DAVIE, Fla., Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bankers Healthcare Group, a leading provider of financial solutions for healthcare professionals, has been recognized by the South Florida Business Journal as one of the best places to work in South Florida, ranking No. 1 in the large company category.
"BHG is honored to be named South Florida's Best Place to Work," said BHG President and Co-Founder Bob Castro. "We pride ourselves on actively promoting a happy and healthy company culture in which each individual feels valued and motivated to excel."
The South Florida Business Journal partners with Quantum Workplace to conduct its annual Best Places to Work program. Employees are asked to fill out confidential online surveys and rate their employers. Quantum Workplace then analyzes the survey feedback to determine South Florida's best places to work.
A focus on health makes sense at a company that offers financial services exclusively to healthcare professionals. In addition to being recognized as a best place to work by the South Florida Business Journal, BHG has also received recognition as one of South Florida's Top Workplaces of 2015 by the Sun Sentinel and WorkplaceDynamics.
"At BHG, we pride ourselves in providing a vibrant, healthy work place for our employees, which is why we stress the importance of our organizational health and wellness programs," remarked Katie Barnes, human resource manager for Bankers Healthcare Group. "BHG's employee count has grown 27 percent within the last 6 months, which we believe is a direct reflection of our on-site benefits. We recognize that providing a great work atmosphere results in happy, productive employees who are exceeding company-wide goals and who truly enjoy coming to work every day."
BHG's corporate headquarters in Florida boasts an on-site gym with personal trainers and group fitness classes as well as a staffed cafeteria with a wide range of healthy meal options. Employees are encouraged to participate in small group workout and training sessions, further promoting BHG's goal of fostering a healthy and active lifestyle. BHG's organizational health committee constantly organizes educational programs and team events in an effort to promote individual growth as well as to facilitate communication between co-workers.
