Receives Special Recognition for Employees’ Dedication to Meaningful Mission

BALTIMORE, MD – (December 6, 2016) Kennedy Krieger Institute is recognized for the second year in a row as one of the top ten large-size employers in the Baltimore metro region in the Baltimore Sun’s 2016 Top Workplaces ranking. The Institute was also awarded the Top Workplace for Meaningfulness after scoring 15 percent over a national benchmark for employees’ feedback to the statement, “My job makes me feel like I am part of something meaningful.”

The Baltimore Sun partnered with WorkplaceDynamics, an employee research and consulting firm, to anonymously survey employees at 171 organizations in the Baltimore area. The rankings are based solely on employee opinions, with special leadership recognitions for just 15 organizations based on standout scores in specific areas. WorkplaceDynamics has conducted similar surveys for dozens of U.S. newspapers and helped The Sun produce Top Workplaces for the past six years.

“We are thrilled by this recognition because it confirms our employees can feel how much we value them and their exceptional talent and commitment to serving our patients and students with special needs,” said Dr. Gary Goldstein, President and CEO of Kennedy Krieger Institute. “We also value this kind of anonymous feedback because it helps to identify areas where we, as an organization, can improve, as well strengths that we will build upon.” 

Kennedy Krieger’s more than 2,400 employees across 19 locations in the Baltimore and Washington metro areas enjoy a culture rich in diversity and the opportunity to work with professionals from a wide variety of disciplines. A relaxed and inspiring work environment is complemented by an attractive benefits package and competitive salaries. For more information on careers at the Institute, visit
