Westar Energy was recently recognized as one of America’s Best Employers for 2019 by Forbes.
In partnership with market research group, Statisa, Forbes surveyed 50,000 Americans working for companies with 1,000 or more employees. Participants rated how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to other job seekers. Participants also nominated other employers in their industry. Forbes used this information to create a list of the best large and midsize companies. Westar was recognized in the midsize category.
“We work every day to create a culture of engagement and inclusion, where our employees can grow and succeed. We’re grateful to be recognized by Forbes as a top employer,” said Jerl Banning, senior vice president and chief people officer.
