FORT ATKINSON – Fort HealthCare has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
Fort HealthCare is not only named a Top Workplace in 2018, but is recognized as a “Hall of Fame” award recipient. This honor is for the companies that have been honored eight of the nine years that the Top Workplaces have been recognized. Out of 150 employers on this year’s prestigious list another 16, including Fort HealthCare, have made the list in eight of the program’s nine years. With regard to the healthcare organizations in the large employer category with (500 or more employees, Fort HealthCare was one of the select few healthcare systems to receive the award of Top Workplaces again in 2018.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage, said. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
Nancy Alstad, Senior Director of Human Resources added, “Fort HealthCare cares about employees and invests in development opportunities for staff and leadership. Our RESPECT values of Responsiveness, Excellence, Sensitivity, Professionalism, Empowerment, Cultural Diversity and Teamwork help comprise the work ethic at Fort HealthCare. Employees at Fort HealthCare are passionate about the organization and portray that passion when they come to work. We are honored to be recognized as a great place to work and will continue to invest in our employees.”
Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy, Claffey said.
“It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal,” Mike Wallace, president and CEO Fort HealthCare, added. “Our employees receive invitations to participate in the survey and they are the ones that decide year after year that Fort HealthCare is a Top Workplace. The Top Workplaces award is possible because of our employees and their contributions to our organization. We are very excited to be receiving this honor again in 2018.”
