Schneck Receives Workplace of the Year Award from The Advisory Board Company
May 02, 2016
Schneck Medical Center has been awarded The Advisory Board Company’s 2016 Workplace of the Year Award.  The annual award recognizes hospitals and health systems nationwide that have outstanding levels of employee engagement. 
 
“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.”
 
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. This award is recognition of Schneck’s commitment to creating a best-in-class work environment.
 
“We’re honored to receive this award and proud to be recognized for having employees who go above and beyond, giving of themselves in their daily work,” said Kathy Covert, Vice President, Human Resources. “It’s a celebration of the individuals who work at Schneck and a testament to their commitment to provide compassionate, quality healthcare to our patients and the communities we serve.”
 
Schneck Medical Center is one of only twenty organizations nationwide to receive the award.
