Kinzler Named a Top Workplace AGAIN!

Kinzler Construction Services, a family and employee-owned construction subcontractor, was again named one of the Top Workplaces in Iowa. This is the second year in a row Kinzler’s employees have recognized the company’s dynamic workplace culture.

The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on responses to a survey of Kinzler Construction Services employees administered by Energage, 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.

“It’s a great honor when two years running, employees rate Kinzler Construction Services as one of the best places to work,” said Tanner Kinzler, President & CEO. “We’re serious about our Team Member-Focused approach, which means we’re a workplace where all people, programs, processes, and systems are focused on helping employees grow and advance their careers. We’re creating a culture where positive people excel, safety is #1, employees have a voice on the team and they control their advancement and earning potential.”

Kinzler Construction Services recently launched their company ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan), which means team members actually have ownership in the business.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition.  Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage.  “Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.  Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy.  It’s an achievement organizations have worked for, and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage.  It’s a big deal.”

Kinzler is currently hiring team members. For a complete list of job openings, visit our careers page.

While the thought of having difficult conversations may fill most of us with dread, avoiding conflict is a big mistake. In fact, such conversations are absolutely crucial to an organization’s health and overall success. Sure, the tension may feel high—but ignoring incompetence or bad behavior only creates alienation and a culture of mistrust.

In this video, Kinzler Chief Talent Officer Brian Schwartze shares practical ways to defuse the situation and achieve a successful resolution.
