September 23, 2021 – Tommy Nobis Center, a Marietta-based nonprofit that helps individuals with disabilities enter or return to employment, was recently named a Best and Brightest Company to Work For in the Nation for the second consecutive year. This award honors organizations that display a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment.

“This has been an incredibly difficult year that has been filled with the loss of teammates, former teammates, friends, and family members.” says President & CEO, Dave Ward. “I am so incredibly humbled by the effort of our team to continue to push forward and implement our mission as we’ve had to navigate such adversity.”

Out of the 1500 companies that submitted nominations for the summer 2021 Best and Brightest national award, only 184 were named to the prestigious Best and Brightest list, putting Tommy Nobis Center in the top 12% percent of all companies nominated.

“The Best and Brightest is a powerful community of elite leaders who are employers of choice. Best and Brightest winning companies have also been a voice for important actions in creating a sustainable culture that works, ensuring the wellbeing of their employees comes first,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs.

Organizations were assessed based on categories such as communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention, and more. Winners were selected following confidential, third-party employee surveys, and the awards process was audited, designed, and scored by an independent market research firm.
