Awarded for its exceptional workplace conditions for a 3rd time

03 April 2018

HYGEIA has become the only hospital in Greece to receive an award for its positive work environment for a 3rd time, as it was ranked among the top companies listed as Best Workplaces 2018.

The survey – conducted in Greece by the Great Place to Work® Institute Hellas, with the academic assistance of the ALBA Graduate Business School at The American College of Greece – ranked HYGEIA Hospital 5th in terms of its workplace conditions in the category of companies with over 250 employees.

HYGEIA achieved this distinction following a survey that included 49 companies with a total of 22,300 salaried employees. Note that the companies are awarded mainly based on answers provided by the employees themselves.

Commenting on the survey results, the HYGEIA Group CEO, Mr Andreas Kartapanis, noted, “We are extremely proud that, despite the adverse conditions in Greek entrepreneurship, all of us at HYGEIA Group continue to improve at what we do. Strongly believing that the leader in any field must set an example, this is a great honor for us, since this 3rd successive distinction for our workplace conditions comes from the employees themselves.  Driven by our pledge to provide top-quality services, we continue to invest in new technologies and state-of-the-art equipment, while supporting the professional development of our employees and offering them a safe work environment. Our solid commitment, consistent strategy, company values and principles, and corporate social responsibility initiatives are the tools that assist us in continuing our vision to become a point of reference for quality healthcare services in Greece.”

The annual Best Workplaces survey for showcasing the companies with the best workplace conditions is conducted in Greece by the Great Place to Work® Institute Hellas. The companies are evaluated with the academic assistance of the ALBA Graduate Business School at The American College of Greece. The companies are ranked based on the answers provided by the employees in the Trust Index© questionnaire (counts for 2/3), and the answers provided in the two Culture Audit© questionnaires (counts for 1/3) by the companies’ Management, with regard to the practices and policies followed in human resource management. The results of these two tools (Trust Index© and Culture Audit©) determine the final ranking.

The survey examines and evaluates the following 5 main parameters with regard to workplace conditions, as defined by the Great Place to Work methodology:

  1. Credibility by the Management.
  2. Respect towards the employees.
  3. Sense of justice within the company.
  4. Sense of pride felt by the employees.
  5. Camaraderie among the employees.
