PEARLAND, Texas, Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Neighbors Emergency Center has been awarded the #1 midsize 2015 Top Workplace honor by the Houston Chronicle. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.
"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it's all about fancy perks and benefits," says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. "But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what's most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it's going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, "Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn't have a shot at being named a Top Workplace."
"Neighbors strives to create an extraordinary work environment and culture to allow our team members to render superior medical care," said Setul G. Patel, MD, MBA, CEO of Neighbors Emergency Center. "We are delighted to be recognized by a quality news team like the Houston Chronicle and Workplace Dynamics, and extremely proud of the entire Neighbors team!"
