Nevada Business Magazine has recognized UMC as one of the 10 “Best Companies to Work For” in 2018, highlighting the hospital’s continued efforts to promote satisfaction, loyalty and career advancement among its 4,001 employees in Southern Nevada.
After receiving hundreds of in-depth nominations, the magazine’s editorial staff selected only 10 honorees to be featured in the November issue of Nevada Business Magazine.
“Nevada Business Magazine is pleased to recognize organizations such as UMC in our ‘Best Companies to Work For’ cover article,” said Tarah Richardson, editor-in-chief of Nevada Business Magazine. “UMC earned a spot for the organization’s dedication to employees and long history of caring for their well-being. ‘Best Companies to Work For’ is a semi-annual feature in Nevada Business Magazine that recognizes companies that go above and beyond for employees, and UMC is one of those companies.”
The average UMC employee has worked at the hospital for 10 years, underscoring the remarkable loyalty of the team tasked with delivering Nevada’s highest level of care.
UMC provides its team members with continuing education opportunities and a wide range of community service opportunities. The hospital also offers a tuition reimbursement program to help team members reach their academic and career goals. Committed to promoting employees from within, UMC also offers leadership “boot camp” training sessions for up-and-coming leaders throughout the hospital.
As an organization committed to promoting health and well-being, UMC offers a number of wellness programs for employees, including classes, support groups, counseling and many other benefits – all at no cost.
UMC Administrators frequently meet with hospital employees at all levels to solicit feedback and promote the free exchange of ideas to help shape the future of UMC. UMC CEO Mason VanHouweling hosts frequent town hall meetings with employees, encouraging them to share concerns, ideas and other feedback on a wide range of issues. The feedback gathered during these meetings often plays a key role in UMC’s strategic planning process.
The hospital also recently introduced a shared governance program for nurses, providing these team members with valuable opportunities to contribute their ideas and expertise while further elevating UMC’s position as a trusted leader in nursing care.
In addition, UMC has an entire team of employees dedicated to boosting morale. Known as TeamUMC, this group organizes events for employees throughout the year, including holiday treat carts, employee karaoke, dunk tank events, holiday parties and spring picnics – all of which make UMC not just a place to work, but a second home for team members.
“We are committed to taking care of the UMC team members who have dedicated their careers to caring for others,” said VanHouweling. “In addition to offering a culture focused on teamwork and opportunities for career advancement, we provide employees with the unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others every single day.”
