ChildServe has received a 2021 Top Workplaces USA award. This national recognition celebrates companies that make the world a better place to work by prioritizing a people-centered culture and giving employees a voice.

 “We are delighted to be recognized with this award, which is based solely on the feedback our team members provided through an employee engagement survey,” said ChildServe CEO Teri Wahlig, MD. “When employees know that that their voice and well-being are valued­, they face challenges with creativity, and they foster a healthy culture where people are excited to come to work. Their dedication to our mission is key to making ChildServe a Top Workplace.”

For team members like Marie Porter, Inpatient Unit Clinical Manager, ChildServe’s positive culture is rooted in our shared mission, vision and values.

“Although I find all of our values important, I will just share my favorite – care. Care to me equals love,” said Marie. “While it is a short, simple statement, it means so much. This is the foundation of what makes ChildServe what it is. This is what I think people are talking about when they say, ‘ChildServe just feels different.’”

ChildServe is among 570 winners nationwide, and just 23 employers in Iowa to earn the distinction. ChildServe was recognized as a winner in the non-profit category, company size 500 to 999 employees. You can view our company profile here.
