Family Centers Named a Top Workplace
For the fifth time in the past seven years, Family Centers was named one of Western Connecticut’s “Top Workplaces” based on the results of an independent employee survey sponsored by Hearst Media Services.
“Ensuring our organization is a place where employees feel valued, challenged and rewarded for their work has always been a priority,” said Family Centers’ President Bob Arnold. “The fact that we were listed a ‘Top Workplace’ is a testament to the dedication of the 200 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 2016 survey, which was conducted by independent consulting firm Workplace Dynamics LLC. Only 45 were selected as “Top Workplaces.”
Family Centers previously won the Top Workplaces award in 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2016.
The 24-question survey asked employees 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.
