PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Health Union, LLC was named a 2018 Philadelphia Top Workplace by Philadelphia Media Network (parent company of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News, and Philly.com). The Top Workplaces, announced today on Philly.com, recognizes companies that excel in creating a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement. Top Workplaces are not only better places to work, but have a competitive advantage compared to peer organizations, according to Energage, LLC, the company that administered the employee survey.
"We are honored to be named a winner of the 2018 Top Workplaces Award in the Philadelphia area," said Health Union Co-founder and CEO, Olivier Chateau. "We know that creating a great company culture is about more than perks. It's about building a company with purpose, attracting the best talent, and helping people achieve their potential."
Health Union, founded in 2010, integrates the power of human connections with technology to help people live better with challenging health conditions. Today, Health Union manages 17 condition-specific online ecosystems – web, social media, mobile – that provide safe and supportive environments for people to learn, to connect with others, and to share the experiences of life with chronic health conditions, like migraine, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and lung cancer. The self-funded startup that began in a basement eight years ago, now occupies over 13,000 sq. ft. of office space in Center City Philadelphia where 80+ employees, and growing, come to work (and play).
"Top Workplaces is more than just recognition," said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. "Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results."
The Top Workplaces award is based solely on employee feedback gathered by a third-party survey administered by Energage, LLC (formerly Workplace Dynamics). The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, effectiveness, connection, and management. Only 125 companies in Delaware Valley are awarded the Top Workplace distinction.
"Becoming a Top Workplace isn't something organizations can buy," Claffey said. "It's an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It's a big deal."
