1st Place Best Places to Work Badge

Tahoe Forest Health System is proud to be recognized as the 2019 winner of the Greater Reno-Tahoe Best Places to Work award in the Extra-Large Business category. The recognition took place at the 12th Annual Greater Reno-Tahoe Best Places to Work Celebration, presented by the Northern Nevada Human Resources Association, held on Thursday, April 25, 2019, at the Silver Legacy Resort in Reno.

“We are so honored to have won this award and were up against some very respected companies including Carson Tahoe Health, Patagonia and Charles River Laboratories,” says Alex MacLennan, Chief Human Resources Officer of Tahoe Forest Health System. Tahoe Forest Health System was one of four finalists in the Extra-Large Business Category. “Simply being a finalist was honorable, but we are so proud that our organization won this great award,” MacLennan added, who was present at the Celebration.

Best Places to Work is a contest that honors superior organizations where voices are heard, cultures are thriving and employees are engaged. It gives businesses the opportunity to learn the perception of employees about the workplace, and provides them with valuable information that can be used to improve day-to-day operations and workplace environment.

Winners are determined entirely on the basis of employees’ responses to the Employee Engagement Survey that measures key areas that make up an organization’s culture. These range from compensation and benefits to trust in leadership and employee engagement.

Tahoe Forest Health System is committed to being a value-based organization, guided in conduct by its 5 core values of quality, understanding, excellence, stewardship and teamwork. The organization is united by the importance of their work, serving the immediate and long-term health needs of their community with excellence and compassion. While united by this mission, team members are also united by their sense of community among each other, acknowledging and demonstrating teamwork and support as colleagues, as friends and as a family.
