Holy Angels named one of 'best places to work'
BELMONT — Holy Angels has been named as one of 20 Best Places to Work in Charlotte for the second year in a row by the Charlotte Business Journal.
During the Charlotte Business Journal's annual luncheon, recently held at the Charlotte Convention Center, businesses were honored that have found innovative ways to keep their employees happy and engaged.
The work at Holy Angels is demanding physically and emotionally. It is important to include fun on a frequent basis in the daily schedule. There are regular social activities with staff and residents including monthly employee luncheons, Spirit Week, a Haunted Greenhouse, summer concerts and boat rides at Holy Angels Camp Hope.
Holy Angels is dedicated to recognizing the employees for their outstanding commitment to the mission of unconditional love and unlimited possibilities for the 80 children and adults with intellectual developmental disabilities who call Holy Angels home.
According to Regina Moody, Holy Angels President/CEO, "Without our staff, Holy Angels would be unable to provide the quality program & services for our residents. Everyone at Holy Angels works together as a team to provide a positive environment for our residents. We are truly a place of loving, living and learning."
Quantum Workplace, an independent human-resources survey company based in Wichita, Kan., conducted a survey of Holy Angels employees and the other 200-plus nominated companies in the Charlotte region.
Twenty companies in the small-business and midsized-company categories and 10 businesses in the large-company category were chosen as winners from among those nominations.
Holy Angels was founded in 1956 by the Sisters of Mercy – beginning a much needed specialized service for children from Gaston, Lincoln, Cleveland and Mecklenburg counties as well as children from throughout North Carolina. The private, nonprofit corporation located in Belmont provides residential services and innovative programs for children and adults with intellectual developmental disabilities, some of whom are medically fragile.
The CARF accredited programs include Holy Angels Morrow Center, the McAuley Residences (Fox Run ICF/MR group homes (three six-bed), Belhaven ICF/MR group home (15-bed), Moody Place ICF/MR group home (15-bed), four community group homes, Little Angels Child Development Center, Great Adventures, Camp Hope, Cherubs Café & Candy Bouquet (vocational program) in downtown Belmont and our newest program, Life Choices, an adult day activities program offering living and learning opportunities.
