SUMMIT, NJ – Atlantic Health System (AHS), parent company of Overlook Medical Center and one of the largest health care organizations in New Jersey, has been named by Great Place to Work® and Fortune as one of the 100 Best Workplaces For Millennials in the country.

The company, which also operates Morristown, Newton, and Chilton Medical Centers, as well as Goryeb Children’s Hospital and Atlantic Rehabilitation, was ranked 16th on the list, making it the highest-ranked New Jersey-based company on the list, the highest-ranked health care organization on the list, and the only NJ-based hospital system on the list.
 
“Unlike generations before them, millennials seek a more mobile, immediate and personalized experience when it comes to their health care,” said Atlantic Health System President and CEO Brian Gragnolati. “We believe they will be vital to helping Atlantic Health System redefine access to health care for everyone we serve.”

In just 10 years, millennials will make up 75 percent of the workforce. To compete for top talent and ensure their long-term success, businesses must prepare to appeal to and engage this unique generation of employees. At AHS, millennials already comprise more than 4,300 of the organization’s more than 14,000 employees.

Atlantic Health System and the 99 other winning companies were selected based on the evaluations of nearly 90,000 millennial-aged employees who were surveyed using the Trust Index©, Great Place to Work’s employee assessment survey. The 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials is part of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune based entirely on employee surveys from published Great Place to Work® Reviews.

“Companies focused on solid growth understand that it’s critical for senior leaders to have an in-depth understanding of all their employees’ experiences, regardless of their age, role in the organization, or any other demographic profile,” says Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work® United States. “Great workplaces are constantly monitoring and analyzing their employees’ workplace experiences and then taking action to improve them. Ranking on this list is a great indicator that these companies’ efforts to create great workplaces are resonating with millennials.”
 
Atlantic Health System has been recognized seven consecutive times by Fortunein its annual “100 Best Companies to Work For®” list. That recognition has been driven, in part, by the numerous programs put into place to develop and enhance their professional skills and careers as well as their personal lives and well-being.



“An important part of recruiting top talent is to create a positive workplace environment that complements the many age groups which comprise our workforce,” said Andrew Kovach, Vice President, Human Resources and Chief Administrative Officer, Atlantic Health System. “For millennials, we have worked to develop a workplace that acknowledges their strengths, while also providing opportunities to advance in their careers at Atlantic Health System.”

Among the professional development programs, AHS offers both a mentorship program as well as a nursing externship program, in which younger employees are able to learn directly from more seasoned co-workers.

Atlantic Health System also offers tuition reimbursement and education assistance that helps cover the cost of higher education and the organization has forged affiliations with local colleges and universities to provide discounts to employees and to hold courses on-site at our AHS facilities.

Programs geared to employee’s well-being include day care and maternity benefits, as well as adoption assistance. Atlantic Health System also offers discounts to fitness centers throughout New Jersey and on other health and fitness products.
