ASHP (American Society of Health-System Pharmacists) has been selected as one of The Washington Post’s Top Workplaces for 2016.
The Washington Post’s Top Workplaces list spotlights private, public, nonprofit, and government agencies in the greater metropolitan Washington, D.C., area with the highest ratings from their employees. Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback to a survey conducted by Workplace Dynamics, a research firm specializing in organizational health and employee engagement. To be eligible for the award, at least 70 percent of an organization’s employees must respond to the survey. More than 90 percent of ASHP employees responded.
“I would like to thank our entire team of over 200 dedicated individuals for making ASHP the absolute best place to work, and for creating a work environment that fosters innovation, creativity, and engagement,” said ASHP CEO Paul W. Abramowitz, Pharm.D., Sc.D. (Hon.), FASHP. “ASHP is truly a special place, and it is our exceptional team that makes it all happen on behalf of our members and the patients they serve.”
ASHP has more than 43,000 members and holds the largest educational conference of pharmacists in the world — the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting, which hosts over 20,000 pharmacists each year. ASHP serves as the accrediting body for pharmacy residency programs, is the only nonprofit publisher of evidence-based drug information in the United States, and publishes practice standards and numerous other publications aimed at improving patient care and advancing pharmacy practice.
Rewards and employment perks at ASHP include generous health and retirement benefits, paid parental leave, annual success-sharing bonuses, flexible work schedules, wellness programs, Capital Bikeshare membership, tuition reimbursement, and regular social events.
The companies selected as Top Workplaces will be honored at a celebration on Thursday, June 16, at The Washington Post. In addition, ASHP will be featured in a special section of The Washington Post on Sunday, June 19.
