December 23, 2016

[Richmond, VA] – Health Quality Innovators (HQI) – formerly known as VHQC – was recently named as one of the 2017 Best Places to Work in Virginia. The annual list of the Best Places to Work in Virginia was created by Virginia Business and Best Companies Group.

This statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Virginia, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses. The 2017 Best Places to Work in Virginia list is made up of 100 companies.

“We are honored to be among Virginia’s Best Places to Work again in 2017,” said Donald A. Glozer, MHA, FACHE, President & Chief Executive Officer. “This designation would not be possible without our talented team members who have dedicated their careers to improving health care across Virginia and beyond.”

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

• Be a for-profit, not-for-profit business or government entity;
• Be a publicly or privately held business;
• Have a facility in the state of Virginia;
• Have at least 15 employees working in the state of Virginia; and
• Be in business a minimum of 1 year.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Virginia. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Virginia and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.

The final rankings will be announced at an awards luncheon on February 2, 2017 at the Williamsburg Lodge in Williamsburg, VA.
