I can be.”

“I feel part of something. I love all that I do. The people are friendly and welcoming and very helpful.”

The results of the survey information from employees were collected by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention.
