Look­ing for the ‘Best Places to Work in Health­care’

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Mod­ern Health­care’s sev­enth an­nual Best Places to Work in Health­care recog­ni­tion pro­gram is un­der­way. The pro­gram is de­signed to iden­tify and rec­og­nize the top work­places in health­care, those that go above and be­yond to sup­port their em­ploy­ees, em­pow­er­ing them to pro­vide pa­tients and cus­tomers with the best pos­si­ble care and ser­vices.

On be­half of Mod­ern Health­care, the Best Com­pa­nies Group, a Har­ris­burg, Pa.-based firm that con­ducts re­gional “best places to work” pro­grams around the coun­try, will con­duct two sur­veys of health­care com­pa­nies that vol­un­teer to par­tic­i­pate. The first is a ques­tion­naire for a par­tic­i­pat­ing em­ployer. The sec­ond is a sat­is­fac­tion sur­vey of a com­pany’s em­ploy­ees.

The pro­gram is open to all health­care or­ga­ni­za­tions and com­pa­nies in all sec­tors of the in­dus­try with a min­i­mum of 25 full-time em­ploy­ees. Par­tic­i­pa­tion is free for com­pa­nies and or­ga­ni­za­tions that com­plete the process elec­tron­i­cally. Health­care or­ga­ni­za­tions and com­pa­nies that par­tic­i­pate in the pro­gram will re­ceive a free sum­mary re­port. Par­tic­i­pants also will be able to buy a full as­sess­ment feed­back re­port from the Best Com­pa­nies Group. The dead­line to reg­is­ter for the 2014 pro­gram is May 16. In July, Mod­ern Health­care will an­nounce the names, in al­pha­bet­i­cal or­der, of the 100 Best Places to Work in Health­care. A spe­cial sup­ple­ment in­clud­ing the over­all rank­ing of the 100 Best Places to Work will be pub­lished in the Oct. 23 is­sue of Mod­ern Health­care. Win­ners also will be ranked by com­pany size: small com­pa­nies (25 to 99 em­ploy­ees); medium-size com­pa­nies (100 to 999 em­ploy­ees); and large com­pa­nies (1,000 or more em­ploy­ees). New this year: Com­pa­nies will be ranked on two lists, one in the cat­e­gory of providers/pay­ers, and an­other in the cat­e­gory of sup­pli­ers.
