Winner of the State of Iowa 2022 Top Workplaces Award

Ankeny, Iowa, September 26, 2022 — For the sixth consecutive year, Baker Group has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2022 honor by Iowa Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback measuring 15 culture drivers that are critical to success of any organization.

The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC., a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few.

“One of our core values is care about people. It’s a huge part of our culture,” says Gary Bridgewater, Baker Group’s CEO. “We want everyone who works for Baker Group to know they are cared for and know that their work is appreciated and that they are valued. In everything we do, we want our team to feel like they are part of the Baker Group family.”

“We are proud to continue to be honored as a top workplace. Six years in a row is an incredible accomplishment.”
