EveryStep is one of Iowa’s best employers, according to the Des Moines Register’s 2022 Top Workplaces awards. EveryStep ranked 19th among the top 50. This is the 10th time EveryStep has earned this award. EveryStep also received a special award recognizing high positive employee feedback regarding finding meaningfulness in their work.

In addition, EveryStep has been named “Best Nonprofit: Runner Up” and EveryStep president and CEO Tray Wade has been named “Best CEO: Runner Up” by the Des Moines Business Record. This is the fifth time EveryStep has been honored in the Best Nonprofit category and second time Wade has been  honored in the CEO category.

“EveryStep is honored to receive the Best of Des Moines and Top Workplaces awards and I am humbled by my personal recognition,” said Wade. “Our leadership team and staff across Iowa work together to empower individuals, support families and strengthen communities. These recognitions are a direct reflection of the dedication and perseverance of our employees.”

The Top Workplaces list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous, third-party survey administered by Energage, LLC. The “Best of Des Moines” annual survey is conducted by the Des Moines Business Record via an online open-ended poll, where participants vote for the businesses, people and events that they think are the “Best of Des Moines” in dozens of categories – including best non-profit and best CEO.

EveryStep has been offering non-profit care and support for Iowans since 1908. Today, EveryStep offers at least one of its 30-plus programs in each of Iowa’s 99 counties. Staff and programs provide support and education to young moms; assistance to immigrants and refugees; wellness services to workplaces and communities; in-home care to people who are ill, injured or facing the end of life; and compassionate support to families during times of grief and loss.
