Fort HealthCare is pleased to announce that the organization has once again been named a ‘Top 100 Workplace’ by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The honor was announced in a special "Top 100 Workplaces" section in the Sunday, May 22 edition of the newspaper. The section profiles high-performing companies, including Fort HealthCare.
In an article titled, “Hiring perks up in Wisconsin,” Fort HealthCare’s senior human resources partner Lesa Radloff was quoted, emphasizing the importance of social and communication skills. “The technical side is great, but it becomes the ‘people’ side that is really important,” she remarked.
The ‘Top Workplaces’ recognition is given to the leading workplaces in the southeastern Wisconsin based on employee opinions collected through an anonymous survey. The results of the employee survey were compared across participating organizations, with the best 100 companies appearing on the list; Fort HealthCare ranked 13th, higher than the 2010 rank, among employers with 500 or more employees.
In these challenging economic times, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel set out to see what businesses are doing to keep their employees content and productive. Working with survey company WorkplaceDynamics, the Journal Sentinel asked employees to rank their company or organization on criteria including how valued they feel, pay and benefits, management capabilities, career advancement opportunities, flexibility of working conditions and many more topics. Rankings are based on input from a large percentage of workers at each nominated organization. Over 600 employees completed the surveys.
"This repeat recognition is a great achievement for us. It is thanks in large part to our ‘Culture of Respect’ and the values our employees are challenged to uphold," said Mike Wallace, President & CEO of Fort HealthCare. "We strive to maintain a work environment that allows for personal accomplishment and rewards results. There is no doubt that Fort HealthCare’s success is entirely attributable to the quality, dedication, and desire that our employees, working with medical staff, bring to their jobs each and every day to ensure we are doing what is right for our patients.
Nancy Alstad, director of human resources added, "Achieving the distinction of being a Top Workplace demonstrates that Fort HealthCare stands out as an ethical, caring employer with good leadership and development opportunities for staff. This recognition honors the hard work that every employee contributes to make our company a great place to work."
