Monroe County Hospital & Clinics has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 honor by The Des Moines Register. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, 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.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “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.”
“This honor speaks to the organizational culture at Monroe County Hospital & Clinics and all that each employee does to contribute. To receive this award four years in a row is an incredible achievement,” said Veronica Fuhs, CEO. “Our employees are what makes Monroe County Hospital & Clinics a great place to work. It’s what they do for each other, our patients, and our organization as a whole, that is rewarding!”
In addition to this honor, MCHC ranked fourth overall for employee engagement out of 50 mid-sized organizations and was named as the top organization out of all 135 workplaces for the outstanding relationships employees have with their manager. “Our leaders should be commended for their dedication to targeted employee engagement and overall care for our employees; making MCHC a great place to work,” said Veronica Fuhs, CEO.
