Ascendium named a Madison Top Workplace

Ascendium has once again been recognized as one of the best places to work in the Madison, Wisconsin, area. For the third consecutive year, the Wisconsin State Journal named Ascendium as a Top Workplace.

This is a unique honor since the designation is solely based on the input employees provide on a workplace survey. The survey results are analyzed by Energage, a third-party organization that specializes in employee engagement and culture research. Only companies that meet certain benchmarks are named a Top Workplace.

What makes Ascendium a great place to work? Some of our employees shared their thoughts.

One of our main priorities is supporting our employees in doing and being their best, both at work and at home. We're proud to receive this designation and want to thank our employees for making it possible.
