(ST. JOSEPH) – Lakeland HealthCare is one of 20 national recipients of the Advisory Board Employee Engagement Initiative’s 2012 Excellence in Engagement Award. The award honors U.S. hospitals and health systems exhibiting extraordinary levels of workforce engagement. Winners were recognized at the EEI National Summit in Chicago on October 17.
Recipients of the Excellence in Engagement Award were selected from the Advisory Board’s healthcare-specific database, comprised of industry-leading hospitals and health systems throughout the nation. Winners not only demonstrated exceptional levels of engagement among employees, but they also maintained extremely low levels of disengagement. The award recognizes Lakeland HealthCare for cultivating a workforce of highly motivated, productive employees who are loyal and committed to the organization’s success.
“I continue to be amazed at the dedication and commitment of our associates here at Lakeland,” said Tracy Brown, SPHR, Director, Human Resources, Lakeland HealthCare. “Over the past year we were able to maintain strong engagement within the organization during a time of major change with the implementation of the electronic health record. We are committed to continuous improvement while not losing sight of what makes Lakeland unique: our associates.”
