Covenant HealthCare Featured on Forbes List of Best Mid-Size Employers
Covenant HealthCare was included in Forbes Magazine’s 2018 ranking of top midsize companies, selected from a sample of U.S. employees working for companies with at least 1,000 – 5,000 employees. Covenant ranked #1 in healthcare in Michigan, #5 in Michigan overall, and #192 nationally.
Forbes, in conjunction with Statista, created the Best Employers award to recognize companies that have made a distinct effort to create a positive and highly functional work environment.
Shirelle Carthan-Dottery, MBA, Human Resources Retention Specialist with Covenant says she’s not surprised by these findings. “Covenant leadership cares about employees and wants to engage with them. As an organization, we regularly reach out and ask our workforce for feedback, take that feedback, and look for areas of opportunities. Our teams then set out to improve where we can or educate the workforce on work that is being done. We know what drives employees, and we want them to feel their work is valued.”
As the organization continues to reach and exceed national benchmarks in areas such as employee engagement, fiscal responsibility and overall quality control, Covenant acknowledges the secret to success is a dedicated workforce.
Kevin Birchmeier, Vice President of Human Resources at Covenant states, “We thank more than 4,500 team members who keep patients at the center of everything we do through their hard work and extraordinary efforts.”
