South Shore Hospital Named to Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work list for Third Consecutive Year
South Weymouth, MA — November 27, 2012 — South Shore Hospital is pleased to announce that it has once again been named to the Boston Globe's Top Places to Work list for the third consecutive year.
The designation as a Top Place to Work is based on the feedback from a random selection of employees throughout the organization who responded to an anonymous survey administered by WorkPlace Dynamics of Exton, Pa. Employees were asked to give their opinions about leadership, compensation, training, diversity/inclusion, career development, family-friendly flexibility, values and ethics.
Each employer was measured according to six factors:
Direction: Do employees have confidence in the leader of the organization? Do they believe it operates ethically, and is moving in the right direction?
Execution: Do employees believe senior managers have a good understanding of what the company needs to do to succeed, and are they sharing information well?
Managers: Do managers listen to employees and help employees to do their job, to learn and to grow?
Career: Does the company offer formal training and other opportunities to learn and grow, and does it reward good performance?
Conditions: Is the work environment free from hostility, and does the company help workers to balance career and family life? Does the company show its appreciation for employees?
Pay and benefits: Are workers fairly compensated?
