Voorhees, NJ (March 15, 2018) – Jefferson Health – New Jersey (formerly Kennedy Health) has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by Philadelphia Media Network. This marks the fifth consecutive year the South Jersey-based arm of Jefferson Health has been named a Top Workplace.
The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few.
“More than 3,800 of our employees were randomly selected to participate in this anonymous survey, and their feedback was very positive,” said Jefferson Health – New Jersey President Joseph W. Devine. “For the fifth year in a row, the survey results confirm that Jefferson Health – New Jersey is an excellent place to work – a place that our associates believe in and where they feel valued.”
Devine called the 2018 Top Workplace recognition “a true reflection” of the organization’s positive culture and commitment to its team members, as well as to the communities they serve.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey added. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
