Louis Brier Home and Hospital and Weinberg Residence has officially been awarded the Canadian Non-profit Employer of Choice Award two years in a row, 2020 and 2021!
The news was announced during the March 18th, 2022 Louis Brier LIFE Day through a Special Announcement Presentation.
From the NEOC Press Release:
“In a quest to create “decent workplaces” thought leaders are debunking the myth that employees in the nonprofit sector are willing (and should be expected) to work in exchange for the opportunity to “do good.”
Today, talented people can find a socially meaningful career outside a traditional nonprofit organization, which intensifies the competition for qualified staff. Nonprofit employers of choice generally do a better job of attracting and retaining talent due to: superior HR management; strong organizational cultures; clarity around job expectations; and relevant training and career development.”
The Nonprofit Employer of Choice™ (NEOC) Award is a tool that measures a nonprofit’s Leadership attributes, HR practices and employee opinions. The NEOC program provides a framework to evaluate an organization’s talent management issues and start constructing a corrective plan of action. This program further enables the board and senior staff to probe and analyze the issues and start the transformational change needed to achieve the impact the donor rightly expects.
“We’re very excited to announce the winners of the 2021 Nonprofit Employer of Choice™ award.” said Jeff Doran, president of CCEOC Inc. “2021 was again an extremely difficult year. But even with all the challenges caused by the pandemic, these organizations took the time to assess their operations and recognize their employees for all their hard work and sacrifice. My hat is off to all of these amazing nonprofits!” Doran says, “All winning nonprofits showed strong leadership qualities, particularly in the areas of reputation, management/employee relations and personal enjoyment. These organizations can now promote their employer of choice brand and put together workable action plans to help make their organizations even better places to work.”
