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.
At CHG, our culture and core values are at the heart of our 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, our customers, and our community.
Here are just a few of the reasons why millennials say they love working at CHG.
1. Connection to purpose
Our people work hard every day to place healthcare providers in temporary and permanent jobs in facilities across the country, especially rural areas. Last year alone, our people placed 12,000 providers who impacted more than 25 million patients.
But that’s just one way our people make a difference.
We also provide opportunities for employees to give back through programs like company-paid volunteer time off (VTO), humanitarian trips, team volunteer events, and our 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 we also raised more than $700,000 for local charities during our annual Making a Difference Week.
2. Flexible schedules
We understand the importance of finding a healthy balance between work and personal time. With this in mind, we’ve empowered our leaders to create flexible work schedules with their 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.
“CHG provides a great work/life balance,” says Megan Peters, senior marketing coordinator. “My leaders understand how important travel is to me and they will work with me on my schedule and timelines to accommodate trips.”
3. Growth and development opportunities
We believe 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.
We also support our people’s career interests through our tuition reimbursement program. After working at CHG for six months, employees are eligible to apply for reimbursement for any qualified course (even outside of their field). Tuition reimbursement ranges from $1,000 a year for newer 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. We encourage our people to take care of each other, which results in a workplace where coworkers aren’t just part of your team but are also like family.
“My coworkers make all the difference in my experience here at CHG,” shares Jessie Martin, assignment coordinator with our CompHealth division. “They are very positive, driven, kind, and funny. They take the stress away, and I feel like I’m part of a family because of the way we all take care of each other, listen to each other, and help each other.”
5. Invested in employees’ health and wellness
Taking care of our people is an important part of our culture. As part of our health and wellness program, we offer a variety of onsite amenities that make it easier for employees to stay healthy. One of these benefits is our onsite health clinic, where employees and their families have access to free healthcare, including primary care services, health coaching, and disease management. The clinic also dispenses nearly 40 medications at no cost, including antibiotics, antivirals, and starter packs for allergies.
In addition, our people 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 our casual dress code, we’ve created an open and respectful workplace that encourages diverse ideas and thinking. Our people 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 our people to share ideas and opportunities for improvement with anyone in the company, including executive leaders. In addition, we send out an employee opinion survey each year and make changes based on that feedback. In fact, our people were key contributors in deciding both the location of our new headquarters and the amenities in the new space.
