Northwell Health is proud to announce that, for the third year in a row, we have been named one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For®. As the only health care organization recognized in New York State, our dedication to making Northwell a great place to work is evident in everything we do, and our commitment to our employees has earned us a ranking again on this distinguished annual list for 2022.
At Northwell, we’re dedicated to helping our people build careers that are meaningful and rewarding from day one. Following is just a sample of why our employees love to be part of the Northwell team!
Focusing on Employee Well-being
There’s no doubt about it: The pandemic brought enormous difficulties to all of us on several levels, whether emotional, financial, or physical. We put the well-being of our employees first with new offerings that meet people where they are, support them, and foster trust across the organization.
Northwell responded in several ways to support the emotional well-being of our team members from our Center for Traumatic Stress, Resilience, and Recovery to Team Lavender to our 24/7 Emotional Support Resource Call Center. These comprehensive support resources and networks provide employees with psychological and emotional assistance for those who need help navigating any emotional challenges.
To support our team members’ physical well-being during and after the pandemic, we expanded our wellness workshops, and shared healthy eating habits–even a healthy recipe cookbook series. We also offer apps like myWellness, which lets employees participate in step challenges and track healthy habits, rewarding them with points based on participation that they can redeem for gifts of their choice.
Northwell helps support our employees’ financial well-being by providing resources from housing benefits to subsidized in-person childcare to healthcare wellness credits and comprehensive paid time off and more.
Creating a Welcoming Workplace for All
At Northwell, equity, diversity and inclusion aren’t just buzzwords. We are dedicated to creating programs that bring those concepts to life, employing a workforce that is diverse in culture, background, and experience while celebrating the uniqueness of every individual. Our Business Employees Resource Groups, or BERGs, cover a broad array of areas, enabling employees to connect, develop new skills, and mentor others while contributing to initiatives that impact our communities in powerful ways. For example, our Bridges BERGs enable employees to explore and celebrate Asian, Black, Jewish, and LatinX communities, while other groups focus on health equity awareness for the LBGTQIA+ community, environmental sustainability, veterans, and more.
Other equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives include the Inclusion Academy, designed to provide coordinators, front-line managers, and directors with the tools necessary to implement and manage diversity and inclusion strategies at their local sites. We also hold organization-wide town halls and listening sessions, where we engage with team members to learn more about their experiences so we can increase our action on these critical issues; and a course on unconscious bias training, which provides an overview on how experiences and identities shape biases, among other educational programs.
Northwell Celebrates You!
During 2021, in this transformational year of healing and growth, we introduced Northwell Celebrates, a multi-faceted campaign designed to enhance skills, insight, and resources that promote our employees’ welfare while recognizing and thanking them for their heroic efforts during the pandemic.
Northwell Celebrates included holding uplifting events such as live music and drive-in movies for employees and their families, meal kits sent to employees’ homes, recognition raffles, plus gratitude pop ups and mobile spas at Northwell locations, among many others.
A Culture of Care and Compassion
As you can see, Northwell provides team members with the inspiration, resources, and opportunity to not only succeed but to thrive, no matter what role. We value the contributions of each employee and work hard every day to create a sense of community filled with compassion, camaraderie, and opportunity.
Our focus on supporting and celebrating our people is the heart of our culture—and it’s what makes Northwell a great place work for all.
