Star Tribune Top Work Places 2021

Star Tribune Top Workplace Award

Creative Homes has been named one of the Top 175 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune! Among the top 150 small companies, Creative Homes was ranked #20 on the list. A complete list of those selected is available here and was recently published in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section. “The companies in the Star Tribune Top 175 Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota. My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies,” Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith wrote.

Produced by the same team that compiles the 30-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 76,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations. The rankings in the Star Tribune Top 175 Workplaces are based on survey information collected by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention.

Time and time again Creative Homes employees mention the fun culture and passion! Survey results of employees in 2021 showed a common theme of words including love, fun, team, energy, and culture.  

“We are so excited that our employees once again feel the same passion and named Creative Homes as a great place to work,” said Nick Hackworthy, Creative Homes president. “Our team’s focus on delivering an unmatched customer experience and a 'work hard, play hard' culture makes this a fun place to work. We often talk about one of our core values, ‘good is not good enough,’ and we apply that approach to not only ourselves, but the mark we are making in our community."

Creative Homes is a new home construction company out of Woodbury, Minnesota. It’s award-winning homes and passion to deliver an unmatched customer experience promotes collaboration and communication across all levels of the organization. In addition to building quality homes and delivering an unmatched customer experience, Creative Homes has many initiates to support both employee growth and growth in the communities we serve. By partnering with many non-profits located throughout the Twin Cities, we give back our time, money, and resources all while having fun as a team. 

To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have under 50 employees in Minnesota. Nearly 3,000 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.

We had an exceptional experience with Creative Homes and would recommend them to anyone. Not only did we get a well-built home, but the customer service exceeded our expectations. From our first meeting, to well-after we closed on our new home, the Creative Homes team made us feel like we were family. We already know we want Creative Homes to build our next home (in many, many years)!

This is the second home we have built and after the horrible experience we had the first time, I said we would never do it again. Thankfully, our experience with Creative Homes was the exact opposite. We have had a wonderful experience with the quality and detail of the home and everyone we have met from Creative Homes.

I really enjoyed the weekly calls with the builder. It made me feel like I knew what progress was happening during the build, and really set a tone of trust with the builder that I wasn't expecting. I found those conversations, even when very short, to be extremely helpful in staying calm during the build process.
