SOUTH JORDAN, Utah, July 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2015, Alliance Health saw 122 internal promotions, as well as 213 department transfers. The company is committed to retaining top talent and promoting current employees to internal positions that best fit their interests and talents, rather than losing them to another company. Promoting employees from within Alliance Health is a key component of the cultural values of the company.
"Alliance Health's employee base has grown by 76% over the past two years," said Jeff Smith, CEO of Alliance Health. "Because of our rapid growth, we find it crucial that we give opportunities to our employees to build their career and boost morale. We provide them with management and leadership trainings, a professional development program and the potential to be promoted. I have seen firsthand that when our employees grow and excel, so does the company."
The executive team at Alliance Health recognizes that internal job promotions are necessary in Utah's competitive job market. The low unemployment rate in the State of Utah is 3.4% (compared to 5.0% in the United States overall) which means candidates are competing for jobs at innovative companies.
"It is refreshing to work for a company that not only values the development of the individual, but is centered on doing good," said Robb Lifferth, Vice President of Human Relations. "Our management team is maniacally focused on hiring and retaining ambitious and talented employees who want to push themselves daily. Despite the increase in external hiring we have done, we make it a point to make employees feel valued and a part of a culture where they can develop professionally."
Alliance Health is being recognized in Salt Lake and Utah County as an innovative company to work for. The company was named the Fastest Growing Company in 2015 by Utah Business Magazine. It ranked first for the Fast 50 award among Utah companies who were recognized for their entrepreneurialism, innovative business tactics and rapid revenue growth.
