Tuomey Named one of Best in S.C.

December 14, 2007

Tuomey Healthcare System was recently named as one of the 2007 Best Places to Work in South Carolina. This second annual program was created by SCBIZ in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – South Carolina State Council, the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce, SCJobnetwork.com, and Best Companies Group.

The Best Places to Work in South Carolina survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the top employers in South Carolina, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses. The list is made up of 20 companies split into two groups: 12 small/medium sized companies (25-249 employees) and 8 large sized companies (more than 250 employees). Tuomey has been named one of this year’s Best Places to Work in South Carolina in the large category.

“I have always believed that Tuomey has one of the best work environments in the state, and we are all so excited about this recognition,” said Tuomey President & CEO Jay Cox.  “We have more than 1,650 employees, and we certainly would not be the hospital we are without their caring, support and dedication.”

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
* Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
* Be a publicly or privately held business;
* Have a facility in South Carolina;
* Must be in business a minimum of one year;
* Have at least 25 employees in South Carolina.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in South Carolina. The first part consisted of extensively evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in South Carolina with assistance from ModernThinkLLC, who analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
