Human Resources

At the City of Indianola, our mission is to provide our residents with high-quality services.  The most valuable asset to help make that happen is our employees.  

To further our mission, we seek to hire high-quality people for our team, (all-stars, if you will) and take care of them.  Employees enjoy flexible work schedules, generous benefits and time off, career growth opportunities, staff appreciation events, and a robust safety program to make sure everyone gets home to their families safely every day.   

We listen to our employees, too. Through employee engagement surveys, individual appointments and group Q&A meetings, we provide the tools, training and support our all-stars need to shine at their jobs.

Most importantly, we know our team members by name.

To your left, you can find detailed information about our benefits.  Above, check out pictures from some employee appreciation events. Below, take a minute to read through some of our team members’ stories, and find out why they enjoy working for the City of Indianola.
