CCHS Receives Top Workplaces Award

September 18, 2017

ATLANTIC, IOWA – Cass County Health System has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Des Moines Register. This is the third consecutive year the health system has been honored. This year CCHS was ranked 25th among mid-size employers across the state, up eight spots from 2016. 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.”

“We have great bricks and mortar and top-of-the line equipment, but the secret sauce is our people,” said Brett Altman, Chief Executive Officer. “This award is a reflection on our great staff and their commitment to providing a superior experience for our patients and families.”
