COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2012) - Great Place to Work® has named Quantum Health as the #3 best workplace in the nation in their annual 2012 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published by FORTUNE magazine. For the second consecutive year, Quantum Health was selected from among hundreds of companies vying this year for a place on the list that recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace cultures.
Now in its ninth year, Great Place to Work® evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. Great Place to Work® has found that employees believe they work for great organizations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with. Organizations named on the list see many benefits, including better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.
Kara Trott, Quantum Health CEO, said, "This national level recognition is especially gratifying as we focus on our rapid growth goal of recruiting over 500 of the most thoughtful, talented employees in the next 2 years. Our culture of caring is directly tied to our mission to become the Best Loved Brand In Healthcare. We know this depends upon staffing up with exceptional individuals who get excited everyday about helping take the unnecessary costs and confusion out healthcare."
To release employee caring and maintain a culture where teammates can make a difference every day, Quantum Health provides its team members with fruit juices, teas & sodas, healthy snacks, fresh fruit & nuts, popcorn stations, endless chocolate, an on-site fitness center with chair massage, a game room, a serenity/meditation room and a "giving tree" to help employees overcome personal financial challenges, along with many other amenities and employee benefits. Additionally, Quantum Health actively promotes its CARE environment, teaching employees to maintain a commitment to open and honest communication, personal accountability, and being real and available to help out wherever needed, including "stuffing envelopes."
Susan Lucas-Conwell, Global Chief Executive Officer of Great Place to Work®, said, "The Best Small & Medium Workplace list grows more competitive every year and this list represents the best of the best. While each company is unique, what they have in common are strong cultures that support positive workplaces."
