Des Moines Register Names BerganKDV, Now Creative Planning Business Services, an Iowa Top Workplace for 2023

BerganKDV, now Creative Planning Business Services, has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2023 honor by Iowa Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution and connection — just to name a few.

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”

“It’s an honor to be recognized in the Iowa market for our culture and values,” said Dave Hinnenkamp, CEO of Creative Planning Business Services. “Our firm has always believed that standout client service starts with a healthy and productive workplace where teams can do their best work. That belief has allowed us to be a differentiator in the market, even in competitive spaces like Iowa that have many talented organizations that call it home. With Creative Planning’s expanded resources and personnel, our passion and drive to make a difference for our clients and communities has only intensified. I am proud of our teams for cultivating a thriving culture and excited for what the future holds as Creative Planning Business Services.”

After joining forces with Creative Planning, a nationally leading independent wealth management and advisory firm, the team’s presence and headcount within Iowa grew to more than 215 employees across six offices. Creative Planning Business Services makes up the business advisory arm of Creative Planning, which provides clients with a comprehensive suite of services designed to support and empower business owners.
