Hallmark Health System recognized as a National Top Workplace

Oct. 2, 2012 – Hallmark Health System, which includes Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford and Melrose-Wakefield Hospital, has been recognized as a National Top Workplace. The list of National Top Workplaces aggregates results from across 30 Top Workplaces publishing partners to identify the best employers in the nation.

 

The list of National Top Workplaces is based solely on employee feedback from 805 companies surveyed with 1,000-plus employees across the 30 regional Top Workplaces programs. This included survey responses from more than 500,000 employees. Hallmark Health System is the only healthcare system in the region to be recognized.

 

The list is published by Workplace Dynamics of Exton, PA. Workplace Dynamics are experts in organizational health and conduct more than 4,000 company surveys each year. This research suggests that Top Workplaces are outperforming their peers financially.

 

“Put simply, the most successful companies appear to be the ones that employees believe in,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Workplace Dynamics.

 

 

In addition to this recent recognition, Hallmark Health System has been named to the Boston Business Journal’s Top Places to Work list for nine years in a row as well as the Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work list for the past the past three years.
