Versique Search and Consulting Named a Star Tribune Top 175 Workplace in 2021

For the 3rd straight year, The Star Tribune named Versique Search and Consulting as a Top 175 Workplace in Minnesota for 2021. Our office is thrilled once again, especially as we experienced an unprecedented year of uncertainty while navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic. A complete list of those selected is available at and was published in the Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section on Sunday, June 20.

The rankings in the Star Tribune Top 175 Workplaces are based on employee survey information collected by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. Versique was the only executive search & consulting firm featured within the Top 175.

Produced by the same team that compiles the 30-year-old Star Tribune 100 report of the best-performing public companies in Minnesota, the Top Workplaces ranking 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.

Star Tribune Publisher Michael J. Klingensmith said, “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.”

“Our entire team at Versique is proud to be recognized as one of Minnesota’s top workplaces for the 3rd year in a row,” said Tony Sorensen, CEO of Versique and Parqa Marketing. “As an executive search and recruiting company, it’s always been a goal of ours to foster an internal culture of collaboration and continuous improvement. This award validates that we’ve continued to build a world-class team that’s always focused on winning through service and trust.”

“I’m incredibly grateful for everyone at our office and thank each member for providing their honest feedback in the survey.”

On behalf of the entire Versique team, thank you, Star Tribune, for naming us a Top Workplace for 2021. We are extremely thankful to receive this award and feel very honored. We’re already looking forward to 2022’s survey to hopefully make it 4 years in a row!
