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.
