(Greenwood, S.C., April 15, 2016) — Self Regional Healthcare, a not-for-profit healthcare system serving 250,000 residents of the Lakelands region, is a recipient of the Gallup Great Workplace Award for the ninth consecutive year. The Gallup Great Workplace Award honors organizations with engaged team members, enthusiastic and committed to their work.
Thirty-five organizations, including Self Regional, were honored with the 2016 Great Workplace Award. Other winning organizations include Regions Bank, Charles Schwab, and Hyatt Hotels Corporation.
“Receiving this award for the ninth year is a tremendous honor,” says Self Regional Healthcare President and CEO Jim Pfeiffer. “We continue to make strides in healthcare while still providing an engaged workplace for all team members. When our team members are engaged and happy in their professional environment patient care is at its best.”
Research performed by Gallup shows just 13% of employees in the United States are engaged in their jobs with an astounding 87% either not engaged or indifferent to their work. Fortunately, there are employee-focused companies committed to establishing value every day and setting the bar for great workplaces worldwide.
Gallup uses engagement surveys and high response rates to determine the award winners each year. Additionally, Gallup examines integrated engagement in strategy and leadership, accountability and performance, communication and knowledge management and development and ongoing learning. Winners of the award will be honored at the Gallup Summit, May 10-12, 2016 in Omaha, Nebraska.
