CHG Healthcare has once again been named to Fortune magazine’s list of 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials, ranking No. 35 this year. The list is based on an employee survey that assesses an organization’s fairness, teamwork, benefits, and other elements essential to an outstanding work culture.
CHG’s culture and core values are at the heart of its organization and create a workplace that’s not only fun, but inclusive, meaningful, and supportive. Employees have the opportunity to grow their careers and know that they make a difference every day to each other, their customers, and the community.
“We work every day to create a culture that is built on trust, transparency, and caring,” says Scott Beck, CHG Healthcare CEO. “People love being a part of the CHG family because the work they do gives them the opportunity to make a difference in their communities and around the world.”
Here are just a few of the reasons millennials say they love working at CHG.
1. Making a Difference Is a Company Priority
CHG provides opportunities for employees to give back through programs like company-paid volunteer time off (VTO), humanitarian trips, team volunteer events, and the Employee Compassion Fund — which provides need-based grants to employees facing financial hardships. Last year, employees not only used more than 6,600 hours of VTO to serve in the community, but the company also raised more than $700,000 for charity during its annual Making a Difference Week.
2. Flexible schedules
CHG understands the importance of finding a healthy balance between work and personal time. With this in mind, the company empowers leaders to create flexible work schedules with employees to find an optimal balance between their job and personal responsibilities. Alternate work schedules include flextime, job sharing, a compressed workweek, telecommuting, and regular part-time work.
3. Growth and development opportunities
CHG believes in developing the whole person, not just training for the job. From new employees to company veterans, CHG’s award-winning training programs offer a wide-range of learning and development opportunities to help employees remain competitive in their roles and enhance their personal growth. The company also supports its people’s career interests through its tuition reimbursement program with reimbursement amounts ranging from $1,000 a year for new employees to more than $5,000 a year for tenured team members.
4. The people
One of the biggest reasons employees like working at CHG is because of the people they work with. CHG encourages its people to take care of each other, which results in a workplace where coworkers aren’t just part of the team but are also like family.
5. Invested in employees’ health and wellness
As part of its health and wellness program, CHG offers a variety of onsite amenities that make it easier for employees to stay healthy. One of these benefits is the company’s onsite health clinic, where employees and their families have access to free healthcare, including primary care services, health coaching, and disease management. In addition, employees have access to an onsite gym or can participate in fitness classes, including yoga, kickboxing, dance fitness, and meditation — all at no cost.
6. Inclusive environment
In addition to having a casual dress code, CHG has created an open and respectful workplace that encourages diverse ideas and thinking. Employees know their opinions are valued and that no matter who they are, what they believe, or what they look like, they’re free to be themselves. The result is an atmosphere of caring, respect, and trust.
7. Every employee’s voice matters
CHG’s emphasis on open, transparent communication empowers its people to share ideas and opportunities for improvement with anyone in the company, including executive leaders. In addition, the company sends out an employee opinion survey each year and makes changes based on that feedback. In fact, CHG’s employees were key contributors in deciding both the location of its new headquarters and the amenities in the new space.
While many companies report high turnover among younger workers, an average of 85 percent of millennial front-line employees at the Best Workplaces say they want to work at their organizations for a long time.
“Millennials expect more from their employers in areas like fair treatment, clear communication, authentic leadership and opportunities for advancement ‚Äì and rightly so. The Best Workplaces for Millennials are finding that fulfilling all these expectations by building a high-trust culture boosts millennial employees’ intent to stay by 20 times,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.
The Best Workplaces for Millennials is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based on employee feedback. CHG Healthcare also ranked as a Best Workplace for Parents, Women, and Giving Back, as well as one of People magazine’s 50 Companies that Care.
CHG employs more than 2,500 people in eight offices across the country, including Utah, Florida, North Carolina, Connecticut, Michigan, and Oklahoma. Last year, CHG’s healthcare staffing companies placed more than 12,000 medical providers across the country who served 25 million patients.
