Hendrick joins elite group of three honored with eight Great Workplace Awards
Hendrick Health System announced today that it has received the Gallup Great Workplace Award for the eighth consecutive year. Of the 35 award recipients, only two other organizations have earned this distinction each year, with Hendrick as the only healthcare facility.
“We are pleased to be recognized again this year with 34 other outstanding organizations that span the globe,” said Tim Lancaster, president and CEO of Hendrick Health System. “Our organization is committed to making Hendrick a great place to work and practice. Ultimately, our patients benefit from being cared for by truly engaged medical staff and employees.”
The Gallup Great Workplace Award began in 2007 and is given annually to recognize the most engaged and productive workforces in the world. Each award recipient has linked engagement to business outcomes and integrated engagement into the areas of strategy, leadership, accountability, performance, communication, knowledge management, development and ongoing learning.
“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 tenets they practice have proven value in both thriving and struggling economies overall.”
This year’s winners are headquartered in a wide range of countries including the U.S., United Arab Emirates, Singapore, India and Thailand. Hendrick Health System is one of nine health systems to earn the prestigious award for 2014.
