CCHS Honored to be a 2016 Top Workplace

ATLANTIC, IOWA – Cass County Health System has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Des Moines Register. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.” Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

“It’s a very meaningful award because it comes from within – the people who work here, across all departments, have responded in an overwhelmingly positive way that CCHS is a great place to work,” said Denise Coder, Chief Human Resource Officer. “We are very proud of this award, but we’re most proud of the people who work here and the extraordinary things they do every day for our patients.”
