Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey Certified as a Great Place to Work® for Fourth Straight Year

LSMNJ is Great Place to Work Certified for 2023-2024

Great Place to Work Institute and its senior care partner Activated Insights have again honored Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey (LSMNJ) with certification as a Great Place to Work. The certification process involved surveying 100% of employees from across LSMNJ’s programs and locations and evaluating more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s community impact, the belief that their work makes a difference, and the feeling their work has special meaning. Rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do.

“LSMNJ staff members represent a variety of cultures, backgrounds, and beliefs,” shared Colleen Frankenfield, President and CEO. “While we are a richly diverse group of people, we share firm common ground when it comes to hard work and commitment to our organization’s mission.”

“An overwhelming 92% of our employees say their work has special meaning and they are proud of where they work,” continued Colleen. “This underscores the fact that our residents and participants are cared for by dedicated individuals that take pride in making a difference every day in the lives of those we provide care.  That type of team member always goes above and beyond, and we are blessed to have those people as part of LSMNJ and they are the core of our mission and service.”

“We applaud LSMNJ for seeking certification and publicly sharing its employees’ feedback,” said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung, of Great Place to Work’s senior care partner Activated Insights. “These ratings measure its capacity to earn its own employees’ trust and create a great workplace for high performance.”
