For the third time in recent years, Annandale Village has been named one of the top 100 best places to work in metropolitan Atlanta, according to results of a survey published by the Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC).  The list of Top Atlanta Workplaces recognizes the best employers in Atlanta, the ones that make it a priority to create better workplaces for their employees. The Top Workplaces lists 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, just to name a few.

“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. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

Annandale Village, a nonprofit organization that has enhanced the lives of men and women with intellectual and developmental disabilities for 48 years, was ranked among the mid-size workplaces in the region. It is one of only a handful of nonprofit organizations to be recognized in the top 100 on the list.

“We are honored to receive this recognition, particularly since our employees were the judges. Being placed among the top of this prestigious list validates the culture we’ve worked hard to develop and practice within our organization, said Adam Pomeranz, CEO/President of Annandale Village.  “We continually strive to provide employees with a healthy work/life balance, excellent personal growth opportunities and a path to career enhancement.  We are honored that our employees recognize this commitment.”

Annandale’s Chief Operating Officer, Nancy Trujillo added “we promote a culture of shared respect and believe that each employee and each role served contributes to our collective success. In turn, this creates an energizing and rewarding experience for our employees.”
