United Cerebral Palsy of Georgia, a member of 501(c) Agencies Trust, has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplace honor by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
United Cerebral Palsy of Georgia was founded in 1965 by a group of citizens seeking to establish community based supports to address the needs of children and adults with cerebral palsy. Since that time, UCP of Georgia has grown into a comprehensive organization offering a wide range of supports for people living with diverse intellectual and developmental disabilities. Today, the organization serves over 500 individuals and families with customized supports designed to ensure individuals maximize their potential, discover talents and skills, and achieve personal goals.
“We are honored to have achieved this recognition, which is so meaningful because it is a recognition bestowed by our team members,” said Diane Wilush, President and CEO of UCP of Georgia. “UCP believes a stable, high quality workforce is vital to the success of those we support. As a result we devote a great deal of thought, time and energy to creating a workplace where everyone thrives.”
“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
