FOX Engineering Associates, Inc. Receives Iowa 2016 TOP WORKPLACES Award

{Ames, IA} FOX Engineering Associates, Inc. has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Des Moines Register. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey, administered by Workplace Dynamics, LLC. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection.

Keith Hobson, president of FOX Engineering: “This award is confirmation for us that our employees are our greatest asset. We appreciate them. They are the reason we rise above the competition in helping cities provide clean water. We want to attract and retain the very best people so we are careful with our choices. And we are careful to help them see they are part of something very important.”

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
