2010 Working Mother Award
University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics has been ranked one of the nation's top ten companies for working mothers by Working Mother magazine.
The publication, which has two million readers and is the only magazine of its kind to focus on working parents, honored the hospital for its family-friendly programs such as: flexibility on work schedules and time off, opportunities for growth and development, its wellness program, and benefits for part-time workers.
This is the fourth consecutive year the hospital has been named as one of the "100 Best Companies" to work for and earlier this year, was recognized by Working Mother magazine as one of the six "Best Companies" for Hourly Workers.
UW Hospital and Clinics Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Janice Bultema, says programs like the ones Hannet has taken advantage of - BackUp Care and Wellness Options at Work - have made it easier to retain good employees and fill vacant positions.
"It's an honor to work with dedicated staff who take pride in working for UW Hospital and Clinics while giving full devotion to their families," she says. "They truly care about what they do and understand that their hard work and interpersonal connection to each other and to the patients is what makes us one of the best at providing excellent, quality health care."
