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.

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.

It has been four months since we have moved into our home and I cannot put into words how thankful we are that we built with Creative. They’re the type of company you feel like once you move in you want to invite over for dinner and drinks once a month! In conversation with other friends and family who have built new construction with other companies, I truly believe that Creative is unique in that!

Wow! It's hard to know where to even start and I know I won't be able to list everything, but I have to try and tell you how we awesome we feel about the whole building process with Creative Homes and how much we truly love our new home. The process of building with Creative Homes was the most relaxing (sounds weird, but so true!) home building experience we have ever been through. The communication provided from the very start until the very end has been phenomenal. Not once during the whole process did we ever sit and wonder what was going on regarding our home.  I honestly wish I could name everyone behind the scenes at Creative Homes who works so hard to make customers like us have such an awesome home building experience. This company has the standards and employees that all companies should take note of and follow the example of.

Building a home with Creative is more than a process of building a house. Its the people you get to meet, work with and get to know along the way. And Creative knows the right people to have in the right position.
