Iowa Top Workplaces
#8 Small Business in Iowa

Express Logistics has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 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.”

Express Logistics ranked #8 in the small business category; this is the fifth consecutive year that Express Logistics has been included on this list. Only 65 Iowa companies made the list this year.

“To be named a Top Workplace for five years running is such an honor,” said Chad Rubner, Express Logistics CEO. Everything we do reflects our strong values, and I believe that’s what sets us apart. We focus on hiring people that fit our core values: own it, hustle, do what’s right and never quit learning. The fact that this honor is based solely on employee feedback shows that we are truly meeting those goals.”

“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.”
