“I enjoy working at Hagie because I feel I add value and that value is appreciated outside the form of a paycheck. I also enjoy the life values instilled in the company. The combination makes me feel like an owner and currently I am just an intern. The focus on attitude is HUGE in my opinion, and others as well, being it is the focus at many Monday meetings and e-mails. I was told when hired that Hagie will change me. My initial thought was I am a pretty good guy, do what I say, stay accountable for what I can be, be mindful of others, etc. what else could there be? This positive outlook and being around others that share that positive attitude is contagious. Even in frustrating times, which we all have, having a positive outlook really changed my attitude as a person for the better. It is amazing what something as simple as a smile or a wave can do for a person. The people I surround myself outside of Hagie have noticed this in me and the positive outlook has affected them as well. Coming from a negative work environment made it hard for me to get outside my head and accept life challenges. For me this negativity was a poison and it affected me for the worse. I am so grateful to have joined the Hagie team and even though many may not realize, they have helped me drown that poison, accept challenges and become the person I am capable of being. Regardless of the length of time at Hagie, I will forever be grateful for the opportunity and what the Hagie family has given me. To someone wanting to join the Hagie family, if you truly buy in and accept the challenge, be ready to work harder than you think you can work, do more than you think you can do; be better than you think you can be. This is an expectation that you will reach for yourself along with all the family members that have each other’s backs at Hagie Manufacturing.”

Top Work Places 2013 Hagie Manufacturing Company

Top Mid-sized Companies in Iowa
Top Work Places 2013

We are excited to share that Hagie Mfg. has ranked as the #6 Top Workplace in Iowa! Hagie Mfg.’s continuous efforts to enhance culture have heightened overall employee happiness and contributed a boost in position from the #19 Top Iowa Workplace in 2011, then #11 workplace in 2012.

How did Hagie receive this honor? The Des Moines Register and Workplace Dynamics, a research partner, takes a targeted approach to learn what is most important to employees while conducting the Iowa Top 100 Workplaces survey. The surveys showed that Iowa employees put the highest importance on believing their company is going in the right direction and feeling appreciated at work. They want to have confidence in their boss and in their future at the company. They want to feel like they are part of something meaningful. Pay and benefits also are important to employees, but they scored near the bottom of the list. Workplace Dynamics then asked employees to rate their employers on those priorities. Those organizations that scored high on important statements made the list of Iowa’s Top 100 Workplaces. These rankings are based on employees’ evaluations, making this honor even more special.
