Nevada Public Radio, owner of News 88.9 KNPR and Classical 89.7 KCNV, was once again named as "The Best Place to Work" among Las Vegas nonprofit organizations by the Southern Nevada Human Resource Association. This makes five years in a row that Nevada Public Radio is a recipient of this award.
The company is one of more than 80 non-profit corporations, governmental agencies and private businesses nominated in the Association's annual Workplace Excellence Awards program. Honors were given in the categories of nonprofit, government, large business, medium business, small business, micro business and gaming.
Cynthia Dobek, Director of Business, Finance and Human Resources, said "Nevada Public Radio's organizational practice and policies, begins with a philosophy of treating people the way we would like to be treated, along with hiring great people and encouraging them to do their best work.
"Nevada Public Radio invests in its employees by providing fair compensation, excellent benefits, great work surroundings, state-of-the art broadcast and office technology, and most importantly, a work environment that values each individual's contribution to the overall group effort," she said.
The Southern Nevada Human Resources Association is part of the 500-chapter Society for Human Resource Management, the world's largest association devoted to HR management. Awards are given at its annual October luncheon program.
