The Des Moines Register Names Peoples Bank a Winner of the Iowa 2018 Top Workplaces Award
Peoples Bank has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Des Moines Register. The list is based solely on employee 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, just to name a few.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
“We are so honored to once again be named a Top Workplace in Iowa,” said Peoples Bank CEO Al Vermeer. “To me, it is simply a reflection of the dedication of all of our employees to our Vision, Mission and Values. We could all make a living a thousand different places doing a million different things, but we choose to do so at Peoples Bank because we feel that we positively impact our communities in all that we do!”
“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
