Premier recognized on Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s list of Top Workplaces for 2016

September 1, 2016 [Pittsburgh, PA] –- Premier Medical Associates has received its fourth year of recognition as a top workplace in Pittsburgh by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s list of Top Workplaces for 2016. This marks Premier Medical Associate’s fourth year of participation in the survey. Premier was previously recognized as a top work place in 2012, 2014, and 2015.

Explaining the importance of this achievement, Mark DeRubeis, CEO, said, “The rapidly changing dynamics of healthcare require a level of dedication from our employees at every level of the organization. The heavy lift we make in the form of continuous training and workflow adjustments is often transparent to the end customer – our patients. Hiring, retaining and, more importantly, empowering employees to deliver a higher standard of healthcare is one of the most vital things we do.”

Here is a select sample of anonymous quotes from employees who participated in the survey:

“It is a pleasure to work for a company that is growing in the right direction and takes care of their employees.”

“The collective attitude of PMA is that of a family. Every department will pull together (when necessary) for the greater good of PMA as a whole, especially when the outcome benefits the patients.”

The Top Workplaces list recognizes the most progressive companies in the Pittsburgh region based on employee opinions about company leadership, career opportunities, workplace flexibility, compensation and benefits. The analysis included responses from the 1,373 workplaces surveyed including employees at public, private and nonprofit organizations in the Pittsburgh area.

Premier’s continued success with this program and recognition arrives from a thriving employee culture, clearly defined goals and corporate mission, consistent leadership commitment and involvement at all levels of the organization. The survey was voluntarily completed by 271 of Premier’s employees representing 72% of the organization.

In its fifth year, the Top Workplaces program surveys the opinions of over a million employees from 4,000 organizations of varying sizes and industries. The employee surveys are conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. WorkplaceDynamics partners with 30 major publishing partners across the United States to publish 30 regional Top Workplaces lists and one national list.
