But what’s it like to work at Centerpoint?

The best answers to this question come from staff themselves. Centerpoint staff complete an annual survey, with opportunities to rate their work satisfaction and to make suggestions for program improvement. The final question on this survey is often the most telling, and the responses to this question reflect the organizational culture that we strive for:

“What do you most appreciate about your work at Centerpoint?”

  • “The people I work with, both staff and students”
  • “The opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our students”
  • “how supportive, friendly and helpful the staff are (and the best supervisors ever)”
  • “The people – there must be something special in the hiring process”
  • “Working with the people I do and getting to work in such a flexible setting”
  • “The flexibility to make it what you love”
  • “The staff culture at Centerpoint – the people around me, the openness, the energy”
  • “The staff, the freedom, the positivity – it’s just awesome that this place exists!”
  • “The amazing staff, support, and positive attitude within and throughout the organization”
  • “Working with these kids and families, and working with an awesome, incredible team of professionals”
  • “the energy and helpfulness that all staff bring”
  • “The fact that the mission statement is something that staff and leadership genuinely believe in and that there is thoughtful, dynamic, and relevant support to help staff improve and continue to grow”

Great programming, great services, and great supports – but above all else, it’s about great staff.
