Each year Modern Healthcare identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in the health care industry on a national level. Earlier this month NCCPA received word that for the second time it had been named to the publication’s annual list of the “Best Places to Work in Healthcare.”

 

The Best Places to Work in Healthcare awards program was created to recognize companies that continuously strive to improve their work environment and increase employee engagement, satisfaction and retention through innovative changes in the workplace. The annual recognition program also honors companies throughout the industry that empower employees to provide patients and customers with the best possible care, products and services.

 

To determine their list, Modern Healthcare collects information from each applicant's leadership team about the company's policies, practices, demographics, and benefits. The publication then surveys the company's staff about eight core areas: leadership and planning, corporate culture and communications, role satisfaction, work environment, relationship with supervisor, training/development/resources, pay and benefits and overall engagement. This year, organizations were also scored on how they navigated the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

"NCCPA’s leadership continuously strives to foster a culture where employees can thrive while engaging in meaningful work. The current pandemic has presented its challenges and has facilitated the need for NCCPA’s culture and operations to quickly adapt to a virtual environment,” said NCCPA President and CEO Dawn Morton-Rias, Ed.D, PA-C.

 

“Having our employees affirm our efforts in the eight core areas for a second year remains a tremendous honor, but knowing that they are also positively acknowledging our handling of the COVID-19 pandemic makes this year’s recognition feel all the more special.”

 

The list is open to U.S. health care providers, insurers, and suppliers with at least 25 employees that have been in business for at least a year. Applicants must be a for-profit business, a nonprofit business, or a government entity.

NCCPA will learn its official ranking on October 8 in conjunction with Modern Healthcare’s virtual Workplace of the Future Conference.
