If you haven’t picked up Utah Business Magazine’s recent publication, then you might not know that United Way of Salt Lake was recognized as one of Utah Business Magazine’s 2014 Best Companies to Work For.


IMG_9076To say we’re simply excited about this second win would be an understatement. When reading employee comments such as “Every time I am asked where I work, I think with pride of the work we do, and how excited I am to be working at this organization.” We are overwhelmed with joy. Why? It’s one thing to have personal reflections on the work place and how great you think it is, but another to hear it from the staff. The management team strives hard to make UWSL a satisfying place to work, but knows it would not be what it is without our incredible team of employees.

It’s a three step process to be considered for Best Companies to Work For award. First, management completes a survey answering questions about our benefits, compensation, management, organizational culture, employee opportunities, and more. Second, employees complete an anonymous survey answering similar questions to see how our answers measured up. Is our benefit package truly robust? Do we pay fair wages? How do the employees feel about the company culture? The surveys were then scored on a point system by Utah Business Magazine, and the highest-ranking organizations were awarded. United Way of Salt Lake was the only nonprofit awarded among the thirty-five companies recognized!

As UWSL continues to grow and change the odds for children and families, we couldn’t be more confident in our dedicated staff. It’s an honor to share this award with our team because every single person makes United Way of Salt Lake an incredible place to work. Winning the Best Companies to Work For award was truly a fantastic way to wrap-up another remarkable year.
