(ATLANTA) – Alliant Health Solutions (AHS), a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality, safety, and value of health care, has been named one of the 2018 Best Places to Work by the Atlanta Business Chronicle. AHS was ranked 17th among the top large-sized companies in Atlanta.
From mid-June to late July, employees of the more than 600 nominated companies completed a confidential, online survey conducted by Quantum Workplace. The questionnaire collected information on work environment, people practices, engagement, and trust in senior leaders. The results were then tabulated to determine each company's overall score and ranking – based exclusively on the survey responses of their employees.
“We are deeply honored to be recognized as one of Atlanta’s best places to work,” said AHS President and CEO Dr. Dennis White. “It’s truly our employees who make Alliant a special place. Their dedication to supporting each other and making health care better shines through in everything we accomplish.”
Alliant’s culture of caring fosters a spirit of community that spreads beyond company walls. Employees and their families are offered frequent opportunities to serve others through charitable events and initiatives. This positive work environment is further supported through fitness and wellness programs, comprehensive benefits, and flexible work schedules.
“It’s important to our company culture to listen and understand the voice of our employees,” said Human Resources Director Margot Townsend. “We continually ask for employee feedback and have an engaged employee council. Based on the input we receive, we implement employee-focused initiatives – whether it’s a learning management system to foster career growth or a company-wide recognition tool to celebrate each other’s successes. We make every effort to provide the best workplace.”
The Best Places to Work survey is conducted and published annually by the Atlanta Business Chronicle to recognize companies focused on creating a positive, effective work environment for their employees. Atlanta’s 2018 Best Places to Work recipients were honored at an awards ceremony held at Flourish Atlanta on September 6.
