PHS Named the 2017 #2 Midsize Workplace in Minnesota
Each year, the Star Tribune puts out a list of the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota – a roundup of companies that demonstrate their strength, culture, and employee satisfaction through the results of surveys. It recognizes companies in sectors from realtors and construction to banks and healthcare, all with one common denominator: a staff of people who love their work.
Loving What We Do At #2
PHS has been proud to place in the top 10 midsize companies since 2011, and was especially honored when the results of the 2017 survey came out last Wednesday and named our company the #2 midsize workplace in MN.
To make the results even sweeter, we also took home the Top Workplaces Manager Award – a reflection of the work our leaders do to help employees learn, grow, and do their job as well as possible. Recently, we brought the Star Tribune out to a patient home to highlight the work our nurses do each day, and also welcomed them to the office – check out the video on the Star Tribune website.
Gaining Insight From Feedback
While it’s meaningful to accept these awards, the most impactful part of this survey is seeing the responses our employees provide. It offers opportunities for growth, recognition of what is going well, and a chance for our employees to share their opinion on the workplace and culture. This feedback can impact how decisions within the company are made, and serves as a pulse on the health of Pediatric Home Service.
“Regardless of their role, our staff come to work each day knowing they’re making a difference in the lives of children with complex medical needs,” says Mark Hamman, president at PHS. “When they enjoy the culture they walk into and feel valued for what they do, everybody benefits – so we put a lot of importance on making sure we keep the satisfaction of our employees high on our radar.”
We celebrate this award while also keeping our focus on the real reason PHS employees put everything into the work they do each day – to help kids thrive at home.Originally published: June 28, 2017
