NORTHWEST BANK EARNS TOP WORKPLACE AWARD BY THE DES MOINES REGISTER FOR THE FIFTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR!
on Monday, September 16, 2019
Northwest Bank has been awarded a 2019 Top Workplaces honor by the Des Moines Register. The Top Workplaces are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Energage, 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.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition.” says 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.”
Joe Conover, President of Northwest Bank commented, “Receiving the Top Workplaces award for five consecutive years is a fantastic honor. I’m proud to share that our organization is filled with talented employees who are given the opportunity to grow and develop their skills, encouraged to share ideas for process improvement, continually provide first class service and go out of their way to support and improve the communities in which we serve and live in. Our management’s focus on attracting and retaining the best people to work for our company results in becoming an Employer of Choice. We ask ourselves, how can we add value to our employees and what do we do as a company that is unique? We look for people who are team-oriented, engaged and community focused, and who are interested in growing personally and professionally.”
“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.”
Northwest Financial Corp. is a family owned organization led by Neal and Dwight Conover and includes two bank charters, Northwest Bank and First National Bank in Creston, and Northwest Wealth Management, LLC.
