KCL Engineering Recognized As #2 Top Workplace



Hot off the press!


KCL Engineering has been recognized as the #2 Top Workplace for 2022 by the Des Moines Register.


Why is recognition as a winner of the Top Workplace Award so meaningful?

Because it's based entirely on the feedback received from employees and their personal career experiences as part of the KCL Engineering team.


This is KCL Engineering’s fourth year being recognized as a Des Moines Register Top Workplace and the company's highest ranking to date. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, and gives employees a voice in shaping the perception of KCL Engineering.


“The Top Workplace Award is a true honor it means we’re successfully bringing to life our values and commitment to being people-first. KCL Engineering’s strong culture has proven to be a distinguishable force, and we take pride in the attitude, effort and energy our dedicated staff bring to KCL every day.” ⁣- Neil Smeenk, Principal, Des Moines Office Lead

For the third consecutive year, KCL Engineering took home the award for Best Benefits. The designation is given to one company that has demonstrated a commitment to employee well-being, health and welfare that exceeds standard practices. KCL’s stellar suite of fully-paid health insurance (even for families), flexible scheduling, workplace mobility, generous PTO, 401K contributions, and family care benefits are just a few of the employee advantages that helped KCL Engineering place at the very top of this category.


“Providing an industry-leading benefit package to employees is an intentional focus at KCL Engineering. It’s our belief that the best job benefits are those tailored to meet the needs of employees at different stages of their careers. We want everyone to feel healthy, enjoy time away, and have financial resources to navigate life. We’ve found that when our team members feel supported and are given the freedom to put family needs first, they respond by bringing a high-level of engagement and innovation to their project teams.” - Danielle Manternach, Employee Experience Manager

Founded in 2008 with the pledge of creating a business model in which people are the priority, KCL Engineering has thrived as a flexible, friendly, and collaborative workplace driven by selfless teamwork. Proof that taking on big challenges has its rewards, KCL has averaged a 40% staff growth rate per year since its inception and strives to open the door to even more talented engineers in its future.


KCL Engineering proudly raises a glass to this employee-led achievement and looks forward to furthering the compelling mission of Top Workplace excellence.
