National award shines spotlight
on Nevada for quality health care
Cure 4 The Kids Foundation (C4K), Nevada’s only outpatient children’s cancer
center, ranked fourth in the 2021 Best Nonprofits to Work For. C4K is the only Nevada
organization to make the national list this year, improving its ranking from last year by 19 places.
“We’re extremely proud to bring this award home and to be nationally recognized as one of the top five best nonprofits to work for,” said Annette Logan-Parker, CEO and founder of Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. “It demonstrates the dedication and passion our employees have for our mission and shows our dedication to the health and well-being of our team.”
“We went to extraordinary lengths in the last year to keep our employees and their families safe during the pandemic,” added Logan-Parker. “Those lengths included providing additional benefits such as food and supplies to keep them safe and limit exposure, and an employee wellness initiative that demonstrated our genuine commitment to our employees. We need to always remember to take care of the caretakers.”
The honor is significant both for C4K and for the entire state of Nevada. She said the coveted ranking shines a bright spotlight on Nevada as a place for quality healthcare and is a key indicator of the significant advances Cure 4 The Kids Foundation has brought to the state.
According to the report, medium-sized organizations, those with 50 to 249 employees, accounted for nearly half of the 50 best nonprofits, with 24 honorees and in this category. C4K actually ranked second among nonprofits of this size. The survey and awards program are designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the nonprofit industry, benefiting the economy, workforce and businesses.
Las Vegas-based C4K made the annual list published by the NonProfit Times for the second straight year. NonProfit Times is the leading national business publication for nonprofit managers. It partners with Best Companies Group to identify nonprofit organizations where leaders have excelled in creating and maintaining workplace excellence. The list is made up of 50 organizations from around the country.
Nonprofits from across the United States entered the two-part survey process to determine Best Nonprofits To Work For. Part one of the survey consisted of assessing each nominated organization’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics, while part two consisted of an employee survey to measure the overall employee experience. The combined scores determined the top nonprofits and the final ranking.
