For the third year, YPWeek recognizes the Wisconsin companies that make it a priority to retain and engage their young talent through a dynamic workplace. We are proud to announce the winners of the 2017 Bubbler Awards: Best Places to Work for Young Professionals in Wisconsin. The following companies were nominated by their employees, evaluated and selected by a group of young professional leaders from across the state of Wisconsin as the Top 10 Best Places to Work for Young Professionals.
The Bubbler Awards is an example of how YPWeek Wisconsin highlights the young professional voice. Additionally, the nomination and selection process establish a framework for existing and emerging young professionals throughout the state to collaborate and brand Wisconsin as a workplace destination for Millennials. The nomination evaluation centered on what Millennials are looking for in today’s workplace including: competitive salary and benefits, opportunity for advancement and employee and community engagement.
YPWeek, founded in 2012, is a week-long platform of discovery, adventure and meaningful conversations about the issues that matter to young professionals. YPWeek Wisconsin has continued to reach across the state with the support of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) since 2015, and its participants have collaborated with the agency on a shared communication platform designed to retain, excite, and grow the state’s talent pool. YPWeek incorporates this platform into its programming, leveraging “Think-Make-Happen,” as an organizing theme.
