Lord’s Place Wins Employer Prize

This Labor Day, employees at the Lord’s Place have a lot to celebrate. As an employer, it has been named one of Florida’s best companies to work for by Florida Trend magazine for the third consecutive year.

The Lord’s Place was ranked seventh among best midsized companies to work for and again was the only nonprofit ranked among Top 100 Best Companies.

In addition, the Lord’s Place was named a winner of the 2016 When Work Works Award honoring companies that excel at creating effective workplaces.

“We are so pleased for our agency and our employees to be honored with these awards,” CEO Diana Stanley said. “We really do love our work at the Lord’s Place. These recognitions are a tribute to our commitment to our mission.”

The Lord’s Place Social Enterprise Life Coach Dot Graham is proud of the achievement.

“It is my passion to help those in need,” Graham said. “At the Lord’s Place we treat people with dignity and respect while helping them reclaim their lives. I love my work.”

The Lord’s Place has 97 employees working at six campuses to carry out its mission of breaking the cycle of homelessness in Palm Beach County by providing innovative, compassionate and effective services to men, women and children in our community.

The annual Best Companies list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine. One hundred companies are ranked in small, medium and large employer categories.

“Top companies provide excellent pay, health insurance, 401(k) plans and other hard benefits, but they also offer the leadership and communication that encourage employees to participate in the organization’s overall success,” Florida Trend Publisher Andy Corty said.
