FHE Health has once again earned the annual reputation as being a “Top Workplace,” in honor of its commendably high levels of employee satisfaction. This year’s prestigious award is the sixth that FHE Health has received since 2015.
The “Top Workplaces” award is affiliated with Energage’s national “Top Workplaces” campaign
and South Florida’s Sun Sentinel. It surveys companies every year to gauge employee engagement and satisfaction. It also reports how well FHE Health scored as compared to similar behavioral and mental health providers that were surveyed.
Prior to receiving the 2021 award, FHE had been given the same honor in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019, and 2020—the notable exception being 2018, when an especially bad hurricane prevented FHE’s employees from participating in the survey.
Survey Criteria That Revealed High Employee Satisfaction at FHE Health
This past year alone, more than two million employees in over 6,000 organizations (including FHE Health) participated in the national survey by Energage.
The survey asked employees to rate how much they agree or disagree with statements like the following (among others):
- At FHE Health, we do things efficiently and well
- There is good interdepartmental cooperation at FHE Health
- FHE Health enables me to work at my full potential
- My manager helps me learn and grow
When tallied, FHE’s scores added up to high employee satisfaction. How did these scores stack up next to those for “similarly sized behavioral and mental health providers”? They were significantly higher.
Employee Engagement High at FHE Health
One key finding of the survey, according to Energage, was that “78 percent of FHE Health employees are either engaged or enthusiastically engaged.” But what exactly is “engagement,” and how did Energage measure it?
In a summary of its findings, the company stated that it measures engagement as “the percentage of employees who are: highly motivated; committed to staying with your organization; willing to highly recommend your organization to others.”
Energage went on to explain that it uses these three survey statements in particular to tally what percentage of employees are engaged or very engaged:
- This company motivates me to give my very best at work
- I would highly recommend working at this company to others
- I have not considered searching for a better job in the past month
What motivates an overwhelming majority of FHE employees to be engaged or very engaged with their work? A cloud graphic in Energage’s final report of the survey findings may offer some clues. It shows the themes that came up as most important among FHE employees: “patients” was the biggest theme, followed by “patient care,” “working with patients,” and “putting patients first.” In other words, patient welfare seems to explain why so many FHE employees are engaged or very engaged in their work.
There will be a virtual award event later this month, sponsored by the Sun Sentinel.
