SALT LAKE CITY, April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Catalyst, a leader in data analytics, decision support and outcomes improvement, is one of 37 global companies to receive the 2017 Gallup Great Workplace Award. The award was created to recognize organizations for their extraordinary ability to create engaged workplace cultures that drive business outcomes.
Health Catalyst joins a prestigious group of organizations that average a ratio of 14 engaged employees to one actively disengaged employee, which is more than seven times the rate in the U.S. and more than 15 times the rate for workforces globally. Gallup research shows that worldwide, just 16% of employees are engaged in their jobs—meaning they are highly involved in and enthusiastic about their work and are psychological "owners" who drive performance and innovation to move the organization forward.
First named to the list in 2016, Health Catalyst remains the only healthcare technology company and one of the few technology companies of any kind to win the award, which premiered in 2007. Other previous and current Great Workplace Award winners include CarMax, Charles Schwab, Cleveland Clinic, Hyatt Hotels, Intermountain HealthCare, Nationwide Insurance, Wells Fargo and other international brands.
"We are honored to be recognized again as one of the world's most engaging workplaces by Gallup," said Health Catalyst CEO Dan Burton. "Our mission of enabling massive healthcare improvements through the use of data and analytics is one that attracts smart, hardworking and humble people. There's nothing more engaging than seeing firsthand how your work is helping more people get better medical care, while improving the efficiency of great teams of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals."
Gallup's rigorous scientific research links employee engagement to nine integral performance outcomes: customer metrics, profitability, productivity, turnover, employee and patient safety incidents, shrinkage, absenteeism, and quality. Companies with this winning combination have a competitive edge — organizations with highly engaged workforces can grow at a rate that is 4.3 times greater than that of their competitors.
"The world's top-performing organizations help lead the global economy by engaging their workforces," said Jim Harter, Ph.D., Gallup's chief scientist of workplace management and well-being. "Gallup's Great Workplace Award winners understand and acknowledge the importance of employee engagement by making it a vital part of their organization while using it as a driving force to create real business outcomes."
The Gallup honor is one of 26 regional and national "best workplace" awards earned by Health Catalyst, including awards from Glassdoor, Fortune, Forbes, Inc., Entrepreneur, Modern Healthcare, and the Salt Lake Tribune.
