Crete Area Medical Center (CAMC) is pleased to announce the results of its 2012 Employee Engagement Survey. Ranking in the top 99th percentile for the second year in a row, CAMC is a local and national leader for workforce engagement.
Eighty-five percent of employees completed the survey which included 46 questions related to how employees felt about working at the medical center. Facility results exceeded national peer benchmarks in every category.
“These results speak to our culture and the great team we have at CAMC,” said Carol Friesen, CEO at the medical center. “It takes a strong commitment from everyone to do what is best for our patients, our communities and our team members. Our team members have embraced the opportunity to live our mission and are privileged to be a part of redefining quality rural health care.”
Studies show that an engaged workforce results in better performance across an organization. Several factors combine to create an engagement index. These include:
- effective two-way communication between managers and staff
- employee awareness of how their job supports the organization’s initiatives and vision
- job provides mental stimulation
- opportunities for career growth/employee development
- relationship with managers and team members
- a sense of pride from being part of the organization
The survey was conducted by nationally recognized leader in healthcare engagement benchmarking, The Advisory Board.
