CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – September 25, 2017 – Two respected Iowa publications have once again honored CBE Companies Inc. (CBE) as one of the top employers in the state.

In its home community of Waterloo-Cedar Falls, CBE was named “Employer of Choice”, while The Des Moines Register ranked CBE number 25 among all Iowa workplaces in the large business category.

For 10 years the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier has consistently recognized CBE and its subsidiaries as top employers in the Cedar Valley.

The newspaper solicits nominations from employees throughout the region, then relies on a panel of business leaders to select the winners. The employees who nominated CBE spoke of a company that cares about its workers, empowers them to perform and encourages them to grow with many opportunities to grow and enhance their careers.

The Iowa Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.”

Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

Employees are the biggest point of pride, said Chad Benson, President and CEO. “There are a lot of great companies in the Cedar Valley and across the state of Iowa, and it means a lot that we’re seen like this through the eyes of our employees,” said Benson.
