Virtua once again honored as a best place to work
Virtua, South Jersey's largest healthcare provider, has once again been honored by the Philadelphia Business Journal as a Best Place to Work in the Delaware Valley in the 1,000-plus employee category. Virtua has received this honor for seven consecutive years and has secured its place in the Hall of Fame for the last five years.
Evaluated by its employees, Virtua ranked above hundreds of other prestigious organizations based on the strengths of its benefits and programs. The award highlights Virtua's achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of working conditions and company culture.
“Virtua’s first priority has always been to create an environment where employees can thrive and be motivated to deliver an outstanding customer experience to the people we serve,” says Richard P. Miller, Virtua President & CEO. “An important focus is our dedication to hire, develop and retain the best people to ensure this outcome.”
This latest recognition continues to affirm the organization's commitment to its employees. Virtua has also previously won top honors from the Philadelphia Business Journal
and from NJ Biz
for its focus on employee wellness programs.
"We promote a culture of wellness at Virtua with the mission of helping people be well, get well and stay well,” explained Mr. Miller.
Hall of Fame winners are companies that have placed at the top of their size category in two or more years, according to the Business Journal
. To find the region's top employers, the Philadelphia Business Journal
asked readers to nominate their own companies. Employees then rated employers based on trust, job satisfaction, benefits, communication and engagement.
