Catholic Charities Corporation has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Plain Dealer. This is the third year in a row Catholic Charities has received the top distinction.
The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits. says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.
Catholic Charities employs over 700 individuals throughout the eight counties of the Diocese of Cleveland (Ashland, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Summit and Wayne). The organization offers a myriad of programs in areas such as: children and families, older adults, persons with disabilities, persons with emergency and transitional needs, chemical dependency counseling, family centers and day care programs, employment and training services, and community-based family services. Additionally, Catholic Charities advocates for the poor and the marginalized, administers to the sick and incarcerated, develops affordable market-rate housing options, and often partners with Parishes through the Diocese on programming and services. Employees consistently note that a strong sense of mission and values is what makes Catholic Charities a top workplace.
The Plain Dealer and cleveland.com published the complete list of Top Workplaces on June 21st. For more information about the Top Workplaces lists and WorkplaceDynamics, please visit www.topworkplaces.com and www.workplacedynamics.com.
