MILWAUKEE - One company in Wisconsin got on a new list of the best companies to work for in America.

Baird got the No. 14 spot in the Fortune magazine poll.

The company improved from its 21st ranking in 2012.

"This is our 10th year in a row," Baird head of human resources Leslie Dixon told Newsradio 620 WTMJ's Jodi Becker.

"It's helped us over the years with clients who appreciate what it means.  It clearly helps with associates, recruitment and retention.  It's great to have a culture where there's caring, teamwork and we hold integrity very high, and our focus is on clients, and that we haven't lost that focus in any way through stuff that's hit our industry."

Baird, based in Milwaukee, gives all of its hourly and salaried employees profit-sharing contributions.
