Company Release - 04/07/2017 06:45:00

LAKEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tallgrass Energy Partners, LP (NYSE:TEP) announced today that it was named one of The Denver Post’s Top Workplaces – the third consecutive year the company has achieved this honor. Top Workplaces List is an annual award honoring the best companies to work for in Colorado.

“This recognition stands apart from other awards we’ve received because it’s based solely on how our employees feel about working at Tallgrass,” said Tallgrass Energy President and CEO David Dehaemers Jr. “The fact that employees gave Tallgrass high marks tells us we’re on track to deliver the kind of inclusive and rewarding environment our employees expect of us. We have a great team of people across our company – not just in Colorado – and I’m extremely proud of them.”

Across Tallgrass, employees ranked the company highest in areas under Alignment, which measures employees’ belief that the company is moving in the right direction and operates consistent with strong values and ethics; Connection, which measures how well-informed and appreciated employees feel; and Effectiveness, which measures how efficiently the company executes its business plan.

The Top Workplaces are determined based on an employee survey conducted each year by WorkplaceDynamics, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest,” said WorkplaceDynamics CEO Doug Claffey. “To be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to employees is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
