Respect at all levels. If I emailed a VP, I had a personal response the same day. I never had occasion to contact the Ceo.
Manager (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – January 29, 2017
I think the way Bon Secours actively works at making each employee feel equal, even special, was an eye-opener to me. When I went for my initial interview, my new manager took me on a tour of the hospital and he literally knew the name and family situation of each employee we encountered.
A personal event that really touched me: Before I ever met the man who would become my boss, he sang at an event I attended. He has a beautiful voice. For years I tried to get him to sing at a volunteer event. Nay-nay. But at my farewell, he sang "Happy trails to you." He'd heard me. They also gave me a framed print of the hospital signed by almost everyone, I treasure it and my time there.
There was no "typical" day at work but the reports still got done in a timely manner and we survived the crises.

As a health-focused organization, most job advancment went to the healthcare workers. Although we received annual pay increases, actual advances were rare for many positions.
