The Lehigh Valley Health Network was ranked number 36 out of 100 as one of the best places to work in the Information Technologies field in 2010 by ComputerWorld. Many statistics make up the collection of information to determine companies rankings, but what makes The Lehigh Valley Health Network stand out?
Excerpts from ComputerWorld.com:
The IT department at this health services group actually grew in size in the past 12 months, allowing the Allentown, Pa.-based company to pursue new and expanded telehealth services offered to the community and to other regional community hospitals.
The company offers merit-based pay increases, project bonuses and gift cards. Training is coordinated by an education committee whose members represent all areas within IT. This group meets monthly to develop departmentwide training programs, assess skills and development activities, and support a training request clearinghouse. The IT department provides education sessions two to four times monthly on a variety of topics.
Despite the slow economy, Lehigh Valley Health Network continues to invest in its IT department – adding staff, upgrading applications and equipment, and implementing new technology.
One of the major reasons why this environment is sought after by IT professionals is the balance of work and personal life that the company promotes. The Special Events Committee sponsors charitable and social activities that help create that sense of balance.
Community service is a big part of IT’s efforts. While all events are optional, employees are encouraged to participate in activities throughout the year, usually on company time. These initiatives include staffing the local soup kitchen for multiple shifts each month, giving Christmas trees to the local Council of Churches or donating school backpacks stuffed with school supplies to disadvantaged children in the community.
