At Family Service Rochester, we believe in the transformative power of our employees. Each member of our team plays a vital role in shaping the success and impact of our organization. After a recent Employee engagement survey we were able to understand exactly how we measure up to the employee expectations. Overwhelmingly our scores were very favorable. We want to shine a spotlight on the incredible positive influence that our employees bring to Family Service Rochester every single day. Filling out our employee engagement survey is 1 tool, but our employees are invited to participate in All Staff meetings, small group breakfast meetings with the Executive Director and Director of HR, committees and small work groups to be involved in, and then truly seeing change happen. In a 2024 survey 80% of employees feel they are engaged in workplace decisions and offered opportunities to provide input on things that affect them at FSR such as benefits, compensation and polices.

Engagement is at the heart of everything we do, and our employees exemplify this core value in their dedication and passion for our mission. By actively participating in initiatives, events, and projects, they foster a culture of collaboration and shared purpose that drives our organization forward.

But it's not just about showing up—it's about making a difference. Our employees go above and beyond by offering sound recommendations for policy changes, suggesting innovative ideas for new programs, and continuously seeking ways to enhance our services and support for the community. Their proactive approach and willingness to challenge the status quo bring fresh perspectives and drive positive change throughout our organization.

Moreover, the positive influence of our employees extends beyond the walls of our office. Through their commitment to excellence and their genuine care for others, they inspire those around them—clients, volunteers, partners, and the broader community—to strive for greatness and to make a difference in the lives of others.

As we reflect on the impact of our employees at Family Service Rochester, we are filled with gratitude and admiration for their unwavering dedication, their innovative spirit, and their profound commitment to serving others. Together, we are not just an organization—we are a community united by a shared vision of creating a brighter, more compassionate world for all.

Here's to continuing our journey of impact and inspiration together!
