NSSC Awarded Top Workplace Second Year in a Row

November 19, 2021

North Shore Senior Center was recognized as a Top Workplace by the Chicago Tribune for the second year in a row. This national award is given to companies who foster an encouraging environment, and consistently prioritize their employees’ wellness and satisfaction.


“It was such an honor to win the Top Workplace award in the first place,” said Tish Rudnicki, executive director of North Shore Senior Center. “But to get nominated for a second year shows that we’re continuing to serve our employees well as we further our mission in the community.”


Headquartered in Northfield, North Shore Senior Center (NSSC) is a nationally accredited 501(c)(3) organization that serves older adults from the most independent to those needing more support. NSSC serves and engages more than 24,000 older adults and their families each year throughout Chicago’s northern suburbs. NSSC offers a comprehensive suite of services including a wide array of social services, specialized care for people living with dementia, counseling, money management, educational and wellness programs, and volunteer opportunities.


The Top Workplace awards are determined exclusively based on employee opinions reflected in a survey conducted by Energage, an employee engagement survey company. For the second year in a row, longtime employee Barbara Bonier nominated NSSC.


“I applied last year somewhat impulsively,” said Barbara. “But NSSC continues to be the most welcoming, passionate, and family-like environment that I’ve ever worked in. It seemed obvious to nominate us again.”


Though North Shore Senior Center has had to make a variety of adjustments since the pandemic, the organization never wavered in its commitment to deliver high quality programs and services to older adults and their families.


“It speaks volumes to our staff and their ability to adapt so quickly and fluidly to everything that came our way,” said Tish. “It’s inspiring to know we have such a strong team guiding us and our mission. Employees like ours are vital for such a successful organization.”
