PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Union was recognized today as the No. 1 company in the Medium Agency category in Medical Marketing & Media's (MM&M) inaugural Best Places to Work Class of 2018.
The Best Places to Work initiative aimed to highlight some of the most prominent, progressive agencies in the healthcare industry while exploring what keeps team members truly invested in their work and satisfied with their workplace. The winners, including Health Union, exemplify how successful employers listen to and empower their teams, help drive the collaboration necessary to improve workplace culture and show commitment to work-life balance.
"Being recognized by MM&M in its inaugural Best Places to Work feature solidifies what we've always known and what many people are quickly realizing: Health Union is the best place to work in the healthcare industry," said Health Union co-founder and CEO Olivier Chateau. "We've come a long way from just a few team members in 2010 to more than 120 full-time staff in 2018. And the fact that these rankings are based largely on employees' feedback shows just how important it is to build and maintain a culture and environment that makes people feel both genuinely appreciated and able to reach their full potential."
This recognition follows a pair of awards Health Union earned on the local level this year to celebrate its workplace culture and dedication to team members. The company was recognized as the No. 1 business in the small employer category in Philadelphia Media Network's 2018 Top Workplaces program and the No. 1 medium-sized company in the Philadelphia Business Journal's 2018 Best Places to Work program.
MM&M's inaugural Best Places to Work initiative, launched in July 2018, invited participating agencies to distribute survey questionnaires to their employees. After collating the scores and narrowing down a shortlist, MM&M convened a panel of staff and external judges — experts in talent recruitment within the healthcare marketing sector — to pick the winners.
