The adage "Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life" may well be true at Quantum Health. The company, after all, was recently recognized both locally and nationally as of one of America's best places to work by two different publications.
In the 2010 Great Place to Work® Rankings of the Best Small & Medium Workplaces presented by Entrepreneur® magazine, Quantum Health ranked 23rd among the "50 Best" companies nationally. Columbus's Business First also highlighted the company as a 2010 "Best Places To Work" in its small companies category. Quantum Health is a four-time recipient of this award and earned second place honors in this year's competition—one spot higher than its third place finish in 2009.
"Quantum Health's success in delivering value to its clients rests solely on recruiting, hiring and retaining the area's best employees," said Kara Trott, CEO. "We're thrilled to be recognized as a great place to work by our employees and believe that it translates into great service to the people we serve every day."
The Entrepreneur "50 Best" are selected and ranked by Great Place to Work® Institute, Inc. a workplace research and consulting firm. The determination of the best 50 companies is guided by a methodology that places the greatest weight on their responses to the survey, which accounts for two-thirds of the total score. The remaining one-third of the score comes from the Institute's evaluation of each company's culture. Companies are scored in five distinct areas: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
Columbus Business First's 2010 "Best Places To Work" honorees were chosen using an independent firm's proprietary employee survey methodology and software to evaluate nominees. Companies were judged solely upon quantitative measurement of employee input.
