ROSELAND, N.J. - The New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJCPA) was chosen by The NonProfit Times as one of the best nonprofit organizations to work for in the United States in 2017, ranking 39th overall. Among small employers (with 15-49 staff members), NJCPA was selected 13th.
"We are honored to be chosen for this prestigious award out of a group of national, standout organizations," said Ellen McSherry, chief operating officer of NJCPA. "We continuously strive to be a place of engagement for both members and employees, where we can leverage all of their talents."
The NonProfit Times ranked the organizations based on survey data taken from categories that included leadership and planning; corporate culture and communications; role satisfaction; work environment; relationship with supervisor; training, development and resources; pay and benefits; and overall employee engagement. Best Companies Group, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data and determined the ranking.
The survey identified ten key drivers for employees, which included: how valued they are, how much confidence they have in leadership, the type of work performed, making progress at work, how much fun they have at their job, trusting the organization, how satisfied they are with an organization's benefits package, room for advancement, liking staff and feeling they are part of a team. Those organizations on the top 50 list tended to score near 90 percent across all categories of questions.
