UMC ranks as the best place to work in Texas

From UMC Health System:

UMC Health System has been named the 2012 Best Place to Work in Texas among large companies, according to the Best Companies Group. UMC has ranked among the top three companies for five of the past six years. This is the first time UMC has received the No. 1 spot.

The awards were announced Tuesday evening in Austin. A complete list of winners will appear in the May issue of Texas Monthly.

"Service is our passion, and when you walk through the halls of our hospital, you will see a smile on every face," said Adrienne Cozart, UMC vice president for human resources. "The joy our employees have for working here translates into excellent service for our patients as well, which is why UMC has also been ranked among the top 10 percent in the nation for patient satisfaction by HealthGrades."

The companies were ranked by the Texas Association of Business, the Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management and Best Companies Group. There were 33 companies ranked in the large-company category, which includes businesses with 500 or more employees.

UMC Physician Network Services ranked 22nd among medium-sized companies, the third consecutive year PNS has been recognized.

"This is a tremendous honor and a testament to the culture our employees have created," said David G. Allison, UMC president and chief executive officer. "One of the ways UMC has remained financially successful is by retaining our employees and reducing turnover. Our employees want to be here, and that makes a safer environment for patients."

UMC was noted for its inclusive culture initiative, called UMC Includes Me, an end-of year-bonus program for full and part-time employees, individual employee recognitions, employee banquets and holiday celebrations and incentives for employee suggestions that improve safety and quality.
