When asked “What three things does your employer do for you that you love?” NGA staff noted the organization’s focus on professional and personal growth, fostering a healthy team culture, and trusting and empowering staff to do the right thing for its members and industry.

“We’re very proud that NGA is on this list,” says Nicole Harris, president and CEO. “It’s a reflection of how we live our staff values, which include helping each other succeed.”

The NGA staff, which successfully works from home across 15 different states, recently gathered at NGA’s headquarters in Virginia for a coaching retreat. There, staff reiterated individual and collective satisfaction with their cross-collaborative efforts to improve how they work and what they produce.
