AEG named a Top Workplace in Iowa for 2022

On Sept. 25, 2022, AEG was recognized as one of the Top Workplaces in Iowa for 2022 by the Des Moines Register. This award celebrates companies in Iowa that are committed to putting employees first. That’s because Top Workplaces are based solely on an anonymous third-party employee feedback survey that evaluates the company’s leadership, employee connection, engagement and alignment, company flexibility, expectations and effectiveness, and benefits and training.

“This recognition affirms we have something special here at AEG, and that’s because our people make all the difference,” said Tom Swank, CEO. “Our incredibly talented team, from the top-down, cares for our customers, our distribution partners, our communities, our company, and each other, and that is the reason AEG is a top workplace.”

Top Workplaces is the nation’s leading employer recognition program that’s been recognizing outstanding companies since 2006. For more information, visit
