Newz Group client shout out: Iowa Donor Network

By: Newz Group Staff

Newz Group would like to offer its heartfelt congratulations to the Iowa Donor Network for once again being ranked one of the best Iowa workplaces in the small employer category of Iowa’s Top Work Places 2013.

The rankings, compiled and reported by WorkplaceDynamics and the Des Moines Register, were published in the September 22 edition of the Des Moines Register. A total of 179 Iowa workplaces were surveyed, and the surveys reflect employee evaluations from more than 33,000 employee respondents.

Iowa Donor Network, a nonprofit agency located in North Liberty, Iowa, has regional offices in Johnston and Sioux City, IA. This philanthropic organization employs 124 Iowans in its three locations, and has been featured on the Register’s Top Workplaces list for the past three years. The mission of the Iowa Donor Network is stated succinctly on their website: “As Iowa’s sole organ procurement agency, we facilitate both organ and tissue recovery and serve as the state’s primary contact for organ, tissue and eye donation.” The Iowa Donor Network works closely with its affiliate, the Iowa Donor Registry and with the Iowa Lions Club Eye Bank to connect organ and tissue donors with Iowans in need of organ transplant.

Founded in 1994, the Iowa Donor Network is a sterling example of an Iowa employer guided by principle rather than profit. Newz Group is proud to work with the Iowa Donor Network, providing media monitoring services tailored to their specific needs.
