ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Behavior Change Institute (BCI) has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Albuquerque Journal. Awards 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.
“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.”
“We are humbled by the recognition,” said Kathleen Karimi and Dr. Joy Pollard, Founders and CEOs of BCI. “We have approached leadership, company culture, infrastructure and professional development opportunities thoughtfully, knowing that employee satisfaction directly influences our ability to deliver high quality services and help our children and families to thrive.”
Behavior Change Institute attributes satisfaction rankings to its employee engagement, sharing that it has successfully launched numerous initiatives, including a local health and wellness meetup founded and maintained by company employees. In addition, the company invests in mentorship programs for new hires, staff engagement committees, training scholarship programs and formal internships for Registered Behavior Technicians and Board Certified Behavior Analysts.
