There isn’t a secret recipe for our 85 years of success. We didn’t jump from one get rich quick scheme to the next. We believe in simple things. Like safety, service, and quality. We believe in people. Our people got us here, and our people will always be our top priority.

Join our proud team — a Des Moines Register Top Workplace in Iowa the last six years and counting!

take a look at our Tenets of Success:

Path 142@2x

Act like an owner.

Not just a job description and never just a number; we are leaders, whether by title or by contribution, who take responsibility for our successes and failures.


Be interested. Stay interested.

We commit to breaking down traditional barriers and punching through walls that haunt our industry to learn about each other’s roles, needs, and successes. As a culture and as a company, we rise or fall together.


Create change. Start with yourself.

As individuals, we lead change through proactive communication and action rather than waiting for change to come to us.


Seek new perspectives.

We believe better ideas can come from unlikely places. Through cross-functional teaming, we bring fresh perspectives to our culture, business, and brands.


Fail fast. Learn fast.

Innovation doesn’t come without some pain. We fearlessly forge ahead with an accelerated learning curve to deliver better ideas and implement better practices.

The Perks of Being NLM Family

Work Life Balance

Happy employees are productive employees. That’s why we offer summer hours, work from home, flex-time, volunteer time off, and paid time off, so our employees can enjoy life away from the office, on their terms.


Happy employees aren’t enough, we want healthy employees too. Our medical, dental, and vision plans, wellness program, gym membership, and company-matched HSA contributions give our employees (and their families!) the tools they need to live healthy lives.

Compensation and Awards

Hard work should be rewarded. Period. Our competitive wages, profit sharing program, 401K match, safety incentives, and tuition reimbursement program let our employees know we value their time and contribution.

Through UnitedHealthcare, UMR and HealthSCOPE Benefits creates and publishes the Machine-Readable Files on behalf of New Leader Manufacturing.
