Wilmington, Del. (Sept. 7, 2010) — Dawn Career Institute (DCI) is known as a cornerstone in the Wilmington, Del., community for providing local employers with graduates/employees for the better part of four decades. Top Workplaces recognized DCI last month purely on the response to an employee survey.
Developed in conjunction with TopWorkplaces.com, the Top Workplaces program recognizes employers in communities throughout the United States that provide employees with a great place to work. DCI was ranked No. 15 out of the 41 total small employers that were included in the Delaware employee surveys, out of 117 nominated employers.
"As a learning institution, we do our best to ensure that our students are provided the best learning environment possible, and yet we also realize this wouldn’t be possible without quality employees," said Jena Zapata, DCI’s Chief Marketing Officer. "We have the best people working for us not only in regard to their skills and professional attitudes, but also in terms of who they are. We have about 60 employees at DCI, all of whom are a pleasure to work with and contribute so much to a welcoming environment. It’s an honor to be included as one of the state’s top workplaces."
Those companies named as “Top Workplaces” use their organizational web site to communicate the values and reasons why they are the best companies to work for in their local area. The companies on the list were selected after a survey of their employees – and only the companies that employees have rated as the best companies to work for are featured on the web site. Last year, more than 1,600 organizations across 11 regions of the U.S. had their workplaces assessed by employees.
The workplace surveys are conducted by a research company, WorkplaceDynamics LLC, and the programs are run in conjunction with major newspapers in various regional areas.
