The Business Courier has named the finalists for its 2020 Best Places to Work awards. The program recognizes companies and organizations in Greater Cincinnati that are setting the bar for how to keep employees happy and engaged. For the fourth year in a row, the Health Carousel Cincinnati offices have been named as a Cincinnati Business Courier Best Places to Work Finalist!
For the 5th year, Health Carousel partnered with Quantum Workplace to invite its employees to take an Annual Engagement Survey. The results from employees in each individual city were applied to the Best Places to Work Competition in that region. 2020 has been a year full of challenges and unforeseen problems, which is why honors that come directly from employees mean so much.
Thank you especially to all of our employees across all cities who took the time to provide your valuable and honest input. You are the core of Health Carousel’s DNA. Your feedback is critical to drive change in our areas of improvement and help us build on our collective strengths to make Health Carousel a great place to work for all.
We asked a few of our employees to share what this recognition really means to them and why it’s not just an award.
What Makes Us a Best Place to Work?
At Health Carousel, it begins with the value we place on each and every employee. We value our employees as our number one asset and we support them as individuals so they can achieve more, live more, earn more, and learn more. Our Well-Being Program, with four pillars (Professional, Physical, Financial, Social), engages our employees and gives them all the resources to achieve their personal and professional best. To ensure employees are driving our culture and initiatives, we have implemented ongoing pulse surveys to learn more about what is most important to them, and have worked to increase two-way communication about change, improvements, and involvement.
But it doesn’t stop there. Health Carousel provides a wide range of exceptional benefit programs to deliver an exceptional employee experience.
Beyond platinum level health benefits, examples of unique perks range from community service outings and social events such as regular happy hour gatherings and our Health Carousel Summer Office Olympics. We offer tickets for local arts and sporting events like FC Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Reds. We offer a state-of-the-art learning management system (Health Carousel University (HCU)), which contains multi-genre training and development courses for all employees, and a performance management system, GPS (Grow. Perform. Succeed.), which empowers our employees to achieve their personal and professional best by providing transparent coaching and feedback needed to achieve their goals. Finally, Health Carousel also offers a Financial Planning tool, Momentum on Up, to help our employees improve their financial literacy and make the most of their financial resources.
We are thrilled to be named a finalist in the 2020 Best Places to Work awards, and we remain committed to continuous improvement in our culture, employee experience, and the personal and professional development of each and every person that chooses to make Health Carousel the workplace they call home.
