CHG Healthcare ranks No. 46 on People magazine’s first annual list of 50 Companies that Care. The list identifies the top companies in the country “that show extraordinary compassion for their employees, their communities and the environment as well as being military friendly and embracing diversity.”
Our commitment to Putting People First creates a culture of caring and respect and encourages our people to take care of each other and to make a difference in the lives of our clients and providers and to the communities we serve.
Here are five ways you can make a difference at CHG:
Volunteer Time Off
Each year, employees receive eight hours of paid time off to volunteer at a nonprofit of their choice. In 2016, our people used more than 6,000 hours of VTO to serve in the community.
Difference Makers Award
Employees nominate peers who make a significant difference in their communities. Last year, four finalists and their guests joined the CEO on a company-sponsored service project and safari in Kenya. This year, CHG will send six Difference Makers to Kenya for another company-sponsored humanitarian trip.

Employee Compassion Fund
Funded by employees, for employees, the CHG Compassion Fund provides need-based grants to employees facing financial hardship. Thanks to employee donations and fundraising events like the Compassion Fund 5K, CHG was able to award 29 grants, totaling $40,000, to help team members who fell on hard times last year.
Making a Difference Week
Each year, employees participate in a variety of fun activities, including pizza-eating contests, live auctions, Hot Wheels races and bingo, to raise money for local charities like the United Way, Make-a-Wish Foundation and SheJumps. In 2016, CHG raised more than $700,000.
CHG has partnered with Amizade and CHOICE Humanitarian to give employees the opportunity to participate in a voluntary humanitarian trips to the Navajo Nation and Guanajuato, Mexico.
