OakView Health Center Named Great Place to Work

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Aug. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OakView Health Center in Thousand Oaks, California, has been certified as a top workplace by the independent research and consulting firm Great Place to Work®.

Great Place to Work is a global authority on high-performance workplace cultures and provides the benchmarks, framework and expertise needed to create, sustain and recognize outstanding workplace environments. Great Place to Work produces the annual “100 Best Companies to Work For” list for Fortune magazine, as well as lists identifying the best workplaces for millennials, women and diversity.

The certification process for OakView included a survey of all employees – which included all departments, job functions and levels of experience. The survey was conducted in April and measured more than 60 categories to evaluate employee satisfaction including respect, fairness, employee pride in the community, camaraderie and belief that their work makes a difference. OakView had to meet the threshold in each category in order to be certified.

“This honor belongs to every employee at OakView,” said Jeannette Ruggiero, administrator for OakView Health Center.  “The staff work tirelessly, 24 hours a day, to make a positive environment for our residents as well as for each other in line with our core STAR values. In addition to recognizing the outstanding job the employees do on a round-the-clock basis, OakView provides opportunities for staff members to advance their careers as part of the OakView team. The Great Place to Work certification validates our efforts to create a work culture that recognizes the individual contributions of each employee while also offering a pathway for long-term career growth.”

The OakView STAR program stands for Service to Residents and Colleagues, Team Success, Aim for Excellence and Do the Right Thing. Employees are nominated for the STAR award by residents and their peers at the community. A committee then votes to determine the employee of each quarter and ultimately decides upon the “STAR of the Year” for the community. The quarterly employees and the STAR of the Year each receive awards funded by OakView management.
