Hospital group with site in Coventry is among best workplaces in the country according to staff survey

Coventry Editorial 26th Nov, 2023   0

A HOSPITAL group with a site in Coventry has been crowned one of the ‘best places to work’ in the country, according to a UK wide employee survey.

Circle Health Group, who operate The Meriden Hospital in Coventry, ranked fourth across the top firms with over 2,000 employees, in the survey carried out by Best Companies.

The Independent organisation evaluates employers across three categories; engagement, leadership and workplace culture.

Launched in 2001, the survey is recognised as the gold-standard accreditation for small, medium and large businesses across the UK. It is the only survey of its kind to accurately measure staff engagement levels.

The survey generates a score on a fixed scale of 0 to 1,000, allowing the organisation to be ranked.

The results are based on employees’ experiences and is compiled voluntarily through anonymous feedback on the leadership, culture and support available to them.

The results revealed that employees felt supported by the hospital’s senior management team and had extensive opportunities available to them for continued professional and personal development.

Crucially, staff felt that they were listened to and were included in helping to shape the culture and direction of the business.

This comes off the back of a string of ‘good’ ratings from the hospital regulator for the quality and safety of care, as well as best in class patient outcomes at each hospital.

David Cooper, chief people officer of Circle Health Group, said: “Our people are at the heart of what makes Circle Health Group.

“To be ranked as one of the Top 5 Best Companies to Work For in the UK, as well as placing second in the Health and Social Care category is an outstanding achievement. I couldn’t be prouder of our people and culture.”
