Express Logistics, Inc. has been awarded a 2015 Top Workplaces honor by the Des Moines Register. Express Logistics was named as the #21 top workplace in Iowa for the Small Business category.

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.”

“Since the founding of Express Logistics, we have maintained a strong focus on our people. And as we continue to grow, we concentrate on our core values and support our people with the proper training and resources,” says Chad Rubner, president and owner of Express Logistics. “Being named a Top Workplace shows that we are doing it right. Knowing that we compare to the very best, and that this is through the direct feedback of our employees, is a great accomplishment.”
