CHG Healthcare Best in Utah for Employee Appreciation

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - December 12, 2007) - CHG Healthcare Services, one of the oldest and largest healthcare staffing firms in the U.S., has been recognized for demonstrating exceptional employee appreciation by Utah Business magazine. The nomination is based on employee feedback gathered from a third-party source for the magazine's "Best Companies to Work for" feature appearing in the November issue.

CHG continually reminds its employees that they are appreciated through employee parties, luncheons and other special benefits and events throughout the year including President's Club, a rewards program for salespeople who meet their individual and company goals. Every year CHG hosts an "Employee Appreciation Week," during which employees are rewarded with everything from breakfasts served by management to free massages. Management also showed their appreciation to employees when they included special features and services, such as a fitness facility and food service, in the design of CHG's new corporate headquarters in Salt Lake City after a survey revealed many employees wanted these features.

The latest example of employee appreciation is CHG's MVP Awards, which recently were given to 12 individuals who best exemplify the company's core values as voted by their peers (numbering around 1,200 nationwide). MVP Award recipients from CHG's out-of-state offices were given an all-expense paid trip to Utah's capital city to accompany their fellow Salt Lake-based winners and company CEO, Michael Weinholtz, to the Utah Business "Best Companies to Work for" luncheon on December 12, 2007. They were also treated to a day of recognition and fun, including a carriage ride through downtown Salt Lake City and tour of Utah Olympic Park.

"We are very proud to be recognized for employee appreciation since it is at the core of everything we do as a company," said Mr. Weinholtz. "We work very hard every day to provide an environment that is attractive to our employees. Our people are the most important part of our business, and we want them to feel that way."
