Two area employers were named among the Top Workplaces in Iowa by the Des Moines Register. The Monroe County Hospital and Clinics and Community 1st Credit Union were both named in the Register’s annual survey of workplaces.

The “Top Workplaces” award is a national initiative to recognize employee-valued workplaces, based on the belief that the most successful organizations are the ones that employees believe in. Several aspects of the workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few. By championing good practices, Top Workplaces are not only better places to work but are also more likely to be successful than peer organizations.

“This designation is tremendously meaningful to us, showing how enthusiastic our team feels about the environment and culture here at MCHC,” said Veronica Fuhs, CEO of MCHC, “and it reflects upon the interactive and highly supportive nature of our employee community. This speaks volumes about how we work, what we do for our patients and the focus we have on high-quality, patient-focused care.”

Fuhs added, “The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits, but to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. We are honored to serve Monroe County residents and surrounding communities. The patients and families at MCHC should feel confident that we have and will continue to recruit highly trained staff that provide quality, patient-centered care and are greatly satisfied with their work environment.”

This award, plus several others recently received by team members at MCHC, signifies the overall change momentum and improvement culture within the organization. “Mission-focused, MCHC has a commitment to its patients, it’s standard of operation, and the perpetual goal of overall high-quality care,” said Fuhs.

Community 1st

The Ottumwa-based credit union with 230 employees and 17 branches was 38th on the list of midsized company employers. C1st was a newcomer for the designation last year.

“For the second year in a row, we are delighted to be named a Top Workplace in Iowa,” said C1st President and CEO Greg Hanshaw. “Moving up a few spots in the ranking is an additional honor. The results of employee survey show we have something special happening here. I’m proud to be part of our enthusiastic team!”

Community 1st Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative with more than $600 million in assets. The credit union has branches in Albia, Amana, Bloomfield, Cedar Rapids, Centerville, Chariton, Fairfield, Grinnell, Indianola, Knoxville, Mount Pleasant, Oskaloosa, Ottumwa, Pella and Washington.
