Hendrick joins elite group of three honored with seventh Gallup Great Workplace Award
Hendrick Health System was recently recognized as one of only three organizations worldwide with the 2013 Gallup Great Workplace Award and the only healthcare facility that appears on the list of seven-time winners. ABC Supply Co., Inc. and Winegardner & Hammons, Inc. are the other two organizations honored for the seventh year in a row. Additionally Hendrick is the only Texas organization to be honored.
This year, Hendrick was among the list of 32 organizations selected for the award. These distinguished organizations span the globe and represent all facets of business, from healthcare to hospitality, retail to manufacturing, and banks to insurance.
“We are very proud to earn the Gallup Great Workplace Award for the seventh year in a row,” said Tim Lancaster, president and CEO of Hendrick Health System. “We have exceptional employees that give 100% to their jobs and at the same time understand the importance of encouraging each other.”
The Gallup Great Workplace Award began in 2007, and is given annually to recognize the most engaged and productive workforces in the world. To receive the award, Hendrick participated in Gallup’s survey of employees around the world, which evaluates 12 criteria of engaged workforces using a 12-question survey.
The award is based on survey results and a best practices portfolio summarizing the steps the organization has taken to increase workforce engagement. To be eligible, organizations must have a sample size of at least 1,000 employees with at least 80 percent of employees responding to the survey. Applicants’ results are compared across a Gallup workplace research database comprised of millions of work teams in more than 120 countries. A panel of workplace experts assesses the applicants’ results to select the winners
"These award-winning organizations set a new standard for workplace excellence,” said Dr. James Harter, Chief Scientist for Gallup. “They have proven track records for improving lives along with performance. The management tenet they practice have proven value in both thriving and struggling economies overall.”
Winners of the 2013 award will be presented with a physical award at the Gallup Summit, May 7-9, 2013. During the summit, Hendrick Medical Center will present best practices they applied to their workplaces and discuss the improved business results they achieved through building an engaged workforce.
