Jewish Community Services (JCS) has been awarded a Top Workplace 2023 honor by Baltimore Sun Top Workplaces. This is the second year in a row that JCS has been awarded the honor. The listing of the region’s leading organizations is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage, LLC. The confidential survey measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
The rankings, announced on Friday, December 8th, reflect the organization’s continuing dedication to supporting and strengthening its workforce while also carrying out its inspirational mission of assisting Baltimore and the surrounding communities with multifaceted support programs.
“The Baltimore Sun Top Workplace recognition is truly an honor to receive as an agency because it is obtained through the voice of our employees. It is even more meaningful to have received this recognition two years in a row. I am so pleased and proud to know that our agency creates a culture where staff feel appreciated, recognized, and have opportunity to grow professionally,” said Joan Grayson Cohen, Esq., LCSW-C, executive director for Jewish Community Services. “Our mission driven work and values of respect, inclusivity, integrity, and community are at the forefront of our service to our clients, our partnerships and in our workplace culture. The award is provided to the agency but really belongs to our remarkable staff, honoring their commitment, hard work, and dedication to serving the community.”
Eric Rubino, Energage CEO, agrees. “Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Rubino. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”
