The Denver Post names UCHealth among 2016 Top Workplaces

For the third straight year, the Denver Post is recognizing UCHealth as one of the best places to work in Colorado, and the health system is highlighted in The Denver Post Top Workplaces.

“It’s a true honor for UCHealth to be named to the Denver Post’s 2016 Top Workplaces list, especially because our employees were the judges for this,” said Dallis Howard-Crow, UCHealth chief human resources officer. “Each and every day we work to create an exceptional workplace for our employees and their families, because our team members are essential to UCHealth’s mission of providing the very best care for patients.”

The Top Workplaces list is based on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a Pennsylvania-based research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
