Teaneck, NJ – May 8, 2012 – For the seventh consecutive year, Holy Name Medical Center has been named among the “100 Best Places to Work in New Jersey” by NJBIZ magazine. Holy Name has achieved recognition for workplace excellence in the large employer category every year since 2006.
According to NJBIZ, the survey and award program identifies and honors the best places of employment, which benefit the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses. Companies from across the state enter a two-part application process that begins with an examination of workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics, worth 25% of the total evaluation. The second part, worth 75%, consists of confidential surveys to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determine the top companies and the final ranking. The overall registration and survey process is managed by Best Companies Group (BCG), which analyzes the data and determined the final rankings.
“As a new member of the Holy Name family, I’m incredibly impressed with the expertise and dedication I’ve witnessed, and I’m happy to be part of an organization that is accomplished in so many areas,” says April Rodgers, Vice President for Human Resources at HNMC, where about 2,500 medical, nursing and allied health professionals, as well as non-clinical staff, are employed. “Holy Name has a positive working environment focusing on quality, safety and patient satisfaction. The pride our employees take in their jobs and their enthusiasm is very evident in the care they give our patients.”
Ms. Rodgers explains that the Medical Center shows its employees how much they are valued not only by offering them benefits and amenities aimed at improving their quality of life, but by empowering them to use their skills, advance professionally, and to think creatively.
The Medical Center has also received awards for workplace excellence for four consecutive years from Modern Healthcare magazine’s “Best Places to Work in Healthcare” program and from Companies That Care’s “Honor Roll” for three years in a row.
