Press Releases

Minnetonka, MN, June 24, 2024 — Channel is proud to announce that, for the third consecutive year, it has been named one of the Top 200 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune, ranking fifth amongst the top midsize companies in the state. This recognition highlights our dedication to fostering a supportive, inclusive, and dynamic work environment for our team members. We are honored to be acknowledged as a top workplace, and we remain committed to making Channel an exceptional place for our team to grow and thrive. 

“At Channel, every team member actively contributes to creating an exceptional workplace. This commitment is reflected in our communication, our treatment of one another, our approach to community involvement, and our collaboration with partners and customers,” says Rob Ceribelli, President. “Over the past four years, we have launched two additional businesses, and remain dedicated to instilling the same Channel values in these ventures to ensure our teams are both happy and motivated.” 

Produced by the same team that compiles the 33-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 149,176 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations. The rankings in the Star Tribune Top 200 Workplaces are based on survey information collected by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. 

Cindy Fleck, Managing Director says, “We have been extremely fortunate to attract talent that perfectly fits our culture. Ensuring the right fit is always a top priority during our interview process. Despite our tremendous growth, we have maintained our unique culture by hiring team members who align with our values and support our core principles of understanding, connecting, and winning together.”
