I’m happy to announce that ASHP has once again been named by The Washington Post
as one of the 2017 Top Workplaces
in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. As part of the Top Workplaces award, ASHP will be featured in a special section of The Washington Post
on Sunday, June 18, so pick up a copy of Sunday’s paper or check it out online.
The evaluation for the Top Workplaces program is based on feedback from an employee survey that many of our staff completed at the beginning of the year. Nearly 85 percent of staff members participated in the survey, and the results showed that our team appreciates the remarkable work culture we’ve created here at ASHP — a culture that engages our team members and inspires them to do their best work.
This year marks ASHP’s 75th anniversary, and I would like to thank our wonderful team for its longstanding dedication to our members, their patients, and the ASHP mission. We would not be where we are today without all of the hard work and enthusiasm of our team members as we lead the way to better patient care. We work hard to make ASHP a place where people can thrive, and this prestigious Top Workplaces award demonstrates the passion we have for supporting our members and each other.
This award is our third consecutive honor for being a top place to work, and I couldn’t be prouder of our team. In addition to being named a Washington Post
Top Workplace for both 2016 and 2017, ASHP was also recently recognized by Modern Healthcare magazine
as one of the 2017 Best Places to Work in Healthcare in the nation
. Together, these regional workplace awards in one of the most competitive job markets in the country, coupled with the national recognition from Modern Healthcare
, indicate that ASHP has distinguished itself from our peers across the country by creating a great place to work for employees.
As we celebrate the 75th anniversary of ASHP, I am honored and humbled by all that we’ve achieved throughout the years. As we’ve strived to make ASHP your professional home, we’ve also made great strides in making ASHP a home for our staff. By making sure our team members are happy, we can better serve your professional needs as pharmacists. Our success correlates directly with yours — and this success leads to better patient care.
Thank you for all that you do on behalf of your patients and for being members of ASHP.
