(Arlington Heights, IL) - For the second consecutive year, the Gallup Organization has awarded the Alexian Brothers Health System one of its highest honors - the Gallup Great Workplace Award. The Alexian Brothers Health System is among only 25 organizations worldwide to receive the 2010 award, which is based on the most rigorous workplace research ever conducted.
A panel of workplace experts evaluated the award-winning organizations. “The winners of this award have established a new global standard for engaging people,” said Tom Rath, who leads Gallup’s Workplace and Leadership Consulting practice. “When compared to the millions of workgroups we have studied around the world, the awardees have worked tirelessly to create an environment that values people. They go far beyond trivial perks to ensure that each employee has an emotional connection to the company’s mission and growth.
“We are honored to once again receive this recognition,” said Mark Frey, president and CEO of the Alexian Brothers Health System. “The credit goes entirely to our employees for their commitment to our mission. We value every one of our employees and the personal contributions each of them makes to our organization. We believe a fully engaged workplace must be an environment where our employees know they have a voice and that when they speak, we are listening.”
The Gallup Great Workplace Award recognizes the best-performing workforces in the world. Applicants’ results are compared across a workplace research database composed of millions of work teams in more than 100 countries. A panel of workplace experts assesses the applicants’ results to select the winners.
