Renewal by Andersen named to Star Tribune’s Top Workplace list for 2018

Cottage Grove, Minn. (June 25, 2018) – Renewal by Andersen, LLC., the start-to-finish window replacement division of Andersen Corporation, has been named one of the Top Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune for the second year in a row. A complete list of those selected was published in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section on Sunday, June 24.

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.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of the Star Tribune's Top Workplaces by our employees,” said Paul Delahunt, president of Renewal by Andersen. “Employees are the heart and soul of our company. Making Renewal by Andersen a place they are proud to work for is a top priority for us.”

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

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

Since opening its first store in Minnesota in 1995, Renewal by Andersen has expanded to nearly 100 markets throughout the U.S. and Canada. It has become one of the largest replacement window networks in the country, having installed more than 4 million windows.

Renewal by Andersen was also recently named a winner of the 2017 BBB Torch Award for Ethics, presented by the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota, for its commitment to exemplary ethics in its dealings with customers, employees and communities.

Featured Video: It's the People

The first English phrase Andersen Corporation founder Hans Andersen learned was the lumberjack rallying cry, “All together, boys!” The year was 1860, and the 16-year-old immigrant was working his way across his new country of America, picking up the language as he went. Those words and that spirit of teamwork impressed Andersen, and it is a core tenet of how Renewal does business today. See what some of our homeowners have to say about the folks who make our Signature Service come to life every day in this month’s featured video. (You can read about them here, too!)

What People Are Saying: July Featured Testimonials

Being a first time replacement window purchaser, we didn't know what to expect. We quickly realized that top quality product was going to be a big investment. But we were even more surprised by how excellent the customer service was from start to finish. 

Our consultant, Diana, was friendly, knowledgeable and was an active listener during our first meeting. She knew our pain points and addressed them. Scheduling was great as well and the follow up reminders were helpful. Our installers were great all around—the team showed up on time, were friendly, professional, and respectful of our home. They worked clean[ly] and efficiently, and were happy to answer any questions we had. 

Thank you Renewal by Andersen for renewing our faith that you can have your cake and eat it too.❞

Our Renewal by Andersen crew did an excellent job. They were very professional and efficient [and] scheduled the installation at my convenience. They installed 22 windows [and] completed the project in 4 days—exactly on time. The crew worked very hard in blistering summer heat but never complained. Crew manager Justin directed his crew professionally and mentored them during the entire installation process.

[We] are very pleased with the look of the windows…and a neighbor also came by and complimented us on the look of the exterior windows. They have very crisp lines and design on both the interior and the exterior, which we like. The crank operation of the casement and window operations are very simple and effective.

The satin nickel finish looks great on the hardware, too.Overall, we couldn't be more pleased!
