Long recognized as an insurance and agricultural hub, Des Moines has been quietly reinventing itself in recent years as a Midwestern mecca for the performing arts, dining, entertainment and other cultural attractions.
Des Moines was also the home of Allied Insurance which, upon becoming part of the Nationwide family, introduced our independent agency system. Today, Nationwide employs more than 4,000 associates in Des Moines, in exciting career fields such as customer service, finance, marketing, IT, HR and legal.
Nationwide is a leading contributor to the Des Moines community and has partnerships with several local organizations, including:
- Central Iowa Shelter and Services – The Nationwide Foundation provided a $750,000 gift to this organization, allowing them to build a new homeless shelter in downtown Des Moines.
- Food Bank of Iowa – Nationwide associates collected more than 30,000 items for the Backpack Buddies program, which supports nearly 600 kids in greater Des Moines.
- Youth Emergency Services and Shelters – Nationwide’s associates volunteer at the shelter, helping with projects and spending time with children.
