LRADAC once again named one of South Carolina’s Top Workplaces for 2022

May 2, 2022

Columbia, SC – LRADAC, the designated substance misuse authority for Lexington and Richland Counties, has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2022 honor by The South Carolina Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few. This is the second consecutive year LRADAC has been named a Top Workplace in SC in addition to being nationally recognized as a Top Workplace USA winner earlier this year.

“With so many challenges faced by healthcare professionals during the last two years, I am keenly aware of what our staff has gone through during the pandemic,” said Gayle Aycock, President and CEO of LRADAC. “But our team worked through these difficult times to continue our mission of quality care and to ensure uninterrupted substance misuse treatment, intervention and prevention to patients, their families, and the communities we serve. Being recognized for our collective efforts in these times speaks to the never-ending commitment and passion that LRADAC employees have, and we are grateful for this honor.”

“Companies need to authentically represent their brand to job-seekers,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “The employee experience needs to be on the mission-critical list. Leaders who embrace a people-first culture will benefit greatly. By giving employees a voice and showcasing your authentic culture through employer branding, organizations can attract those job seekers who complement their culture. Culture drives performance.”
