2013 Gallup Great Workplace Award

OMAHA, Neb. –
Alegent Creighton Health is proud to announce that it has been named a recipient of the 2013 Gallup Great Workplace Award. The only Nebraska-based company to make the list, it is the second consecutive year the organization has received the worldwide honor.

The Gallup Great Workplace Award is based on the most rigorous workplace research ever conducted. A panel of workplace experts evaluated the 32 award-winning organizations. Alegent Creighton Health is among the winners because its results demonstrated one of the most productive and engaged workforces in the world.

"Alegent Creighton Health has achieved great workplace status because it has recognized, and acted on, the important connection between engaged employees and patient care,” said Dr. James Harter, chief scientist for Gallup. “The result is a culture that improves employee and patient lives simultaneously."

Richard A. Hachten II, president and chief executive officer of Alegent Creighton Health agreed, saying that “we know that an engaged workforce - our employees who are caring for patients every hour of every day - create the experiences for every patient that deliver high-quality patient care across our entire organization."

Gallup will present the awards at their upcoming Gallup Great Workplace Summit in May.
