I’m Doug Hawthorne, CEO of Texas Health Resources, with “The Business of Health Care Report.”
As we celebrate Thanksgiving, I want to give special thanks to the people of Texas Health Resources for making our organization one of the Best Places to Work in 2012, according to the Dallas Business Journal.
Being recognized as a Best Place to Work tells us that our employees are highly-engaged. Employment engagement is critical to the success of every business. It impacts customer satisfaction as well as the quality of the products and services a company provides.
Creating a positive work environment is a critical factor in employee engagement and the overall well-being of people in our organization. As one of the largest employers in North Texas, we have learned that employee recognition and a simple “thank you” can have a very positive impact on enhancing employee engagement and satisfaction.
We strive to make “thanks-giving” a part of every day by recognizing the good work that our employees and co-workers do. Texas Health is proud of our recognition program through which employees at every level can honor their co-workers with items ranging from digital singing cards to special reward certificates.
Expressing and giving thanks is one way we demonstrate our pledge of “Healing hands, caring hearts” every day of the year.
For our faith-based health system — Texas Health Presbyterian, Texas Health Harris Methodist and Texas Health Arlington Memorial — I’m Doug Hawthorne.
