Dupaco Community Credit Union has been named a “Top Workplace” in 2021 by the Des Moines Register. The member-owned financial cooperative ranked No. 5 in the large employer category.
The Register recognized 130 Iowa companies as a “Top Workplace” based solely on feedback provided by those who work there. Dupaco has garnered a “Top Workplace” recognition each year that it has participated in the Des Moines Register survey: 2021, 2019, 2016, 2011.
In addition to the organizational recognition, Dupaco President/CEO Joe Hearn was recognized with the 2021 Leadership Award. This award is given to a leader based on responses from their company employees during the annual survey.
The Register’s research partner, Energage, LLC, surveys employees at participating workplaces and then ranks the employers based on the results. Companies are ranked in small, medium, and large categories. Employees evaluate everything from their work environment to their organization’s leadership. “Top Workplaces” are not only better places to work but are more likely to be more successful than peer organizations, the Register asserts.
