MIAMI, July 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Place to Work Institute, an independent research and consulting firm, has honored ChenMed, a leading primary care medical practice serving Medicare-eligible seniors, with certification as a Great Place to Work. The certification process considered more than 1,400 employee surveys from across ChenMed's 80-plus locations. Certification is evidence of a great employee experience, and ChenMed did significantly better than most first-year Great Place to Work survey participants.
Great Place to Work evaluated more than 60 elements of team members' experience on the job. ChenMed ranked higher than the national average in areas that rated employee pride in the company's community impact, camaraderie, and celebration of special events. Other top-performing areas include feeling safe and respected at work, feeling welcome when joining the company, having a lot of responsibility, and feeling accomplishment and meaning in the work being done. Survey rankings measure consistency of employee experience, from every level of the organization.
"ChenMed has an amazing, diverse culture that focuses on our values of love, accountability and passion, and we're proud to be recognized for being a Great Place to Work," said Stephanie Chen, Chief Legal Counsel and Culture Officer at ChenMed. "Our rich history of diversity, hard work and economic vitality helps make us who we are, and our mission-focused employees work diligently to transform care of the neediest populations. We believe when team members are happy and engaged that they will provide better patient care, and our outcomes demonstrate it."
Iconic worldwide brands that also rely on Great Place to Work research include Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott and Four Seasons hotels; UKG, Cisco, Workday, and Salesforce Intuit technology firms; financial services giants Edward Jones, American Express, Capital One, Rocket Companies, Progressive Insurance, USAA and Bank of America; Delta Airlines, Genentech, Regeneron, Scripps Health, Texas Health Resources and Kettering Health Network.
As a market disruptor achieving double-digit growth every year, ChenMed is constantly recruiting primary care doctors and care team members who are committed to the company's mission and values. Employee benefits at ChenMed that make it a Great Place to Work include multiple health care and dental programs, health savings accounts, wellness credits on health care premiums and rewards for healthy behaviors, amongst other benefits that are being added with the feedback received from team members.
In addition, the company offers a competitive Shared Success Bonus Plan which rewards employees for doing their best for the business. And employees who refer candidates for hard-to-fill positions, such as primary care physicians, are eligible for referral bonuses.
"We applaud ChenMed for seeking certification and releasing its employees' feedback," said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung, of Great Place to Work's senior care affiliate Activated Insights. "These ratings measure its capacity to earn its own employees' trust and create a great workplace for high performance."
In addition to the Great Place to Work Certification, ChenMed was recently named as a Best Place to Work in IT by IDG's Insider Pro and ComputerWorld, a 2021 Healthiest Employer by South Florida Business Journal and a Fortune 2020 "Change the World" company.
