Housby Received Third Place Overall For Top Iowa Workplace For Mid-Size Companies

Des Moines, Iowa (September 12, 2019) – Housby received third place overall for Top Iowa Workplace for Mid-Size Companies. This award is based solely on the feedback that Housby employees offered through an employee survey. More than 130 employees participated, which is very unique to have such great participation. This year only 135 companies made the Top Workplace list, and Housby ranking third is a great accomplishment.

From The Des Moines Register, “Housby believes the company’s family-first attitude is part of what has kept it among Iowa’s top workplaces for six consecutive years.”
