University of Utah Health has been awarded the Advisory Board 2018 Workplace of the Year Award. The annual award recognizes hospitals and health systems nationwide that have outstanding levels of employee engagement. 

“In today’s changing and often uncertain health care industry, engaging the workforce is arguably more important than ever before,” said Sarah Rothenberger, Managing Director, Advisory Board Survey Solutions. “Engaged staff don’t just enjoy their jobs and their workplace—they’re willing to go above and beyond to help their organization succeed. Not surprisingly, health care organizations with higher levels of staff engagement also have higher patient satisfaction scores, better staff retention, and a stronger culture of safety. Our award winners have demonstrated an impressive ability to inspire the highest levels of engagement across the country while maintaining remarkably low levels of disengagement.”

Engaged employees, as defined by Advisory Board, are those who exhibit both loyalty and commitment to the organization. These employees are willing to expend discretionary effort, often going above and beyond to help the organization succeed. The award recognizes University of Utah Health’s commitment to creating a best-in-class work environment for its employees. 

“In everything we do and stand for, we are invested in giving people a reason to come work here and to keep working here,” said Gordon Crabtree, CEO for University of Utah Health. “The 2018 Workplace of the Year Award is a direct reflection of the pride our employees take in their work and their commitment to advancing something bigger than themselves. In addition to the Workplace of the Year Award, we also have our employees to thank for our national ranking as a top 10 academic medical center for quality and safety for eight consecutive years.”

University of Utah Health is one of twenty organizations nationwide to receive the award.
