HQI Among Virginia’s Best Places to Work for 2018

December 17, 2018

Health Quality Innovators (HQI) was recently named as one of the 2019 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. HQI, a nonprofit health care consulting organization, serves as the Medicare Quality Improvement Organization for Virginia and Maryland and a Practice Transformation Network for several states.

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 2019 Best Places to Work in Virginia list is made up of 100 companies.

“We are delighted to be selected as one of Virginia’s Best Places to Work for the fifth year,” said Donald A. Glozer, MHA, FACHE, President & Chief Executive Officer. “This achievement – and our reputation as a leader in health quality improvement – is a direct result of the expertise and commitment of our team members.”

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

  1. Be a for-profit, not-for-profit business or government entity;
  2. Be a publicly or privately held business;
  3. Have a facility in the state of Virginia;
  4. Have at least 15 employees working in the state of Virginia; and
  5. Be in business a minimum of one 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 Feb. 1, 2019, at the Boar’s Head Inn in Charlottesville. For more information on the Best Places to Work in Virginia program, visit www.BestPlacesToWorkVA.com.
