Monarch Materials Group named to Top Workplaces in Iowa

ADEL, IA September 20, 2016 – MONARCH MATERIALS GROUP, INC has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Des Moines Register. The 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.”

“We are very pleased to be recognized as a Top Workplace in Iowa,” says Dan Higgins, President of Monarch Materials Group.“We strive to provide our employees an engaging place to work and it is very rewarding to see that our efforts are resonating with our team members.” This is Monarch’s first Top Workplaces award.
