St. Cloud, MN, June 24, 2018—Bursch Travel has been named one of the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. A complete list of those selected can be found here

Produced by the same team that compiles the 27-year-old Star Tribune 100 report of the best-performing public companies in Minnesota, Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from over 71,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.

The rankings in the Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces are based on survey information collected by Energage, formerly WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention.

Bursch Travel was ranked 62 on the small company list.    

“This award is a credit to our hard-working employees” said company owner and president, Fred Bursch.  “My father started the company 62 years ago with the idea of sharing the success with members of his team.  As the company has grown we have never forgotten our roots.”

Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith said, “The companies in the
Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota. My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies.” 

Bursch Travel has 19 locations in the Upper Midwest and Northern Rockies in the states of Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Nebraska and Wyoming.  A second-generation family business for 62 years, Bursch Travel is a strong believer in providing knowledgeable, local service to both corporate and leisure travelers.  Bursch Travel believes that community involvement is an important responsibility of any business. 



To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Over 2,400 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.
