Program Overview

Welcome to


You work hard to build a great organization, cultivate a culture of excellence and provide a superior employee experience. This is your chance to be recognized as one of the best employers on the national stage amongst your peers.

In partnership with CCEOC Inc. and Charity eNews, the NEOC Award creates leading employer brand recognition and a true competitive advantage for attracting, retaining and engaging top talent!


Two award classifications:

  1. Tier One - 10 - 50 employees

  2. Tier Two - 51+ employees

* There can be more than one winner in each category.


Not sure if this is right for you? Here are some benefits that might help you decide...

Leadership Development and Employee Trust

The NEOC program provides a unique opportunity to connect with your employees on a deeper level. The employer of choice survey gets employees highly engaged and shows them you are listening. Ongoing, two-way communication throughout the process builds trust, commitment and loyalty.  Establishing Communication and Action Plan teams present many new development opportunities for staff who are looking to improve their leadership skillset.

An Action Plan that Actually Works!

You've completed the survey, you've got your results, now what? This is where the rubber meets the road! You can now develop a targeted action plan that helps you address the areas that need improvement. As part of the reporting package, you get a Continuous Improvement action plan worksheet. This will help you fine tune your strategy, stay on track and deliver solutions in a timely manner. It's important to get started early and show measurable results. Demonstrate that you are committed to building a better workplace and that your employee's opinions matter!
