For the second year in a row, DGR Engineering has been awarded a 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 happy that, for the second year in a row, we have confirmation from our employees that DGR Engineering is a great place to work,” said Blair Metzger, President of DGR Engineering. “The 130 employees of the company who live in the tri-state area live out every day our motto of providing “Trusted. Professional. Solutions.” by doing meaningful work for a great group of clients throughout the Upper Midwest. We continually strive to be an employer of choice for this region, and we are gratified that we are fulfilling that goal.”
“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.”
