MaxYield Cooperative Receives 2017 Top Workplaces Award

WEST BEND, IA, September 18, 2017 – MaxYield Cooperative has been awarded a 2017 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.”

MaxYield Cooperative invests in its team members through internships, and trainee programs, said MaxYield CEO Keith Heim. “We also invest heavily in our team and their well-being through education, training, wellness and industry recognized safety programs.”

“We are proud to receive this honor as a top Iowa workplace for the third time,” Heim went on to say. “Once again, a very large percentage of our team members responded to the survey and we are again excited that they overwhelming said MaxYield is a great place to work.”
