ALEXANDRIA, Va. A bi-weekly newsletter has named the National Association of Chain Drug Stores as one of the “Top Places to Work in Associations and Nonprofits.”
CEO Update, a publication that focused on jobs, news and people in the association and nonprofit world, conducted a recent survey “for nonprofit groups and associations across the country to rate their benefits, culture and work environment.” The publication concluded that NACDS had multiple benefits, including the company’s paid leave policy and tuition benefits.
“Particularly in Washington, D.C., where many associations are headquartered, the nonprofit industry competes with the government and the private sector for talent,” the Oct. 26 issue said of NACDS. “And in a tight labor market, with less than 3 percent unemployment in the nation’s capital, recruitment becomes a race for how to snag the best candidates, with a combination of adequate pay and great benefits.”
NACDS president and chief executive officer, Steve Anderson, said that under the leadership of its vice president of human resources and administration, NACDS is “committed to fostering a positive and family-friendly work environment that enables us to attract and retain top talent.”
“With the thousands of associations and not-for-profit organizations across the country, I hope our members feel great pride about this recognition,” Anderson said Thursday. “Through our superb staff, we are able to provide outstanding member services and advocacy for our industry.”
