Perks and Programs
We asked WESTMED Medical Group to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.
- Service Culture Activation: WESTMED drives culture by equipping employees with the skills, tools and resources to consistently deliver service exceptionalism. Training is provided on the WESTMED Brand, The Patient Experience and Leading Responsibly.
- Leadership Academy of WESTMED University: WESTMED offers a 3-tier mentoring program (future leaders, managers, leaders), robust management training curriculum, physician and employee coaching initiatives, and on-the-job tools such as a Manager’s Business and Service Skills Training Toolkit. A new one-on-one mentoring program is being designed for rollout 4Q2016 to complement 3-tier group mentoring.
- True North: WESTMED deploys fun, interactive programs to bring our mission & vision to life. A goal is for all employees to understand who we are, our near-term priorities, and our long term goals; recognize how these contribute to WESTMED’s success – through both alignment on goals & objectives and through our behaviors; and identify how all the pieces fit together (individual site/department/role and collective strength).
- Talent Engagement: WESTMED leadership is highly accessible and champions programs to engage employees at all levels in the organization, including the ground up design and deployment of initiatives such as a Front Desk Steering Committee and the iEngage Team.
- WESTMED Awards Program: WESTMED congratulates and highlights our most outstanding employees who live and breathe our cultures of quality, efficiency and service. Our people are our most valuable strategic resource. Managers lead by example, demonstrating and role modeling appreciation and gratitude. Awards include: President's Award, Diamond Award, Star Awards, GEM Award and Profiles in Leadership Award. We are also training on Appreciation & Gratitude and have other recognition programs championed by our leadership team and activities built into customer service training based on a branded 'You Knocked My Socks Off!' best practice initiative.
- Giving Back to Our Communities: WESTMED places a significant emphasis on our culture and identity in the communities where we provide quality and efficient patient care. As part of our brand footprint, and as one of the largest employers in the Hudson Valley, WESTMED is emphasizing “giving back” via formalized corporate social responsibility programming geared towards those in need in our communities.
- Give Back Partnership: WESTMED has a give back partnership with The Cottage School, located in Pleasantville, NY. The school's mission is to meet the needs of at-risk youth and children of all ages by providing a safe haven to attend school and lead a healthy existence. Often, these children, whose families struggle with poverty, are the unfortunate product of abuse and neglect. WESTMED hosted a “Field Day” Event at The Cottage School on Saturday, September 24th. WESTMED volunteers were part of this very special day and helped bring some joy to the lives of at-risk children who could use some laughs and good times.
- Breast Cancer Awareness: WESTMED supports Breast Cancer Awareness through popular fundraisers, such as bake sales, and community walk events, enabling many of our physicians and staff to participate.
- Service Opportunities: We encourage employees to get involved and donate time to worthy causes, where they can find opportunities to give back on their own time. We share on a quarterly basis, individual opportunities which any member of WESTMED may participate in. We also participate in the “Big Brother” / “Big Sister” program through the Family Service of Westchester.
- Employee Summer WESTMED Softball & Pep Rally: In conjunction with the 2016 White Plains Corporate Softball League, WESTMED has multiple softball teams, including the defending league champion WESTMED Wombats. A Pep Rally was held with food and drinks for employees in a picnic area by the ball park before the championship game. This was followed by the Championship Cup Ceremony and presentation to the winning WESTMED team.
