CHG Healthcare Services Makes Top 3 of FORTUNE's "100 Best Companies to Work For"

Utah Company Moves Up Six Spots From Last Year, Achieving the Highest Ranking Ever for a Healthcare Industry Provider

SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 01/17/13 -- CHG Healthcare Services is one of the Top 3 workplaces in the U.S., according to FORTUNE magazine's 2013 list of 100 Best Companies to Work For in America. CHG claims the No. 3 spot, after making the list for the fourth consecutive year and the Top 10 for two years in a row. It is the only company headquartered in Utah to make the list.

CHG employs more than 1,500 people across seven offices nationwide, which are located in Salt Lake City, Utah; Edmond, Okla.; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Boca Raton, Fla.; Cary, N.C.; Norwalk, Conn.; and Grand Rapids, Mich. It is the parent company to several healthcare staffing brands, which helped put to work in 2011 almost 8,000 medical professionals, who provided care to nearly 7 million people nationwide.

The company often touts its values-driven culture that focuses on Putting People First. "It's not just a feel-good strategy; it's our business strategy," says company CEO, Michael Weinholtz. "When you've got great people who come to work motivated and engaged every day, you are going to win the day every day."

To be considered for the Best Companies honor, CHG underwent an extensive audit commissioned by FORTUNE in partnership with the Great Place to Work Institute, a research and consulting company. Two-thirds of CHG's score is based on the result of a "trust index survey," which is sent to a random sample of employees. The survey probes employees for their attitudes about management credibility, job satisfaction and camaraderie. The other third asks questions about pay, benefits, hiring practices, internal communication, diversity efforts, and recognition programs.

Among the factors that catapulted CHG to the Top 3 was achieving 90th percentile scoring in every category of the trust index survey, along with its employee offerings such as a comprehensive wellness program, on-site healthcare and fitness centers, and daily recognition efforts.

In a celebration at CHG's headquarters in Holladay, a suburb of Salt Lake City, Mr. Weinholtz lauded employees for their role in earning the recognition. "You helped make this a great place to work so thank you, everybody, and congratulations." He then gave a playful jab to the list's top spot holder, "Google, don't get too comfortable -- we're closing in fast!"

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
