(Undated) -- Des Moines Area Community College has been named by Forbes Magazine as the best place to work in Iowa. The Number "One" ranking is up from the #9 ranking last year from Forbes. The rankings are based on a survey of more than 80-thousand employees working for large employers.

“Iowa has great companies who work together for the betterment of Iowa and their employees,” said DMACC President Rob Denson. “DMACC is proud to be recognized for the hard work of our faculty and staff, all to the benefit of our students and the companies who hire them, and the communities where they live.”

DMACC Human Resources Executive Director Jenifer Owenson echoed Denson’s comments that DMACC is a best place to work because of the dedication and commitment of its employees.

“The DMACC HR Department has a vision of becoming a ‘preferred employer,’” Owenson said. “Recognitions, like the one from Forbes, indicate that we are collectively on the path to becoming a successful, diverse, and quality workplace where employees are willing and able to carry out DMACC’s mission.  We’re well recognized because of that reputation.It’s enhanced our ability to attract and hire top talent.”

University of Iowa Health care was second, followed by Emmerson Electric, Principal Financial Group, and Deere & Company. The State of Iowa came in 6th.
