Hospital named a top company for executive women

3/15/2011 — Yale New Haven Hospital has been named to the 2011 NAFE Top 50 Companies and 10 Nonprofits for Executive Women list by the National Association for Female Executives. One of the country's largest associations for women professionals and business owners, NAFE provides resources - through education, networking and public advocacy - to empower its members to achieve both career and personal success. The list recognizes organizations whose policies and practices encourage women's advancement and whose numbers at the highest levels of leadership demonstrate that commitment.

"Yale New Haven Hospital is committed to gender equality in the workplace. It is just one of the ways Yale New Haven distinguishes itself as an employer of choice," said Marna Borgstrom, president and CEO. "We're honored to be recognized by NAFE for something that we regard as integral to who we are and what we do."

YNHH has been recognized as the employer of choice for the region, offering numerous benefits and programs to help employees meet work-life demands, such as internal advancement, tuition reimbursement, dependent tuition, employee health and wellness programs, and a unique performance incentive plan which allows employees to share in the hospital's financial success.

The hospital has found that flexible work arrangements - such as telecommuting, part-time and casual status, compressed workweeks, job sharing and an on-site daycare for hospital employees - were particularly appealing to older workers and attractive to new applicants and mothers interested in returning to the workforce. In addition, YNHH offers a home ownership program to help employees buy their first home, as well as an employee hardship fund which provides limited financial assistance to employees with immediate, severe and temporary financial hardships.

NAFE will honor the Top Companies at a gala luncheon in New York City on March 30.
