AmeriCares Named a Top Workplace

  • September 17, 2012

Stamford, Conn. – Sept. 17, 2012 – AmeriCares is proud to be selected as one of Hearst Connecticut Media Group’s Top Workplaces for 2012. AmeriCares was one of 35 employers in Southern Connecticut honored based on the results of an employee survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. WorkplaceDynamics conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with more than 30 major publishing partners and recognizes a national list of Top Workplaces.

AmeriCares, a nonprofit global health and disaster relief organization that delivers medical aid to more than 90 countries annually, was recognized as one of the best small companies with fewer than 125 employees. In addition to offering competitive salaries and benefits, the organization prides itself on fostering a learning environment that offers educational opportunities for employees to grow their professional skills and medical expertise. Weekly medical seminars are held for all staff and volunteers, and job-related skills training classes are offered throughout the year. Employees are also celebrated for their contributions during staff breakfasts throughout the year.

“We are pleased to be recognized as an employer that offers an exemplary working environment with high job satisfaction,” said AmeriCares Senior Vice President of Human Resources Kevin Gilrain. “The judges in this competition were our own employees, and there is no greater honor.”

Hearst Connecticut Media Group published the complete list of Top Workplaces in the Sept. 16 editions of the Connecticut Post, Advocate, Greenwich Time and News-Times newspapers. For more information about the Top Workplaces lists and WorkplaceDynamics, please visit and
