Annual Award Program Honors the Best Employers in the Industry
Cinnaire announced today the company has been recognized as a 2020 Best Nonprofit to Work For by the Nonprofit Times, the leading business publication for nonprofit management. This is the sixth time Cinnaire has received this honor, with a 2020 ranking of #38 of the top 50 Best Nonprofits overall.
The Nonprofit Times partnered with Best Companies Group to identify nonprofit organizations where leaders have excelled in creating quality workplaces. The survey and award program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the nonprofit industry, benefitting the industry’s economy, workforce and businesses.
“Cinnaire is honored to receive this award and recognition for the sixth time,” said Mark McDaniel, Cinnaire president & CEO. “We are actively engaged in creating an environment designed to provide work-life balance, create opportunities for employees to build their skills and to promote our culture of living our Why – we have an unwavering belief that all people deserve the opportunities provided by living in healthy communities. This award is a testament to the Cinnaire team’s passion and commitment to our mission.”
Nonprofits from across the United States entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Nonprofits to Work For. The first part consists of evaluating organization’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consists of an employee survey to measure employee experience. The multi-part process is designed to gather detailed data about each participating nonprofit. Cinnaire team members completed a questionnaire and a confidential survey. Board members, investors and partners provided insight to assist the Best Companies Group in analyzing Cinnaire’s workplace environment.
