MaxYield Cooperative Receives 2018 Top Workplaces Award

WEST BEND, IA, September 17, 2018 – MaxYield Cooperative has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Des Moines Register. The award is based solely on feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, connection, and more.

“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’re excited to be honored again as a Top Workplace employer,” said Keith Heim, MaxYield’s CEO. “Recognition like this reaffirms MaxYield’s commitment to providing our team members with the opportunity to succeed and create a company that performs at its best, too.”

“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.”

MaxYield has received the Top Workplace award each of the last three years and four times overall.

Palo Alto County 4-H Membership Dues Decreased

Julie Naig, Palo Alto County Extension youth coordinator, accepts a contribution from MaxYield that will decrease the cost of 4-H membership.

MaxYield Cooperative recently presented Palo Alto County Extension and Outreach with a contribution aimed at decreasing the cost of enrollment in 4-H youth programs.

“We are continuing our support of local 4-H and commitment to our youth,” said Chad Meyer, MaxYield Client Relations Director. “Recently, we presented a contribution for $10.00 per 4-H member in order to decrease the cost of 4-H membership.”

Meyer said the cooperative has two goals in providing the program. “First, we want to make 4-H an affordable youth program for local families, especially families that have multiple children enrolled. Secondly, by paying a portion of each 4-H member’s enrollment fee, we are able to continue our mission in supporting 4-H so that each member benefits.”

The cooperative contributed over $1400 to Palo Alto County Extension and Outreach and will contribute more than $18,000 to 4-H in seven Iowa counties annually.

“We believe that 4-H is one of the cornerstones in developing youth and 4-H provides an excellent foundation to build strong families. 4-H also provides a great way for young people to learn more about agriculture and its exciting future,” commented Meyer.
