KCL is a Des Moines Register Top Workplace

Top Workplace for Benefits and No. 4 Small Company was awarded to KCL Engineering from the Des Moines Register's annual survey of Iowa businesses. "I'm extremely proud that our benefits put us at the top of all 135 large, medium, and small companies ranked this year," said company founder, Kris Kunze. "I established this company on a family-first foundation, and it's validating after 11 years we've been able to keep in place the type of benefits that employees find exceptional." Fellow company leader, James Deeds, knew KCL had a shot at recognition in its first year applying. "Our product is our people," he said. "We treat them with respect and give them the freedom to do their job without a lot of restrictions."

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)
