United Hospital District has been named one of the Top 200 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune.
The award is based on feedback from an employee satisfaction survey conducted earlier this year by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health and satisfaction. Top Workplaces analysis included responses from over 79,000 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.
UHD was ranked #68 on the midsize company list, which includes businesses with 100-500 employees. “We are honored to receive this recognition,” stated UHD Chief Executive Officer Rick Ash. “We’re thankful to the many UHD employees who responded and provided feedback to the Top Workplaces survey. The most important part of ensuring high quality healthcare for the communities we serve is a combination of high quality staff and a workplace culture of excellence. UHD strives to be the best workplace for our valued employees by providing a strong work/life balance and a framework for success that allows our staff to develop to their fullest potential.”
Ash added that UHD’s overall employee engagement was above the benchmark average for the Hospitals and Health Systems industry, which included 28 similarly sized organizations from around the country.
To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Over 4,000 companies were invited to participate.
