Ontario Hospital Association Named One of the Best Organizations to Work For

TORONTO, April 19, 2012 /CNW/ - The Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) is pleased to announce that it is being recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada for a second consecutive year. The OHA is proud to have placed eighth in the 'less than 1,000 employees' category.  The full list of organizations appeared today in a special national report in The Globe and Mail.

"The OHA prides itself on creating a trusting work environment where our employees are valued for their contributions. It is very gratifying to be named one of the Best Workplaces in Canada and know that the hard work and dedication of everyone at the OHA has been noticed," said OHA Interim President and CEO Mark Rochon.

The list of Best Workplaces in Canada is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute, Canada.  The competition process is based on a survey open to all full time employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization and an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a Great Place to Work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.  Over 230 organizations participated in this year's national competition.

About the OHA: The Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) is the voice of Ontario's public hospitals.  Founded in 1924, the OHA uses advocacy, education and partnerships to build a strong, innovative and sustainable health care system for all Ontarians.
