Parrish Medical Center (PMC) has earned a top award for excellence in how employees view their workplace from The Jackson Group, a company serving more than 200 healthcare organizations in the U.S. and Great Britain.
The Laureate Award for Workplace Excellence is earned by fewer than five percent of healthcare organizations surveyed by the company.
The Laureate Award is earned only after employee survey results are certified and the surveyed organization's internal work plans for continuous improvement are reviewed.
The Jackson Group, based in Hickory, N.C., works with some 220 clients in 38 states and Great Britain.
Some 76.5 percent of PMCs workforce responded to the survey; a 68 percent response rate is considered statistically significant. Survey results showed that 93.3 percent of employees indicated they are proud to work for PMC, and 92 percent indicated the person to whom they report seriously considers staff suggestions for improving safety or preventing errors. PMC exceeded established workplace excellence criteria.
