Columbus CEO Magazine Names Friendship Village of Columbus A Winner of the Columbus Metro Area 2016 Top Workplaces Award
Friendship Village of Columbus has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by the Columbus C.E.O. Magazine. 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.”
Friendship Village of Columbus is very honored to receive this recognition. It’s an incredible testament to the organization to have the employees provide this designation to Friendship Village of Columbus. We owe this award to the amazing team who has reciprocated what the organization means to them and to our residents. If there was an award for “Top Work Team,” the Friendship Village of Columbus team would certainly take first place. Thank you, sincerely, to the staff and residents of Friendship Village of Columbus.
“Friendship Village of Columbus is extremely thrilled to receive this award. We are so grateful for the exceptional employees and staff that recognized our organization. We owe all of our success to their dedication and passion for our residents. Thank you!”
– Lisa Burkhart, Executive Director of Friendship Village of Columbus
