Cedar-Rapids based TrueNorth Companies, a privately-held risk management and insurance brokerage firm, has been selected as a 2024 Top Workplace USA award recipient for the third year in a row.

The award was announced June 11 by Top Workplaces USA.

“We aspire to be a career destination where colleagues can find purpose and pursue their fullest potential,” said Samantha Rogers, TrueNorth’s vice president of human resources. “We also make efforts to ensure TrueNorth is a place that nurtures creativity, collaboration and well-being. We firmly believe these commitments grant our colleagues the opportunity to hone their performance and explore what’s possible, both in their careers and personal lives, as a great team can impact both.”

According to a release, Top Workplaces USA celebrates organizations with 150 or more employees “that have built great cultures.”

More than 42,000 organizations were invited to participate in the Top Workplaces USA survey. Winners of the Top Workplaces USA list are chosen based solely on employee feedback gathered through an employee engagement survey, issued by Energage.

“It’s an honor to be acknowledged once again as a Top Workplace nationally, highlighting the exceptionalism, collaboration, and resourcefulness of our TrueNorth team,” said TrueNorth COO Matt Rathje. “This recognition reaffirms our dedication to being the premier career destination for our colleagues, a leader in the communities we serve, and the preferred broker for our clients. Our collective vision and commitment to our colleagues not only propels career advancement but also enhances our firmwide expertise and encourages individual development.”

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Energage CEO Eric Rubino. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”

TrueNorth first received regional recognition as a Top Workplace in the state of Iowa in 2021.

This is the third consecutive year TrueNorth earned national and state recognition from Top Workplaces, ranking 21st among Iowa’s midsize businesses.

TrueNorth has also been recognized with a Top Workplaces industry award in the Financial Services sector, along with National Culture Excellence Awards in the areas of Purpose & Values; Innovation; Work-life Flexibility; and Leadership.
