Avala Honored to Receive 2019 Top Workplace and Direction Awards
Covington, Louisiana – Avala, has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 honor by The Times-Picayune as well as the 2019 Direction Award; given to a company whose employees believe they are on the right path to growth.
The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
Here are a few words from Avala’s HR Director and CEO regarding this great achievement:
“As you walk throughout our campus, there is one common trait that you will experience. Professional Passion. A passion for our brand, Avala. A passion in providing unsurpassed patient care.

“I often overhear our employees telling other people they love their job, they have the best job anyone can have, or they look forward to coming to work. As a leader when you hear that, you know you have the right culture” said Scott Boudreaux, CEO of Avala. “At Avala our culture is simple. Respect, communicate, and value each team member’s contribution to the organization. At Avala, our team is who we are.”
