Providence Health Care among Canada's 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures

In an era when companies are placing an increased focus on creating positive corporate culture, Providence Health Care (PHC) was recognized on Thursday, November 29, 2012 for having one of the best in Canada.  The award was presented in the National Post by Waterstone Human Capital and recognizes organizations that have a culture that helps them enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage.

The award is given to companies that innovate, build on their strengths, encourage employees to be life-long learners and strive to do what’s right.  PHC was recognized in the Broader Public Sector category.  10 organizations received the award in each of four categories, including Enterprise, Mid-Market, and Growth and Small Cap.

“This award confirms something we’ve felt for some time, though it’s important to note that a successful corporate culture requires the commitment and energy of all employees,” said Dianne Doyle, President and CEO of Providence Health Care.  “We are blessed with a tremendous staff that have embraced our mission and values and live them everyday.”
