Donor Alliance has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by the Denver Post. The federally designated, non-profit organization that facilitates organ and tissue donation in Colorado and most of Wyoming ranked 19th on the list of top small companies.

The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.” Claffey adds, “without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

“Colorado is home to a number of wonderful organizations. We are very honored to be among the best employers in the state for the fourth consecutive year,” said Sue Dunn, president and CEO of Donor Alliance. “I believe this recognition is a testament to the value in Donor Alliance being a mission-driven organization, and the incredible team that is the heart of our organization. Our employees are essential in achieving our mission to save lives through organ and tissue donation and transplantation.”

Donor Alliance fosters a mission-drive culture through the organization’s core values: Integrity, Leadership, Excellence, Accountability and People First. In addition to traditional employee benefits like wellness programs, tuition and health club reimbursement and a charitable contribution program, the organization offers employees something much more extraordinary: the opportunity to help save lives every day.

In addition to achieving Top Workplace status for the last four consecutive years, Donor Alliance won Quantum’s Employee Voice Award, honoring organizations for outstanding work in employee engagement, earlier this year. The non-profit also earned Rocky Mountain Performance Excellence (RMPEx) highest level of recognition, the Peak Performance Award, in 2015.
