Schneck Medical Center has been awarded The Advisory Board Company’s 2017 Workplace of the Year Award. The annual award recognizes hospitals and health systems nationwide that have outstanding levels of employee engagement.
Schneck is one of twenty organizations nationwide to receive the award, and it’s the organization’s second consecutive year to be honored.
“We’re honored to receive this award, especially for a second consecutive year. We are proud to be recognized for having a healthcare team that go above and beyond, and live Schneck’s mission to improve the health of our communities,” said Kathy Covert, MSM, CHM, Vice President of Workforce and Organizational Development. “It’s a celebration of the individuals who work at Schneck and a testament to their dedication and commitment.”
Engaged employees, as defined by The Advisory Board Company, are those who exhibit both loyalty and commitment to the organization. These employees are willing to expend discretionary effort, often going above and beyond to help the organization succeed. The award recognizes Schneck’s commitment to creating a best-in-class work environment for its employees.
“Engaging the workforce is arguably more important now than ever before, with all signs indicating that we are heading into a staffing shortage,” said Steven Berkow, Executive Director, Survey Solutions at The Advisory Board Company. “With a significant portion of the workforce retiring in the coming years and non-traditional employers encroaching on talent, hospitals and health systems must be laser-focused on engaging their staff. Our award winners have demonstrated an impressive ability to inspire the highest levels of engagement across the country while maintaining remarkably low levels of disengagement.”
