J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of regulatory, safety and compliance solutions, announced it has been certified as a great workplace by the independent analysts at Great Place to Work®. J. J. Keller earned this prestigious credential based on extensive ratings provided by its associates in an anonymous survey. The company is one of only 16 organizations currently recognized by Great Place to Work® in the state of Wisconsin.
“Through the survey, we heard clearly that our associates are proud of the difference we make in the community. Associates feel they are treated fairly here. They have the ability to balance their home and work lives. And overall, they appreciate the family atmosphere at J. J. Keller,” said Marne Keller-Krikava, president and CEO of J. J. Keller. “Our care for our associates is reflected in all we do, including the care we provide for our customers.”
Keller-Krikava’s grandfather founded the company in 1953 as a one-man consulting firm. His vision was to build a team of associates with shared responsibilities and shared results. As a family-owned business, J. J. Keller has stayed true to this “Associate Principle” along with a core set of values and strategic beliefs. These have served the company well. Today, the company has grown to more than 1,400 associates in the Fox Valley as well as remote work locations across the United States.
The Great Place to Work Institute recognizes that every organization has a story that makes it unique. Using employee feedback through the Great Place to Work Trust Index© Survey, organizations are assessed based on five principles – credibility, fairness, respect, camaraderie and pride – that define the overall concept of what an employee views as a great workplace. In addition, a Culture Audit© Management Questionnaire polls employees on nine primary practice areas that define a great workplace.
"We applaud J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. for seeking certification and releasing its employees' feedback," said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work's Certification Program. "These ratings measure its capacity to earn its associates’ trust and create a great workplace – critical metrics that anyone considering working for or doing business with J. J. Keller should take into account as an indicator of high performance."
“Being recognized as a great place to work recognizes our commitment to our associates.

Keller. “We want all associates to know they are part of an extraordinary team that is making a difference.”
