Memorial Health System Receives Workplace of the Year Award from
The Advisory Board Company
Local institution honored as a national leader in driving employee engagement
(April 11, 2017, Marietta, Ohio) – Memorial Health System 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. Memorial Health System is one of twenty organizations nationwide to receive the award.
“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. The award recognizes Memorial Health System’s commitment to creating a best-in-class work environment for its employees.
“We are honored to achieve this distinction from the prestigious Advisory Board Company,” said Memorial Health System President and CEO Scott Cantley. “Employees are the key to building a great patient experience. We pride ourselves on offering not only a great experience for our patients but also the best work experience for our employees.”
