ATLANTA, Sept. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Alpharetta-based Jackson Healthcare, one of the nation's largest healthcare staffing and technology companies, was named "best place to work" by the Atlanta Business Chronicle in the extra-large company category.
This is the third consecutive year the publication has given the top prize to the company founded by its chairman and CEO, Richard L. Jackson.
According to Jackson Healthcare president, Shane Jackson, "I believe the primary reason we keep being recognized as a 'best place to work' is the result of something much more powerful than amenities and culture. It is the result of smart, talented people with shared values working to improve the lives of others."
This "others-first" worldview is one of five core values that drive Jackson Healthcare's organizational culture, which also include striving for excellence, doing the right thing, maximizing potential and esteeming the team. Everything from its corporate headquarters to its campus amenities to its charitable giving is designed with these values in mind.
With more than 1,100 associates nationwide, the company emphasizes fitness and wellness programs, comprehensive benefits and active support of charitable and community organizations to reinforce associates' commitment to culture and performance.
The Atlanta Business Chronicle rated extra-large companies, defined as those with 500 or more employees, with an employee survey by Quantum Workplace. The responses were rated on work environment, people practices and other matrices.
