EMC Named Top Workplace in Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa (Sept. 16, 2019)—EMC Insurance Companies has again been named a Top Workplace in Iowa by The Des Moines Register. The list is based solely on team member feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection.

“Just as our policyholders and agents can Count on EMC® to provide exceptional service and products, our team members can count on us to provide a fantastic work environment,” says EMC Senior Vice President–Chief Human Resources Officer Beth Nigut. “We rely on our team members and know that if we take good care of them, they will take good care of our customers. We want them to know they are valued, and we’re committed to helping them bring their best to work each day.”

“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” says Energage CEO Doug Claffey. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage.”
