THE DES MOINES REGISTER NAMES U.S. CELLULAR A WINNER OF STATE OF IOWA 2017 TOP WORKPLACES AWARD
DES MOINES, Iowa, Sept. 18, 2017 — U.S. Cellular has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Des Moines Register. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
"At U.S. Cellular, our main priority is ensuring that our customers have an excellent experience whether they visit one of our stores, call in to our Customer Care team or explore our website," said Mike Adams, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Iowa and Nebraska. "Our Iowa associates work hard and take this priority to heart, and we are honored and fortunate to have access to a diverse and skilled workforce throughout the state to ensure that we can live up to the standards we have set for ourselves."
"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it's all about fancy perks and benefits," said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. "But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day – the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what's most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it's going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn't have a shot at being named a Top Workplace."
U.S. Cellular has approximately 800 associates in Iowa. It is home to one of the company's four Customer Care Centers and 38 company-owned retail stores. To learn more about working at U.S. Cellular, visit uscellular.jobs.
