United Way of Greater Kansas City is pleased to announce its second consecutive year earning official certification from Great Places To Work™.
Great Places To Work™ certification recognizes employers who create an outstanding employee experience.
Certification is a two-step process that includes a survey of employees about the organization, quality of work environment, workplace benefits and more. Because employee feedback and independent analysis determine scores, certification helps potential job seekers identify which organizations offer excellent company culture.
“At United Way, we are proud of the work that we do collectively with our community that impacts 1 in 3 Kansas Citians each year. But it’s not just about what we do, it’s about how we do it,” said Chris Rosson, United Way of Greater Kansas City president and CEO. “Which is why I’m proud that we’re once again named an official Great Place to Work. Thank you to our incredible staff that make that possible. Together, we’re building a stronger community.”
To earn a Great Places To Work Certification, more than half of employees must complete the survey and the average score results must show that approximately 7 out of 10 employees are having a consistently positive experience at work.
The recognition reenforces United Way’s commitment to maximizing employee potential through effective leadership, strong value structure, and a deep foundation of trust with all employees. All those qualities contribute to our team’s innovation and performance, and encourages everyone to contribute their best.
