Hat trick! JGH among Montreal’s top employers
For the third year in a row, the JGH has been named one of the best places to work in Montreal. This is indicative of the hospital’s determination to keep improving the patient experience by providing staff with a pleasing work environment.
Judges in the Mediacorps competition, which is known as Montreal’s Top Employers, cited a number of reasons for the honour, including the hospital’s generous vacation policy, support for training, flexibility in balancing on-the-job responsibilities with personal needs, retirment planning assistance, and support during maternal and paternity leaves.
The rigourous applicatio process covers more than 100 points of comparison among institutions, which are examined by a panel of human-resource academics. Under particular scrutiny are the institutions’ physical environment, work atmosphere and communications, health benefits, financial benefits and compensation, family-friendly policies, programs for experienced workers, employee engagement, training and development, vacation policy and paid days-off, and community involvement.
In a statement, the JGH said it is “committed to developing and promoting an environment for leadership and excellence in health-sciences education and it recognizes that the talent and commitment of its staff contribute to its strength.
“The hospital continues to foster a work environment where each person is valued, respected and supported, and it continues to support professional endeavours and educational programs that contribute to the growth and development of its staff.”
