DES MOINES, Iowa, Sept. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Intoxalock, headquartered in Des Moines, ranks as one of Iowa's top workplaces in 2018. The company ranked 38th out of 50 companies honored in the "Midsized Companies" category (150-499 employees).
"Being named as one of Iowa's Top Places to Work is a huge honor. We believe in what we do and the services we provide, and it's important to us that we hire employees who see this as so much more than just a job. As our growth continues, we make it a priority to ensure each employee knows how much they make a difference and contribute to our overall success," Kimberly Williams, Intoxalock CEO said.
The Des Moines Register annually recognizes companies and organizations in Iowa. In total, 150 companies are being honored as Top Workplaces in Iowa in 2018, out of 1,352 companies that were invited to apply. Companies are ranked based on in-depth survey feedback from employees through The Register's research partner, Energage. This is Des Moines Register's 8th year recognizing Iowa's best places to work.
"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest," says Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. "People often mistakenly assume it's all about fancy perks and benefits. To be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet high standards for a strong workplace culture. Having a good workplace is essential for hiring, retaining and motivating talent."
Intoxalock was first recognized as a Top Place to Work in 2016. In the following years, Company leaders continue to ensure employees feel engaged and appreciated, facilitating a culture of collaboration, innovation and the ability to make a difference.
"Our employees are at the center of what we do, every single day. When we treat our employees well, they pass that on to our customers. It's remarkable watching our Intoxalock team live out our mission of changing lives and helping people through some of their darkest moments every single day," Amanda Sedars, Intoxalock VP of Human Resources said.
