Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) is one of the “Top 150 Workplaces in Atlanta” for a sixth consecutive year according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC). NGHS is also one of only 25 large companies (more than 500 employees) to make the list.
The recognition is based on direct feedback from NGHS employees collected through a survey conducted by the AJC and its partner, Workplace Dynamics. Some of the feedback from that survey that led to NGHS’ Top Workplaces award included statements such as:
- “I feel I am making people’s lives better.”
- “I am given the opportunity to grow.”
- “As hard as we work, we also find time to laugh.”
- “I feel like I make a difference in people’s lives.”
“Comments like these illustrate the pride our employees take in proving the highest quality patient care,” says Carol Burrell, president and CEO of NGHS. “Having employees who bring their best every day is the reason we have been named to this list six years in a row, in addition to being named Georgia’s #1 Hospital for three consecutive years.”
More than 2,500 companies were nominated or asked to participate in the 2016 survey conducted by the AJC and Workplace Dynamics. Workplace Dynamics then surveyed almost 60,000 employees from finalist companies. Each company was graded using employees’ responses to several questions about factors such as work conditions, management, pay, benefits and career paths.
