Ascom today announced that it has become certified as a Most Loved Workplace® backed by the research and analysis of Best Practice Institute (BPI). Most Loved Workplace® validation provides the most comprehensive look at workplace sentiment for organizations today.
“This distinction recognizes the work we’ve done to transform our culture as we move from a hardware provider to a clinical workflow technology solutions company,” said Kelly Feist, Managing Director, Ascom Americas. “We’ve evolved our culture to be open and flat where we embrace ideas from anywhere, at all levels, to grow our organization.”
Ascom has been certified as a certified Most Loved Workplace® because of its mission-driven purpose to help hospitals deliver better outcomes for patients and to help customers across industries keep their employees working smarter and safer. With a clear strategy for growth, commitment to communication by and across all levels, and a shared focus on teamwork, employees’ are able to contribute fully in the workplace.
Most Loved Workplaces® certify companies where employees are the happiest and most satisfied at work. Ascom became certified as a Most Loved Workplace based on its scores on the Love of Workplace Index™ which surveyed employees on various elements around employee satisfaction and sentiment including the level of respect, collaboration, support, and sense of belonging they feel inside the company.
"I started Most Loved Workplaces out of inspiration from my community of people who consciously place love for their employees at the center of their business model," said Louis Carter, the founder, and CEO of BPI and a social/organizational psychologist, thought leader, entrepreneur, and author. Carter's book, "In Great Company: How to Spark Peak Performance by Creating an Emotionally Connected Workplace," identifies the specific areas needed to become a highly respected, reputable organization where people love to work with each other – a Most Loved Workplace.
Backed by BPI, in its original research that created MLW criteria, Most Loved Workplaces surveyed more than 175 companies and more than 3,000 executives across the United States, the Middle East/Northern Africa, and Southeast Asia. They found that productivity rises as employee sentiment increases, with 94 percent of responders saying they did three to four times more work for a company they loved and 95 percent saying they stayed at companies they loved three to four times longer. Most Loved Workplaces certification is the most valid method to determine employee experience and recognize a great workplace.
