Crothall Healthcare Joins Best Places to Work in Healthcare

On August 14, 2013, Crothall Healthcare and sister food company Morrison Healthcare were both named to Modern Healthcare’s list of the Top 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare in 2013. Morrison is listed as the only food service provider and has been named to the list for the third consecutive year. As a premium supplier of support services to healthcare facilities throughout the United States, the Crothall sector of Compass Group joins the group of 100 top employers recognized by Modern Healthcare in its national survey for the first time.

“Receiving this vote of confidence from our people is extremely humbling,” said CEO Bobby Kutteh. “I am aware every day of the caring spirit that has become a critical part of our organization and which is so important to our healthcare customers. I am grateful to every one of our people for their hard work and commitment. I believe that there is a special kind of magic created when leaders are committed to developing and nurturing their people–and then those people reciprocate.”

To earn a place on the list, each company was required to submit detailed information on its culture and employment practices—from recruiting to compensating to engaging its people—to the Best Places group. This objective third party then independently surveyed a random selection of employees on various aspects of job satisfaction.

“It’s really a commitment to our people that starts from the top down,” said Senior Vice President of Human Resources Raj Pragasam. “And I know that for many that is on a very personal level. We survey the engagement of our people on an annual basis and then form serious action plans to address our weaknesses. As a result, we have seen the creation of transparent and frequent communications, several effective and innovative development programs, mixed learning environment training programs, our GEM2 frontline associate recognition initiative, and the addition of a Human Resources Service Center. This recognition by our people reinforces the need for us to continue listening to our people and acting on their feedback.”

Modern Healthcare, one of the industry’s most trusted and credible news sources, selects from hospitals, physician practices, insurers, suppliers, and consulting groups across the country.  The magazine published its Best Places to Work in Healthcare honor roll today on its website. Read the article for more information.
