Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers has been awarded The Advisory Board Company’s 2017 Workplace of the Year Award. The annual award recognizes hospitals and health systems nationwide that have outstanding levels of employee engagement.
Morris Hospital measures employee engagement each year through an anonymous survey offered to all employees. Seventy-four percent of Morris Hospital’s employees participated in a 2016 online survey, conducted by The Advisory Board Company.
“The Advisory Board defines engaged employees as those who exhibit both loyalty and commitment to the organization,” explains Erin Murphy-Frobish, Vice President of Human Resources at Morris Hospital. “Engaged employees are willing to go above and beyond to help the organization succeed.”
Morris Hospital was one of 20 organizations in The Advisory Board’s national database recognized with the Workplace of the Year award for exhibiting the highest percentage of engaged employees and maintaining a percentage of disengaged employees below the national median.
The largest employer in Grundy County with over 1,200 employees, Murphy-Frobish says employee engagement is a top priority for Morris Hospital.
“Our goal is to make Morris Hospital an excellent place for employees to work,” she says. “Receiving the Advisory Board’s Workplace of the Year Award tells us we are achieving that.”
