Target Wins Award for Being a Great Place to Work!

For the second year in a row, Target has been awarded the When Work Works award for exemplary workplace practices. We are one of only twelve companies in the state of Maryland to receive this honor. The award recognizes employers of all sizes across the country that are excelling at offering a variety of top-rated employee initiatives such as work-life fit policies, flexible scheduling and transition to parenthood programs. In applying for the award, Target was evaluated on factors associated with employee health, well-being and engagement: opportunities for learning; a culture of trust; work-life fit; supervisor support for work success; autonomy; and satisfaction with earnings, benefits and opportunities for advancement.

Skills to Pay the Bills
A new partnership with Carroll Community College has enabled Target Vocational clients to attend the non-credit college class "Skills to Pay the Bills." A Target vocational skills trainer accompanies clients to class and teaches
employment-related topics in this off-site setting.

Target Community & Educational Services, Inc.
Recognized for Exemplary Workplace Practices

Target Community & Educational Services, Inc. has been honored with a 2017 When Work Works Award for its use of effective workplace strategies to increase business and employee success. This prestigious award is part of the national When Work Works project administered by the Families and Work Institute (FWI) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).

This is the second year Target has earned this award.
