DALLAS, April 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Beryl Companies, a technology-focused patient experience services company dedicated to improving relationships between healthcare providers and consumers, announced today a partnership with ASC Communications, publishers of Becker's Hospital Review and Becker's ASC Review, to recognize the 2011 recipients of the publications' prestigious "100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare" list. With Beryl's long history of success and commitment in corporate culture, the partnership is designed to promote the importance of creating a culture of excellence in the workplace, specifically among healthcare facilities, and to recognize the leaders of the best places to work.
"With Beryl's strong reputation and focus on improving the patient experience through its development of engaged employees, we feel they are the ideal partner to promote our annual 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare program," said Lindsey Dunn, editor in chief of Becker's Hospital Review. "The major changes currently taking place in healthcare will undoubtedly require many organizations to alter the way they do business, and we believe the most successful providers in the future will be those who have the most engaged employees. Beryl clearly sets the example for employee engagement, and we appreciate their insight about this important facet of organizational success."
Paul Spiegelman, founder and CEO of Beryl, is a recognized leader in employee satisfaction and creating a successful workplace, and author of "Why Is Everyone Smiling?" published by Brown Books. In his book, he describes how he created a thriving business by fostering loyalty and dedication in his employees through his company's Circle of Growth(SM) philosophy. According to this philosophy, the company focuses on building employee loyalty, which leads to customer loyalty, and loyal customers generate more profit, enabling Beryl to reinvest in its employees.
"Every day, I hear business leaders talk about how customer loyalty and customer satisfaction are their companies' number one goals, but you can't reach those goals if your employees aren't happy," said Spiegelman. "The healthcare organizations that will be honored by Becker's Hospital Review and Becker's ASC Review understand this concept. We're proud to recognize organizations that set the example of creating a strong culture as part of their strategy and commitment to provide excellent patient care with improved clinical outcomes."
For more than 25 years, Beryl has focused on making it easier for patients to access information and healthcare providers, and enhancing patients' interactions with physicians and hospitals. As part of this commitment, Beryl has made significant investments in people and technology to provide services that help healthcare organizations improve the patient experience. As such, Beryl has earned numerous recognitions from local, regional and national publications and organizations as a "best place to work."
The winning organizations of the 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare will be featured in the May/June issues of Becker's ASC Review and Becker's Hospital Review, as well as on the publications' websites at www.beckersasc.com and www.beckershospitalreview.com.
