CHG Named a Top Ten Staffing Company

Staffing Industry Analysts Honors Healthcare Staffing Firm for Engaging Employees

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - December 18, 2009) - Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) named CHG Healthcare Services to its first-ever Best Staffing Firms to Work For 2009 list, a ranking of the top ten leaders in the staffing industry when it comes to developing engaged internal employees.

CHG received the honor based on its commitment to a healthy work/life balance, investment in its own extensive training programs, and efforts to maintain open and candid channels of communication between employees and executives.

"We're proud to receive this recognition because it just confirms we're doing the right thing by creating and encouraging a people-centric workplace," said Mr. Don DeCamp, CHG's Chief People Officer. "Our first core value is Putting People First, and it's reassuring to know the hard work on behalf of our employees is paying off."

Both company and employee surveys determined the rankings for SIA's list. The company survey covered topics like benefits, retention, time and flexibility, and training. The employee survey asked workers to address issues such as development, meaningful work, teamwork, and trust and fairness.

Research firm Valtera partnered with SIA to conduct the study to determine which staffing firms had the most engaged employees, based on the following behaviors: high levels of effort; persistence at difficult tasks over time; helping others; going beyond the norms or expectations of the workplace; voicing recommendations for change to improve things; expanding one's role or responsibilities in response to a team or organizational need; and adapting to and even facilitating change to improve the work, the workplace and organizational effectiveness.

"Having highly engaged employees benefits us as the employer because they contribute heavily to making CHG a great place to work. But it also benefits our candidates and clients when our employees genuinely care about their jobs and are committed to doing their best," said Mr. DeCamp.

The CHG family of companies comprises CompHealth, Weatherby Locums, RN Network, Foundation Medical Staffing, and AHR Pharmacy Solutions.
