When Oakland Family Services was awarded with the 2016 honor of being named as one of the Detroit Free Press’ Top 100 Work Places, these were just some of the thoughts staff shared about the Agency:
“If you want to work someplace where you can see the results in the work you do, where you are a person and not just an ‘employee’ , where your voice matters, and where you continue to learn and grow professionally AND personally...Oakland Family Services is the place for you!"
“(I like the) strong focus on our mission and quality services, (the) high regard for clients’ experience. (The) Agency is committed to employee engagement and making Oakland Family Services a place people love to work."
“I am able to do something that matters and I feel very supported by everyone I work with.”
“Oakland Family Services is trustworthy, fair, forward thinking and sustainable as an agency.”
“I have been in meetings or settings at Oakland Family Services where staff are encouraged to express their opinions or different points of view and this information is seriously taken into consideration as decisions are made.”
“My supervisor is supportive, reliable, kind, and always available. She makes time to hear my concerns and tries to make improvements. She encourages me to attend trainings and allows me to take on different projects to help me grow. My supervisor is one reason why I continue to work at Oakland Family Services.”
“I really like that the CEO hosts a luncheon at each of sites each quarter, to provide updates about the Agency to all of our staff and answer questions. It's nice to have important information delivered in person so that open discussions can be had, and clarifying questions can be asked.”
At Oakland Family Services, our workforce is made up of a variety of passionate professionals all aligned with the same cultural values. No matter what type of work we each do independently, we all come together in the end for the same mission and vision. These common denominators are the fibers that weave our staff together as one, all working toward the same goals. Most staff say that the reason they stay (and we enjoy a very low turnover rate) is because of the “culture.” It’s hard to find anywhere else, and perhaps it is because we live and breathe our operating principles and our cultural vision statements.
