March 7, Morristown, NJ – Atlantic Health System, one of the largest health care organizations in New Jersey, has been named by global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE Magazine to FORTUNE® magazine’s list of “100 Best Companies to Work For®“ for an 8th consecutive year.
Ranking 79th on FORTUNE’s list, Atlantic Health System is the only hospital system from New Jersey on the list.
As the parent company of Morristown Medical Center in Morristown, Overlook Medical Center in Summit, Newton Medical Center in Newton, Chilton Medical Center in Pompton Plains, Goryeb Children’s Hospital and Atlantic Rehabilitation, Atlantic Health System appears on the prestigious list in the elite company of some of the country’s best-known and successful corporations, such as Google, Whole Foods and Ikea. The list will appear on newsstands on Monday, March 7.
In his first week after joining the organization in May 2015, president and CEO Brian Gragnolati embarked on a “Getting to Know You” tour of Atlantic Health System, where he met thousands of employees. Since then, he has held regular meetings with groups of employees to gain their insights and brainstorm ways to lead the organization into the future.
“Throughout these past months, I have had the opportunity to meet so many of our employees and discuss how we can create Atlantic Health System’s Trusted Network of Caring™,” said Gragnolati. “They will be crucial to delivering on that promise to our communities, and that begins with developing a supportive environment that reflects the value of the hard work they do every day.”
Gragnolati has been selected to deliver a presentation at the annual Great Place to Work conference in San Diego, April 6-8. His session will cover best practices for establishing and maintaining trust in an organization during a time of transformation.
Atlantic Health System was selected from among hundreds of companies vying for a place on the list this year. Applicant companies opt to participate in the selection process, which includes an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about their programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® then evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
The creators of the methodology behind the list, Great Place to Work®, have found that employees believe they work for great organizations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with.
“Now more than ever, it is important for companies to prove they are great workplaces,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “Top talent expects as much as they seek new opportunities, and customers are demanding it as well as they decide where to spend their dollars. The 100 best workplaces are at the top of the heap in demonstrating they have a high-trust, high-performing culture.”
Atlantic Health System’s ranking was driven by its employees’ positive responses to the FORTUNE questionnaire:
The organization has developed several ways to enable employees to recognize each other via the company’s intranet. Here, employees can post “Shout-Outs” about the accomplishments of their colleagues, showcase their organizational pride via On the Road photographs, and highlight specific departments in the daily “Good Morning Atlantic Health System” feature.
Atlantic Health System employees are offered numerous resources to help advance their careers, including:
Atlantic Health System also offers unique benefits designed for female workers, who make up about 76 percent of the organization’s workforce. These include:
