I’m delighted to announce that ASHP has been named by The Washington Post
as one of the 2016 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 19, so pick up a copy of Sunday’s paper or check it out online.
I’d like to thank the entire ASHP team for sharing with the world what it’s like to work for ASHP and for making ASHP such a great place to work!
Late last year we decided to participate in The Washington Post
’s prestigious Top Workplaces contest. Top Workplaces are chosen based solely on confidential employee engagement surveys that are conducted by an independent third party selected by The Washington Post
. More than 90 percent of staff members participated in the survey, which The Washington Post
noted was an exceptionally high response rate.
Based on the survey results, our team showed a remarkably high level of employee satisfaction. Our staff are connected to the meaningful teamwork they do for our members. They feel their participation in decision-making is welcomed and their opinions are valued. And they have a respect for the leadership of ASHP and the direction we are taking as we work together to advance healthcare. Employees truly believe in our organization, and that’s what makes ASHP a Top Workplace.
Top Workplaces are not only better places to work, but are also more likely to be successful than their peer organizations. In addition to showcasing the health of ASHP, this prestigious award also conveys an elite recruiting status on our organization. As a Top Workplace in one of the most competitive job markets in the country, we now have a distinct advantage in hiring the best talent that the Washington, D.C., area and beyond has to offer. As you can see, our success correlates directly with your success, and we will continue to find even better ways to support our members, our patients and their care, and our people here at ASHP.
As we approach the 75th anniversary of ASHP, I couldn’t be prouder of all that we’ve accomplished. Making sure our team members are happy and productive is a very large part of that.
Thank you for all that you do on behalf of your patients and for being members of ASHP.
