Independence, Ohio, Aug. 22, 2019 – Koinonia is proud to be recognized by ERC as one of 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. This is the fifth time that our organization has received the NorthCoast 99 Award.
NorthCoast 99 is an annual recognition program and event in its 21st year that honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. “More than a business award or event, NorthCoast 99 is a yearlong research project ERC established to help employers make a difference in the lives of people working and living in our 22-county region,” noted ERC senior vice president Carrie Morse, who has overseen the program for the last 17 years.
NorthCoast 99 winners participated in a rigorous application process that asked for detailed information on how their organization addresses top-performer attraction, development, and retention in five distinct areas: organizational strategy, policies, and communication; recruitment, selecting, and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and development; and total rewards.
“I’m sincerely grateful for the work that our associates perform,” said Diane Beastrom, President and CEO of Koinonia, “This award reinforces that the services provided by our caring associates at Koinonia are efficient, effective, predictable, repeatable, sustainable and compassionate.”
“We’re thrilled to recognize and celebrate this year’s NorthCoast 99 award winners! With unemployment at a 49-year-low, the benchmarks for attracting, engaging, and retaining employees are higher than ever. Year after year, winning organizations are raising the bar with increasingly progressive and groundbreaking HR practices and benefits that elevate the experience of their employees,” said Kelly Keefe, president of ERC.
