Gallup Great Workplace Award – 12 Years in a Row

Hendrick Medical Center has received the Gallup Great Workplace Award for the 12th consecutive year, earning the distinction with only two other companies worldwide. Hendrick Medical Center, ABC Supply Co. and Winegardner & Hammons Hotel Group have been recognized each year since the award was first introduced in 2006. Thirty-nine leading organizations were included on this year’s list, with Hendrick as one of nine healthcare industry leaders.

The Great Workplace Award was created to recognize organizations for their extraordinary ability to create engaged workplace cultures that drive business outcomes. Gallup analytics reveal that only 15 percent of worldwide workers “came to work today engaged and ready to maximize their performance.” And yet, a few exceptional organizations have more than 70 percent of their workers ready to outperform their competition.

Hendrick Medical Center joins a prestigious group of organizations that average a ratio of 14 engaged employees to one actively disengaged employee, which is more than seven times what Gallup found in nationally representative polling. This ratio is also more than 21 times what Gallup found in nationally representative polling in 142 countries worldwide.

According to Gallup, all of the award recipients have shown measurable business impact as a result of having a more engaged workforce. They have achieved this by integrating engagement into four areas that Gallup has identified as vital to cultivating a workplace culture of engagement:

  • strategy and leadership
  • accountability and performance
  • communication and knowledge management
  • development and ongoing learning

The 39 award winners represent a wide range of industries and countries, and set a high standard for what the world's employers can achieve.
