Perks and Programs

We asked Atlantic Health System to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Talent Advisor: Atlantic Health System’s enhanced tuition reimbursement program not only covers the cost of higher education up to $5,000 annually, but now offers EdAssist™ Educational and College Finance Advising for all employees. The program provides personalized support through free one-on-one consultation to help employees make informed decisions to select the institution and program that will best suit them and their career. Through EdAssist, Atlantic Health System also offers a free online fair where employees can learn about school program offerings, expanded tuition discounts and receive virtual advice from live EdAssist advisors.
  • Employee Wellness: While Atlantic Health System already is making a difference for patients and their families, an enhanced Employee Wellness program provides employees with the tools they need to live well and be well. The organization partners with Bravo Wellness, a new initiative that combines screening, prevention and coaching along with personal responsibility for choosing to live a healthier lifestyle. Through the voluntary program, Atlantic Health System waives a $500 medical plan increase for employees who participate in a health screening with their primary care physician. The goal is for employees to either begin or continue this relationship that is critical for long-term health and wellness. Employees discuss their screening results with their physician and then take advantage of free programs to help achieve their goals.
  • Mentorship Program: Atlantic Health System has expanded its mentorship program to create opportunities for collaboration, goal achievement, problem-solving and relationship building among all staff, regardless of where they are in their careers. Seasoned employees volunteer to become mentors to share their expertise and experience with aspiring leaders at Atlantic Health System. Both veteran and new employees share in the professional and personal growth afforded by this unique relationship. Our organization is strengthened by the skills, knowledge and institutional memory of this collaborative effort. This program was highlighted at the 2014 Great Place to Work Conference in New Orleans.
  • Healing Culture: At Atlantic Health System, a healing culture is critical to the well-being of our patients, their families and to our employees. Several programs contribute to this culture, but one most popular among staff is “Soothing Paws.” Pet therapy is a proven stress reduction tool; even a brief interaction with a dog can go a long way during a “Ruff” day at work. Atlantic Health System has expanded the pet therapy program for employees at each medical center and also made it available within the administrative offices. Other programs that contribute to the healing culture include Healing Arts, which features an artist-in-residence program and an Employee Art Show.
  • Perks and Play: Health care is a serious business, but Atlantic Health System employees also need to let loose and have fun together. Throughout the year, they enjoy employee picnics (complete with a traditional chicken toss), free lunch for every birthday, holiday meals for those working on Thanksgiving and Christmas and a complimentary holiday buffet in December to thank everyone for their efforts throughout the year. The organization and its partners also offer employees discounts to local and national retailers, restaurants, amusement parks, concerts and sporting events.

How to Get Hired

We asked Atlantic Health System for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

Atlantic Health System is committed to recruiting, hiring and retaining quality personnel . We search for candidates who are the “best fit” for Atlantic Health System and who best meets the department needs. AHS has Behavioral Based interviewing questions and tools that provide recruitment and the Hiring Managers with the ability to best assess the key characteristics within job- related behavioral competencies. These Behavioral Based interviewing questions encourage candidates to provide examples of specific scenarios /experiences they have encountered within their career and how they handle the situation and what the outcomes were. All questions are linked to the AHS PRIDE shared values/ competencies (P- professionalism, R- respect, I- involvement, D- dignity and E- excellence) that all employees are evaluated on during their annual performance appraisals.  

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Some of these opportunities are to participate in the community outreach programs that AHS offers throughout the year; college job fairs, High School and Technical School job fairs, conventions, etc. We host open houses and open interview days where HR and department representatives are available to speak with potential candidates. This is a great opportunity for prospective employees to meet recruitment staff and front line mangers. Prospective employees have the opportunity to participate in Resume Clinics; where AHS and other hospitals participate in reviewing resumes with prospective candidates making recommendations if appropriate.  Prospective employees should research any Internship, Per diem employment opportunities, Shadow programs offered throughout the year. These opportunities are offered to different levels such as High School Shadow programs, summer internship programs for student nurses and even Per Diem employment opportunities while they are in school or for those who wish to see if AHS is the right fit

Are there any unusual or especially rigorous steps of your hiring process that candidates should be aware of?

Atlantic Health System utilizes a talent assessment software to predict candidates success based on past job performance from managers, co-works and direct reports.  This tool reduces employee turnover, and increases recruitment efficiencies resulting in customer satisfaction This is a confidential process;  candidates are asked for 4-5 references and questions are competency and behavioral based.  Managers utilize the tool to further assess candidate eligibility resulting in quality hires.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

Each year HR conducts a rigorous analysis of the workforce to assess current staffing efforts and forecast future staffing demands. In anticipation of growth and future staffing needs Recruitments efforts will concentrate on specialty nurses such as, ED, OR, NICU, Case Management, Critical Care, etc.   As a result of these findings, Atlantic Health System has taken a proactive approach to strategize various recruitment initiatives. 

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

External candidates have the option to view a calendar of Open House and Recruitment events and stay connected with career news from AHS. An interactive Google map also allows candidates to search open positions in their preferred locations.  Interested candidates are welcomed to search our AHS new career web site to explore endless employment opportunities.
