Fourth in four: Grinnell Mutual leads Iowa businesses as one of the best places to work
Grinnell Mutual Reinsurance Company is among the top five best large companies to work for in Iowa, according to the Iowa Top Workplace listing in the September 21, 2014, edition of the Des Moines Sunday Register. The company ranks as the state’s fourth top workplace in the large business category of 500 employees or more. This is the fourth consecutive year for Grinnell Mutual to be named an Iowa Top Workplace.
“I am thrilled for our company to be named the fourth best large business to work for in Iowa. This award reflects positively on our employees and how they feel about working here,” said President and CEO Larry Jansen.
The Des Moines Register, in partnership with WorkplaceDynamics, ranked Iowa’s businesses based on feedback from more than 33,000 employees. Grinnell Mutual is one of only two insurance companies to rank among the top five businesses in the small, medium, and large company categories. In addition, Jansen received the leadership award from among top executives in the large company category. His selection was based on comments received from employee responses on the survey.
Last year Grinnell Mutual opened both a free onsite health clinic and fitness center for employees and family members on the Grinnell Mutual campus. Construction is currently underway for a 33,000 square foot conference center for employee and customer training.
“I can’t say it enough. Our employees are Grinnell Mutual’s most important asset. They are the reason this company is what it is today,” said Jansen. “We are committed to making this a workplace where they enjoy coming to work each day.”
