Morial Convention Center Earns Eighth New Orleans “Top Workplace” Award

NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center (NOENMCC) has earned the highly coveted Regional Top Workplace 2023 Award by The Times-Picayune | The New Orleans Advocate. This year marks the eighth time the Convention Center has received this distinction.

Recognizing Greater New Orleans businesses that demonstrate dedication to a people-first culture, the Top Workplace Awards focus on the employee experience. Winners are determined by feedback captured on an employee engagement survey administered by third-party technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey measures several culture drivers that can be critical to an organization’s success, including alignment, execution and connection.

“At the Convention Center, we consider employees our internal customers. We strive to cultivate an engaged internal community, teams that serve our customers and partners with the kind of hospitality and spirit you can only get in New Orleans,” said Michael J. Sawaya, Convention Center President. “Our employees’ hard work enables us to be a leading-edge organization in the conventions and events industry. We appreciate our team members who consistently show up with relentless dedication to our customers, community and purpose.”

NOENMCC is committed to creating a culture and workplace that is fundamentally inclusive, an organization where everyone can find a sense of belonging and thrive professionally. Equitable hiring has been a longstanding priority at the NOENMCC, and its workforce mirrors New Orleans’ demographics. This mission directly led to the recent creation of a Chief Diversity Officer position, the first convention center in the nation to carve out this leadership role.

The longevity of the Convention Center staff attests to its “Top Workplace” status: Convention Center staff boasts 405 employees with a combined 3,550 combined years of experience – an average of 8.7 years each.

Convention Center employees enjoy a competitive benefits package including medical, dental, vision, short-term disability, critical illness, whole life, term life, and a retirement plan as well as employer-paid (FREE) parking, paid time off, paid holidays, group term life and AD&D, long term disability and long-term care insurances.
