More than two dozen companies in the Corridor have been named to the Des Moines Register's annual list of Top Iowa Workplaces, released earlier this week.
The Top Workplaces list recognizes companies based solely on the opinions of employees gathered through an anonymous survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics LLP, a research firm specializing in organizational health and employee engagement. Employees are asked to give their opinion on the direction of the company, the execution of work, leaders' understanding of company activities, and how they relate to the higher purpose or mission of the organization. Employers are then categorized and ranked in three size categories based on the survey results.
Corridor companies making the list of top small companies included Clickstop Inc. (No. 5), New York Life - Cedar Rapids (No. 30), Marco Inc. (No. 33), Innovative Software Engineering (No. 38), AW Welt Ambrisco Insurance (No. 44) and the city of Washington (No. 57).
Top midsized companies in the Corridor included MediRevv (No. 3), Van Meter Inc. (No. 4), University of Iowa Community Credit Union (No. 6), MidWestOne Bank (No. 7), GE Capital (No. 11), Washington Community School District (No. 12), Honkamp Krueger PC (No. 13), West Bank (No. 16), Grant Wood Area Education Agency (No. 17), Stanley Consultants (No. 23), Solon Community School District (No. 28) and GEICO (No. 29).
