Forbes released its Global 2000 list of the World’s Best Employees, and several mpls downtown council members made this year’s list.

Among the thousands of companies considered, seven mpls downtown council members were within the top 500 on the list. Two of those companies—Target and Xcel Energy—are headquartered in Minneapolis.

The Forbes ranking is based on survey responses from employees who rate their employer by describing how likely they would be to recommend them and identifying other companies they admired. Xcel Energy is the highest-ranking U.S. electric utility on the Forbes list in 2018.

Congratulations to all the companies who were selected on this year’s list.
