DGR Engineering was represented by Patrick Deering last week in Washington, D.C. The purpose of the trip was to meet with Senators concerning federal funding allocation for the Rural Water Program for five authorized rural water projects funded by the Bureau of Reclamation.

DGR Engineering (DGR) has been selected for a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Des Moines Register. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“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 are gratified that the employee survey confirms what we already believe…that DGR Engineering is a great place to work,” said Blair Metzger, CEO of DGR. “The leadership of the firm is committed to fostering its cultural values of ownership, opportunity, integrity, and discipline. Our staff members who live in Iowa, South Dakota, and Minnesota embody our company’s values, and the company in turn gives its employees an opportunity to do meaningful work for a great group of clients throughout the Upper Midwest. This award confirms that our goal of being an employer of choice is being realized.”
“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement that organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
