Utah Food Bank is proud to announce that we have officially been awarded a Top Workplaces honor by The Salt Lake Tribune. This recognition only confirms something our approximately 100 employees already know — Utah Food Bank is a GREAT place to work! Now in its sixth year, this list of honorees is based solely on employee feedback, measuring aspects of workplace culture and environment, including alignment with the organization’s mission, execution, and connection to the clients and community served.
Job seekers are looking for much more than a paycheck—they want to work within a culture that aligns with their own values. This award will help Utah Food Bank retain and attract top talent, which can be especially tricky for nonprofit organizations in a competitive and crowded job market.
“Culture is and has been a significant priority for us at Utah Food Bank. We are humbled and thrilled to be recognized for it, especially by our own employees” said Ginette Bott, Utah Food Bank President & CEO. “Top Workplaces is not an honor you can buy – it’s an honor we can and will work towards keeping.”
According to additional workplace surveys, 93% of our staff believe that Utah Food Bank has a positive impact on the local community, and that the mission of our organization plays a big role in the way that employees feel about their jobs. This same survey showed that 90% of our employees feel that they have a trusting and respectful relationship with their supervisors. At Utah Food Bank, we find that the mission keeps our staff coming to work, and their relationships with coworkers and supervisors creates an environment that fosters success and job satisfaction.
“We are so grateful to be chosen for this honor by our employees. Our unique culture is thanks to a partnership between staff and management who all have a common goal in mind: feeding those facing hunger statewide,” according to Aimee Botelho, Utah Food Bank Director of Human Resources. “Our organization’s success is created by all of these amazing people who are highly engaged and determined to make the world a better place!”
