On Wednesday, Oct. 26, the Ohio Psychological Association (OPA) honored Koinonia and seven other companies as the recipients of its ninth annual Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards. Koinonia was also a recipient of the state award in 2005 and 2006 and won the national award from the American Psychological Association in 2007.
After an application was submitted to the OPA, a panel of OPA members conducted a site visit. Koinonia’s workplace was evaluated on five areas: employee involvement, employee growth and development, health and safety, employee recognition and work-life balance. Among other factors, Koinonia was noted for its excellent formal and informal communications systems and its proactive approach to making documentation of services provided more accurate and efficient.
