As an Emory Healthcare team member, I can truly say working amongst the multifaceted team of exceptional individuals at Emory is a powerful and rewarding experience. My peers at Emory Healthcare agree, as is evident from the feedback our team provided to The Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) resulting in Emory Healthcare being named one of the best places to work in Atlanta, and specifically, one of the top 20 large companies at which to work, in their “debut edition” of Metro Atlanta’s Top 100 Workplaces.
The list of nearly 500 nominated companies was whittled down to 166 back in January, and the AJC partnered with Workplace Dynamics to survey over 40,000 team members from these companies. According to the AJC, “Companies were graded (per survey responses) on several factors — the direction of the company, execution, work conditions, career paths, management, pay and benefits.”
But as the AJC notes, and we agree, there are always intangible factors that end up playing a huge role in what it means to be part of your team. Maybe it comes in the form of the amazing dedication you see from your peers, who may have different roles, but give everything they have to accomplish & exceed common goals. Or maybe it’s the passion you see in leadership teams that inspire organizations in an authentic and ethical way. Perhaps it’s the sense of family and community you have with your coworkers, who at the end of the day, are true friends.
These are just a few of the ways in which we are all inspired as team members to do everything we can to make the Emory Healthcare community experience the best it can be. The strength of the Emory Healthcare family allows us to wholeheartedly concentrate on our mission, “To serve humanity by improving health.” At Emory Healthcare, we are diverse in our backgrounds and strengths, but we all share this common goal, and we carry it out by supporting each other and supporting our patients and families.
We thank the AJC for recognizing the special family over here at Emory Healthcare. If you are part of the Emory Healthcare team and want to give a shout out to someone, or if you’re part of our community & have feedback, please don’t hesitate to comment below.
