Hendrick named one of the most engaged workplace cultures in the world

Hendrick Health has earned the 2022 Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award (GEWA) for the 16th consecutive year, making the organization one of only two companies worldwide to accomplish this feat. After another year of unpredictability in the workplace, Gallup found that Hendrick Health continued to engage and develop its people amid the disruption, making it one of the most engaged workplace cultures in the world.

“The dedication of each Hendrick employee to serve our community and support our mission, has made it possible for our organization to be continually recognized with this distinct honor,” said Brad Holland, president and CEO for Hendrick Health. “Hendrick is one of only two organizations in the world, and the only healthcare organization, to receive this award every year since it was first given in 2007. As we commit to serve with excellence and compassion, we impact the engagement level of this organization - both within our teams and within our communities.”

The 41 GEWA winners’ ratio of engaged employees to actively disengaged employees is 13 times higher than the global average. Worldwide, only 20% of employees are engaged — that is, committed to their work and connected to their workplace — and just 34% of employees in the U.S. workforce are engaged. Seventy percent of employees at winning GEWA organizations are engaged.

“Gallup’s 2022 GEWA winners have steered their organizations through another unprecedented and challenging year,” said Jim Harter, Gallup’s chief scientist of workplace management and wellbeing. “They didn’t slow down or hit ‘pause’ during times of uncertainty. They stayed true to their organizational values. Gallup commends all of the 2022 GEWA winners for their resiliency, determination and commitment to making their people a priority.”

Gallup’s meta-analysis on team engagement and performance is the most comprehensive workplace study ever conducted, with data on more than 2 million employees in 276 organizations across 54 industries and 96 countries. Highly engaged organizations significantly outperform their peers in important business outcomes, including customer ratings, profitability, productivity, turnover, safety incidents, shrinkage, absenteeism, quality, wellbeing and organizational citizenship.
