South Weymouth, MA — May 22, 2012 — South Shore Hospital has been recognized as a National TopWorkplace by WorkplaceDynamics. The only hospital in our region to receive this distinction, South Shore Hospital was honored based on a survey about our workplace completed by our employees. Nationally, 805 companies with 1,000+ employees were surveyed, across the 30 regional Top Workplaces programs—including The Boston Globe “Top Places toWork.” Survey responses were from more than half a million employees. According to WorkplaceDynamics, experts in organizational health, the vote of confidence that comes from the recognition is a powerful indicator to customers and the community that an organization has strong values and employee satisfaction. One South Shore Hospital employee commented, “The work I do here is meaningful. I have input in what I work on and feel very comfortable going to my direct manager if I have any concerns. Opinions, suggestions and solutions are always welcomed.” The full list with aggregated results from across 30 TopWorkplaces in the nation can be found at www.topworkplaces.com/frontend.php/national/standard
