Options for Community Living Named Top Workplace on Long Island

Options for Community Living, Inc. has been named a Top Workplace by Newsday, ranked #9 in the medium company category. The list is based solely on employee  feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, (formerly Workplace Dynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

One Options employee said, “My job helps support the well-being of individuals who are in need. On a personal level, that makes me feel really good.”

“We are especially proud of this award because it is the direct result of employee feedback,” said Lori Barraud, Director of Human Resources, Options for Community Living, Inc. “Our employees identify strongly with our goals and our vision.
