Rutland Regional Medical Center receives 2018 Workplace of the Year Award

Rutland, Vermont: Rutland Regional Medical Center has been awarded the Advisory Board 2018 Workplace of the Year Award. The annual award recognizes hospitals and health systems nationwide that have outstanding levels of employee engagement. Lesley Classen, Rutland Regional’s Manager of Employee Relations & Recruitment, accepted the award on behalf of the hospital at The Advisory Board Company’s annual summit held on March 29, in Chicago, Illinois. Rutland Regional is one of only 20 hospitals recognized nationwide and the ONLY HOSPITAL IN VERMONT to receive this award.

“In today’s changing and often uncertain healthcare industry, engaging the workforce is arguably more important than ever before,” said Sarah Rothenberger, Managing Director, Advisory Board Survey Solutions at The Advisory Board Company, “Engaged staff don’t just enjoy their jobs and their workplace – they’re willing to go above and beyond to help their organization succeed. Not surprisingly, healthcare organizations with higher levels of staff engagement also have higher patient satisfaction scores, better staff retention, and a stronger culture of safety. Our award winners have demonstrated an impressive ability to inspire the highest levels of engagement across the country while maintaining remarkably low levels of disengagement.”

Engaged employees, as defined by Advisory Board, are those who exhibit both loyalty and commitment to the organization. These employees are willing to expend discretionary effort, often going above and beyond to help the organization succeed. This award recognizes Rutland Regional Medical Center’s commitment to creating a best-in-class work environment for its employees.

“We are so pleased for the employees of Rutland Regional in receiving this noteworthy recognition,” said Brian Kerns, Vice President of Human Resources for Rutland Regional Medical Center. “This award is reflective of the supportive and caring work environment the leaders of Rutland Regional create which encourages employees to commit their hearts and minds to the organization in support of our mission. We are very proud to work with an extraordinary family of employees who make Rutland Regional a great place to work as well as a place to receive exceptional care.”
