Helen Ross McNabb Center named Greater Knoxville Area Top Workplace

(KNOXVILLE, Tenn.) The Helen Ross McNabb Center was recognized as a 2018 Top Large Workplace and received special recognition with the Appreciation Award.

The Top Workplaces Awards by the Knoxville News Sentinel are based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection.

“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.”

The Center's mission focuses on "improving lives," and that includes employees. Made up of more than 900 professionals, the Center is committed to providing an empowering workplace for its employees. 

“Receiving the Top Workplaces Award is an incredible honor for the Helen Ross McNabb Center,” said Jerry Vagnier, CEO of the Helen Ross McNabb Center. “I am proud to represent a workplace where employees are passionate about their work, feel appreciated for the work they do and are excited to make a difference in the lives of our clients.”
