Over the past few weeks, our CEO Scott Beck visited all of our offices for CHG's annual Road Show. During this event, we celebrated the success of the past year and all the ways we're working together to make a difference with each other and in our communities.
At the Road Show, we also celebrated four ways we're increasing our impact:
1. We're growing
. We started 2015 expecting to hire 400 people. But in response to our country's growing need for healthcare providers, we added 680 new hires to our family this year, bringing our employee count to more than 2,100 people!
2. We're doing meaningful work.
This is a key reason why many of us work here — so much that we created this purpose statement: "CHG makes a difference in the lives of those we serve — our people, our providers, our clients and our communities." Here are few of the ways we live this statement:
We helped each other. In 2015, we gifted more than 2,100 hours of PTO to our colleagues in need. And through the Employee Compassion Fund, we awarded 20 grants — totaling more than $25,000 — to help our people who fell on hard times.
We helped our providers and the patients they serve. Collectively, we put our providers in the position to positively impact the lives of more than 21 million people.
We helped our communities. We raised more than $700,000 through United Way donations in 2015. In addition, we used more than 4,000 hours of Volunteer Time Off to serve our communities.
3. We care about our people — and it shows.
In 2015, we landed on Fortune magazine's 100 Best Companies to Work For list
for the sixth year in a row! We also received more than a dozen other awards
based on our unique culture, as well as employee feedback. But we're not done. We focus on ways to improve our employee experience and culture every year!
4. We celebrate our successes
. In March, more than 450 of our top performers will head to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for this year's President's Club. The President's Club award goes to our sales-people who achieve their sales goals for the year, as well as our grand-prize Putting People First and Inspirational Leadership award winners
