Healthcare Resource Group is one of the 2016 Best Workplaces in Health Care, according to the global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine.
Healthcare Resource Group ranked 10th on the list, based on employees’ assessments of the pride they take in their jobs, the camaraderie they experience with coworkers, and the trust they feel toward Healthcare Resource Group leaders.
This year’s Best Workplaces in Health Care stand out for creating workplaces that employees say make them feel good about what they do and close to their coworkers. Those feelings come despite employees working in an industry under pressure to implement new regulations, curb rising costs, and absorb technology advances while also caring for patients.
“Employees at the Best Workplaces in Health Care are working in a family-like atmosphere where everyone’s got each other’s back and they’re working toward a common goal of taking care of people,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “And the organizations that foster these inspiring, collegial cultures benefit by becoming talent magnets.”
“As an employee-owned company, HRG actually lives the mantra ‘employees are our most valuable asset.’ We make every effort to engage and inspire our employees to peak performance. This award is a reflection of how our employees feel about the way they are treated.” says Chief Executive Officer, Steve McCoy.
Health care institutions are hierarchical by nature, and work groups at some must compete against each other for limited resources. At the best workplaces, however, employees say they feel like a cohesive unit no matter what their job, and can count on coworkers to cooperate. The vast majority describe their workplaces are “friendly,” and feel like an equal member of the organization regardless of their position.
To create the list, Great Place to Work® surveyed close to 34,500 employees in hospital systems, home health care providers, national health care associations, and medical products distributors.
Healthcare Resource Group and the other winning companies were selected based on responses to Great Place to Work®’s Trust Index© employee assessment survey. Survey questions assessed co-workers' feelings on camaraderie and pride on the job, as well as how they felt about other workplace issues including management, communication, work-life balance, and compensation.
“I am thankful every day for the team I am surrounded by. Our management team builds us up and offers support and leadership when needed, while allowing us to grow as individuals. We are consistently encouraged not just to do our best but to be our best” said one HRG employee in response to the survey.
The Best Workplaces in Health Care ranking is part of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune based upon employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work®-certified organizations.
