Advocate Health Care Again Named One of Chicago’s Top Workplaces
Downers Grove, IL – United Church of Christ-related Advocate Health Care has once again been named one of Chicago’s Top Workplaces by the Chicago Tribune.
The newspaper defines a Top Workplace as an “organization that is successful because its employees enjoy their work, embrace their mission and feel like valued teammates.”
“This recognition is a direct reflection of the energy, compassion and ingenuity that our physicians, nurses and associates bring to work with them each day,” said Jim Skogsbergh, president and chief executive officer of Advocate Health Care. “It’s our associates’ commitment to making our communities healthier and our patients happier that makes Advocate such a special place to work.”
The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on associate feedback surveys conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. Advocate associates were randomly selected to take part in this year’s annual survey, giving Advocate high marks for its culture of high performance and clear direction for the future, among other benefits.
The positive feedback places Advocate, which has more than 35,000 associates, among the top 25 largest companies in metro Chicago to achieve the recognition.
This is the fifth time that Advocate has earned the honor. Earlier this year, the Daily Herald Business Ledger also named Advocate as one of the Best Places to Work in Illinois.
