Canopy Celebrates Great Place to Work® Certification

Canopy Children’s Solutions (Canopy) has earned recognition for the second year as a certified Great Place to Work® in Mississippi and globally. Great Place to Work is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue and increased innovation. Certification is a significant achievement as it is only held by four other organizations in Mississippi.

The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Canopy. Eighty-three percent of employees stated that Canopy is a “great place to work”; that is a 7% increase compared to last year’s (2020-2021) results.  

“Creating an inclusive, respectful, high-performance culture has always been one of Canopy’s top priorities,” said Taheti Watson, Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer.  “The foundation of Canopy being a great workplace lies in a culture of trust and engagement. It is about intentionally creating a safe psychological space where everyone is celebrated and valued for the unique talent they bring to Canopy.”

“Canopy is a great place to work for me because of my team and working with our youth,” said Willie Mae Berry, Resident Care Specialist at Canopy’s CARES Center.  “I like the bond that we establish with our children, how we help them problem solve and understand what is best for them.  We are their family away from home.”
