Family Centers Named Top Workplace in Western Connecticut
For the seventh time, Family Centers has been named a “Top Workplace” based on the results of an independent employee survey sponsored by Hearst Connecticut Media.
“Ensuring our organization is a place where employees feel valued, challenged and rewarded for their work has always been a priority,” said Family Centers’ CEO Bob Arnold. “The fact that we were listed a ‘Top Workplace’ is a testament to the dedication of the 225 employees who make Family Centers a trusted community resource.”
Hundreds of companies throughout Fairfield, New Haven and Litchfield Counties were invited to participate in the 2019 survey, which was conducted by research partner Energage, LLC. Only 50 organizations were awarded Top Workplaces 2019 honors in Western Connecticut.
The anonymous survey measured several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection. Employees were also asked to assess the organization’s values and leaders; how the organization communicates its goals; opportunities for training and progression; assessment of the workplace atmosphere and environment; quality of management; and pay and benefits.
