WellLife Network Named by Newsday as 2020 Top Workplace on Long Island

WellLife Network earned a 2020 Top Workplaces honor from Newsday in the mid-sized company category of Long Island health care providers. The award is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects, including workplace culture, alignment, execution, and connection.

“Earning the Top Workplace award makes everyone at WellLife very proud,” said Sherry Tucker, CEO, WellLife Network. “We are so gratified that this top honor is the result of our Long Island employees’ opinions about our workplace culture. During the extreme challenges of COVID-19, our staff members continue to provide high-quality, compassionate, and person-centered services.”

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage, LLC. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

Glenn Holt, LMSW, a Long Island program director, remarked, “Working for WellLife Network is like working for an extended family. The management takes a true interest in its staff. They are ethical, respectful, and appreciative of our hard work and commitment.”
