Grinnell Mutual Top Workplace

Grinnell Mutual Reinsurance Company was named to the Des Moines Register’s Top Workplaces for 2015, one of 13 companies that have made the list for five years running.

The honor was announced in the September 13 issue of the Des Moines Sunday Register. The Register, in partnership with WorkplaceDynamics, ranked Grinnell Mutual the seventh best large company (500 or more employees) to work for in the state.

“On behalf of our 700 employees, Grinnell Mutual is pleased to be recognized as one of Iowa’s Top Workplaces for a fifth consecutive year,” said President and CEO Larry Jansen. “The designation reflects what employees think about working for Grinnell Mutual and about each other.

“We are focused on making this a place where employees feel good about coming to work each day and I aim to continually reinforce the fact that our employees are the most important asset we have in this company. You have to take care of the people who do the work each day.”

The Register and WorkplaceDynamics evaluated the survey responses from participating employers with at least 35 employees. The 150 Top Workplaces were categorized by the size of the business and chosen based on employee feedback.

In the past two years, Grinnell Mutual has added an on-site health clinic, a fitness facility for employees and their families, and in June dedicated the new 33,000-square-foot Bartelt Conference and Education Center for employee and customer training and events.
