The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.” Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, Houston’s premier multispecialty group practice, was established in 1949 by Mavis Kelsey, M.D. Dr. Kelsey was a medical pioneer who believed that when physicians work together to coordinate care, that this novel workplace environment could help improve patient care, and satisfaction. “Recognition as a 2018 Top Workplace validates that while our values have not changed, we have been able to exceed the expectations of a changing workforce landscape,” said Tony Lin, M.D., chairman of Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. “While “corporate culture” may not have been part of the established lexicon 69 years ago, Kelsey-Seybold’s culture of caring has prevailed, to the benefit of our employees and patients.” “Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”About Energage, LLC Headquartered in Exton, Pa., Energage (formerly known as WorkplaceDynamics) is a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools that help leaders to unlock potential, inspire performance, and achieve amazing results within their organizations.
