The Lord’s Place was recently named one of “Florida’s Best Companies To Work For.” The Lord’s Place ranked ninth in the list of the 32 mid-sized companies receiving the honor. This is the fifth consecutive year that the Lord’s Place has received this prestigious designation.
The annual Best Companies list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine. Companies are ranked in small, medium and large employer categories.
“We are pleased to once again be recognized by Florida Trend as one of the best companies to work for in Florida,” Lord’s Place CEO Diana Stanley said. “It is a recognition of our company’s culture to demonstrate to our employees their great value as they work to help some of the most vulnerable members of our community. This work brings with it unique stressors, as well as rewards. We are diligent in our efforts to make sure our team members know they are appreciated and are critical to the success of our work.”
To participate, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation at least one year. Companies that chose to participate underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction.
“Employers we speak with talk a lot about how workplaces are changing and how young employees’ expectations are changing. For the Best Companies issue this year, we spoke with new hires and got their perspectives on what attracted them to the companies where they now work and what they now like best about their workplaces,” Executive Editor Mark Howard said.
For more than 35 years, the Lord’s Place has provided compassionate and effective services and programs to help end the cycle of homelessness. For more info., call (561) 494-0125 or visit www.thelordsplace.org.
