Metro Health Hospital Named to National Best & Brightest Companies to Work For™
For the second year in a row, Metro Health Hospital has again been named one of the nation’s Best & Brightest Companies to Work For™.
Metro Health is among the 194 businesses, including more than 30 from West Michigan, to be honored by the national 2014 awards. Nominees were evaluated in a number of categories, including communication, community initiatives, compensation and benefits, diversity and multi-culturalism, employee education and development, employee engagement and commitment, recognition and retention, recruitment and selection, and work-life balance.
An independent research firm reviewed a detailed survey on the hospital’s human resources practices. In reaching their decision, the judges were looking for above-average programs, services and solutions for employees, adaptation to new factors in the marketplace and unique thought processes that received support from senior management and policy makers.
In addition to receiving the 2014 and the 2013 national award, Metro Health has been recognized with 101 Best and Brightest awards for the West Michigan region for the past four years. The hospital received an Elite Award for its work-life balance initiatives in the local competition in 2011, its first year in the competition.
The Best and Brightest Companies to Work For is a program of the National Association for Business Resources.
