S&C Electric Company Named Among Top 2021 Workplaces in the United States

Chicago’s Second-Largest Manufacturer and a Power Grid Innovator Named to Inaugural Top Workplaces USA List

CHICAGO, January 27, 2021 – S&C Electric Company, a Chicago-based grid innovator improving power reliability and delivery worldwide, has been named a top employer in the United States by Top Workplaces USA, the nation’s most credible employer-recognition program. Determined by feedback from the companies’ team members, this prestigious list also recognizes S&C as one of the top workplaces in the manufacturing industry, ranking 2nd nationally.

“Recognition as a top employer in the United States is an incredible honor, especially within the manufacturing space,” said Anders Sjoelin, S&C Electric Company president and CEO. “Amid the many challenges of last year, it’s deeply meaningful to see team members from production to offices champion S&C’s unique culture and celebrate the ways in which we continue to foster an inclusive and respectful work environment.”

For the past two years, S&C, an employee-owned manufacturer that prides itself on innovative new products and technologies for the electrical grid that deliver safer and more reliable power, was regionally named one of the best large employers in the Chicago Tribune’s Top Workplaces list. Headquartered in Chicago for 110 years, S&C is Chicago’s second-largest manufacturer and employs more than 2,500 team members at its U.S. facilities in Chicago, Illinois; Franklin, Wisconsin; Alameda, California; and West Palm Beach, Florida.

In addition to being named to the Top Workplaces USA list and the Top Workplaces list for the manufacturing industry, S&C was also awarded the Communication Culture Excellence Award. This award is determined based on team member feedback within the survey, which indicates team members feel well-informed on company decisions and news.

“We continuously work to keep the lines of communication open and maintain a focus on our people,” said Aurelie Richard, S&C chief human development and strategy officer. “Especially in a year with so many unknowns, it was our corporate responsibility to stay transparent with all our team members as we adjusted throughout the global pandemic.”

The 2021 Top Workplaces USA is an inaugural list that recognizes companies nationwide that engage, motivate, and reward team members and explores how organizations create and sustain a positive and productive culture. To qualify for Top Workplaces USA’s list, a company must have at least 150 employees in the United States and achieve a response rate to the Workplace Survey of 35% or higher. 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 600 organizations throughout the United States across a wide range of industries, including technology, healthcare, manufacturing, nonprofit, among others.
