Shriners Hospitals for Children — Cincinnati has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by the Cincinnati Enquirer. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution and connection, to name a few.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day – the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
“This award tells our community that the Cincinnati Shriners Hospital is a place where employees feel professionally fulfilled and are personally committed to our mission of providing the highest quality, family-centered care to children in need and their families,” said Mark Shugarman, hospital administrator. “Making the Top Workplace list is a reflection of each and every person’s dedication and compassion for our patients. I am proud and honored to be a part of this very special organization.”
