Teaching Hospital Recognized Nationally for Third Consecutive Year
University of New Mexico Hospitals has again been named to Working Mother's annual list of Best Companies for Hourly Workers. The only initiative of its kind, Best Companies for Hourly Workers celebrates businesses working steadfastly to provide family-friendly benefits that promote health/wellness, education, flexibility and work-life balance.
Best Companies for Hourly Workers honorees must have a minimum of 50-percent hourly workers in order to submit data for this distinction. With nearly half the U.S. workforce -- 73 million Americans — punching in and out as hourly employees every day, organizations such as UNM Hospitals are finding a competitive edge when they support hourly workers.
"UNM Hospital is a great place to advance a career," offers Anna Bacon, a Child Life specialist with UNMH's Child Life Program. "I was nominated by my supervisor to be a part of career ladder program that taught me a tremendous amount about leadership. I've also been encouraged to take other professional development courses and have been involved in upper management discussions. It's been a great experience, and I've learned a lot about hospital administration."
UNM Hospital and 100 percent of this year's Best Companies for Hourly Workers winners offer benefits such as healthcare coverage, tuition reimbursement to workers pursuing degrees, and paid job skills training during working hours. "We're honored to again be named to the Working Mother list, because it recognizes our hourly employees as an integral part of our 24/7 workforce," says UNM Hospital CEO Steve McKernan. "Coworkers at UNM Hospitals are the greatest asset in providing our community with accessible, quality healthcare."
