Johnsonville Recognized Among Top 15 Best Wisconsin Employers

Forbes Magazine Honors Johnsonville for 3rd Consecutive Year as a Top Place to Work in Wisconsin

We’re proud to be America’s favorite sausage brand and we couldn’t get there without talented members and providing them a great place to work.

So it was nice to be listed among Forbes’ latest “Best Employers in Wisconsin” for the 3rd year in a row, ranking #15 this year among a respected list of employers. Per Forbes and market research firm Statista, “Johnsonville is deemed a 3-Year Champion as one of Wisconsin’s best employers. This consistency is a direct reflection of the satisfaction, professional fulfillment, inclusiveness, fairness, and trust of those that work at Johnsonville.”

To compile the Best Employers list, Statista independently surveyed about 70,000 workers at American companies and institutions with 500+ employees. They asked survey participants to rate their employer overall and in categories such as work environment, diversity, salary, advancement opportunities, and pride in the company’s products or services. Also contributing to the research were 2.1 million indirect and direct employer recommendations. For more information, check out the Forbes article.

Johnsonville was ranked at No. 25 nationally on Forbes’ list of “Best Midsize Companies” to work for in America in 2021 and made the national list again in 2022 and 2023.

“Our goal is to create a positive work environment where every one of our members can thrive,” said Nick Meriggioli, Johnsonville’s CEO.  “So this recognition is nice to receive, but we know our work is not done.  We will continue to seek feedback from our members to keep improving our work environment.”

Johnsonville has implemented several initiatives to best meet the needs of its members. In addition to the company’s monthly profit-sharing bonus program, competitive compensation packages, on-site fitness center and health clinic, newer efforts include flexible and remote-work arrangements, and expanded behavioral and mental health resources.  To learn about current opportunities to join the Johnsonville team, visit
