KINCARDINE FAMILY HEALTH TEAM CERTIFIED AS A GREAT WORKPLACE
For Release: January 3rd, 2018
Kincardine Family Health Team is proud to announce that we have been certified as a GREAT WORKPLACE after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work® Canada. This certification is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about the workplace experience.
Gerry Glover, Chief Executive Officer of the Family Health Team said ‘workplace culture is significant to job satisfaction, employee retention and morale and successful patient outcomes. The concept of workplace culture is significant in understanding the behaviour of individuals in organizations as they manage variable expectations and internal social dynamics. Culture naturally permeates when collaboration, transparency, accountability, supportive leadership and collegial rapport exists. Our Team maintains high standards of care; align programs and services with best practice guidelines and immerse themselves into the patient-centered experience, to ensure each patient is provided the best care, at the right time, by the right provider and as close to home as possible. An engaged workplace culture emerges when the wishes of a Team are listened to, understood, appreciated and acted upon. We endeavor to provide our members with a work-life balance not typically inherent in many organizations. We believe employees should look forward to coming to work; share in open dialogue; participate in constructive differences of opinion and cooperative compromise. While the nature of our work may be difficult, it is rewarding, challenging and our organizational culture shouldn’t add to the stress of the work nor adversely impact the health and wellness of our Team members. Our Team is our most valuable asset and on behalf of our Board of Directors, I could not be more proud of their proactive individual and collective contributions to advance patient-centered care initiatives to the communities we serve.
