EMC Named a Top Workplace in Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa (Sept. 17, 2018)—EMC Insurance Companies has 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, (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection.

“Our team members are what make us successful, and we want them to know they are valued,” says EMC Senior Vice President – Chief Human Resource Officer Beth Nigut. “A positive, healthy and balanced work environment allows our team members to thrive. This Top Workplace recognition affirms our commitment to helping team members bring their best to work every day.”

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” says Energage CEO Doug Claffey. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results.”
