By The Paper staff

FORT WAYNE – For the fourth consecutive year, Parkview Health has earned the Advisory Board Workplace of the Year Award. The annual award recognizes hospitals and health systems nationwide that have outstanding levels of employee engagement.

“Our co-workers are our most valuable resource, so their engagement is very important to us,” said Dena Jacquay, chief human resources officer, Parkview Health. “When our co-workers are engaged and demonstrating the world-class teamwork we pride ourselves in, we’re able to provide the highest level of care to the communities we serve, and our teams have a workplace they can be proud of.”

Engaged employees, as defined by Advisory Board, are those who exhibit both loyalty and commitment to the organization. These employees are willing to expend discretionary effort, often going above and beyond to help the organization succeed. According to Advisory Board, the award recognizes Parkview’s commitment to creating a best-in-class work environment for its employees.

“In today’s changing and often uncertain healthcare industry, engaging the workforce is arguably more important than ever before,” said Sarah Rothenberger, managing director, Advisory Board Survey Solutions. “Not surprisingly, health care organizations with higher levels of staff engagement also have higher patient satisfaction scores, better staff retention and a stronger culture of safety. Our award winners have demonstrated an impressive ability to inspire the highest levels of engagement across the country while maintaining remarkably low levels of disengagement.”

Parkview Health is one of 20 organizations nationwide to receive the award.
