On Sept. 12, 2019, Lessing-Flynn (LF) was named as one of 135 Iowa Top Workplaces for 2019 by the Des Moines Register.

Along with being named a Top Workplace, employers are also ranked among other companies and organizations of similar size. LF ranked in the top third of the 65 companies recognized as a Top Workplace in the small company category (35-149 employees).

“We win awards for the work we do for clients, but being named a Top Workplace in Iowa is really special because it says a lot about the culture and values we have worked so hard to promote among our team,” said Tom Flynn, president of LF. “You can’t make a great workplace without having great people. We’re very proud of this recognition.”

Top Workplaces are based on an employee feedback survey created by Energage, a Philadelphia-based company that has 13 years of culture research experience. The survey itself is comprised of 24 questions that work to paint a comprehensive picture of workplace culture using the following categories:

  • Alignment
  • Connection
  • Effectiveness
  • My Manager
  • Engagement
  • Leadership
  • The Basics (e.g., pay, benefits, flexibility, training, expectations)

Among all LF team members’ survey answers, a handful of cultural elements ranked especially high: culture, people, work/life balance, investment in training and development, the LF benefits package, values and transparency.
