LE MARS, Iowa -- Forbes magazine released its annual listing of America’s Best Employers and Le Mars-based Wells Enterprises Inc. is included.
“This is an honor to be named to the Best Employer list,” said Mike Wells, president and CEO of Wells Enterprises, in a release. “As a family-owned company, I take pride in knowing that there are over 2,800 people choosing Wells as their employer. Our employees truly make Wells a great place to work.”
This is the first year Wells has been named to the list. The recognition follows a string of recent awards for the 105-year-old ice cream company. In January, Brian Kraus, director of food safety and regulatory compliance, was recognized by the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) with the Food Safety Leadership Award. In April, Wells was named a finalist for Technology Association of Iowa’s Prometheus Award for Manufacturing Technology Company of the Year, and most recently, Wells earned honors at IDFA’s 2018 Ice Cream Technology Conference by placing in the top three for both Most Innovative Ice Cream Flavor and Most Innovative Novelties competition.
Forbes America’s Best Employer list is created using an independent survey by Statista, which asks 30,000 U.S. workers 35 questions about their workplace and employer. Employers cannot apply for consideration to be placed on the list.
