CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, Sept. 17, 2018 – Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust (CRBT) has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Des Moines Register. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

Larry Helling, President and CEO said, “This distinction is a direct reflection of our employees’ commitment to CRBT and our mission of building relationships. It is a privilege to work with such a dynamic group of people whose continuous hard work and dedication make CRBT a celebrated place to work, and therefore, a great place for our clients to bank. This award is a representation of our commitment to hiring the best people.”

“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
