Tampa Community Hospital Again Named One of Top Workplaces in Tampa Bay

Tampa Community Hospital was again named one of Tampa Bay’s top workplaces in 2016 by the Tampa Bay Times. This is the second year in a row that Tampa Community Hospital was recognized. Members of the hospital’s staff nominated Tampa Community Hospital and employees were surveyed about several topics, including practices and policies that make companies the top places to work.

To be considered for participation, companies or government entities had to employ at least 50 workers in Florida and be at least a year old.

The Top Workplaces 2016 in Tampa Bay program was created by the Tampa Bay Times and WorkplaceDynamics.

The companies were ranked based on leadership, compensation and training, workplace flexibility, and diversity. The rankings are published on TampaBay.com, in the April 8 edition of the Tampa Bay Times.

Kunkel-Stephanie2“The best part of working at Tampa Community Hospital is our employees. We look at our team as an extension of our family. The camaraderie and warm inviting atmosphere will continue to make Tampa Community a Top Work Place!” said Stephanie Kunkel, MBA, PHR (Professional in Human Resources), VP of Human Resources.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
