SALT LAKE CITY, March 3, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CHG Healthcare Services has been named one of the country's 100 Best Companies to Work For by FORTUNE magazine. CHG ranks No. 18 on the list, which recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace cultures. This is the seventh straight year that CHG has made the list.
"We're honored to once again be recognized as one of the nation's best workplaces," says Scott Beck, CEO of CHG Healthcare Service. "It's our people who make CHG a great place to work. Their dedication to our core values and the work they do each day makes a meaningful difference in our communities and in the lives of the healthcare providers we serve — and ultimately the patients these providers help. That's what our culture is all about."
Each year, hundreds of companies apply for this recognition, which requires an anonymous employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about company programs and practices. Applications are evaluated based on a company's credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
"Culture starts with listening to your people and then making improvements based on their feedback," Beck says. "When you give employees a voice, they take ownership in the culture and make it even stronger."
CHG is committed to its core value of Putting People First and ensures all company decisions are made with the best interests of the employees in mind. The result is an atmosphere of respect, caring, support, and fun. Employees feel free to be themselves and are passionate about the work they do.
The company offers its employees a variety of unique perks, including:
- Difference Makers Award — Employees nominate peers who make a significant difference in their communities. Four finalists and their guests then participate in a company-sponsored service project and safari in Kenya.
- Volunteer Time Off — Each employee receives paid time off to volunteer in the community. In 2015, CHG employees performed 4,000 hours of service.
- Free Onsite Health Clinics – Employees and their families receive free onsite healthcare, including primary care services, health coaching, and disease management.
- Employee Compassion Fund — Funded by employees, for employees, the compassion fund provides tax-free financial grants to help employees facing financial hardships.
CHG employs more than 2,000 people in seven offices across the country, including Utah, Florida, North Carolina, Connecticut, Michigan, and Oklahoma. In 2015, CHG's healthcare staffing companies placed more than 12,000 medical providers across the country who served 21 million patients.
