Online PR News – 18-June-2016 – Washington, DC – The Washington Post awarded Maryâ€™s Center the 2016 Top Workplaces honor last night. In its third year, The Washington Postâ€™s Top Workplace list spotlights private, public, nonprofit and government agencies with the highest ratings from their employees in a survey conducted by Workplace Dynamics.
â€śOur staff is our most precious asset; their profound commitment to our mission and the quality of services has made us an impactful institution that provides care with a heart,â€ť said Nina Albert, Chair of the Board of Directors. â€śI am very proud to see the Washington Post recognize their efforts.â€ť
What started as a small clinic in a basement 28 years ago, with 10 employees serving 200 Latino women fleeing war and poverty, has become a multisite and multicultural organization. Nearly 500 employees work at the Centerâ€™s seven locations throughout DC and Maryland, dedicated to promoting wellness and supporting 36,000 participants to move up the economic ladder.
â€śOne of my first projects when I joined Maryâ€™s Center was to measure the engagement of our workforce,â€ť said Carlos MarroquĂn, Director of Human Resources. â€śKnowing the turmoil that rapid growth causes in the workplace, I prepared myself for a lot of action items to emerge from the survey; what I got instead was something I have never seen before: a truly engaged and satisfied group of people, driven by their passion to serve their community and with an overwhelming desire to support one another.â€ť
This honor was bestowed on a total of 150 companies at a celebration on Thursday, June 16 at the new offices of The Washington Post.
In addition, Maryâ€™s Center will be featured in a special section of The Washington Post on Sunday, June 19.
