“Our coworkers are our most valuable resource, and as an organization we strive to provide a workplace they can be proud of,” said Dena Jacquay, chief human resources officer, Parkview Health. “When our employees are engaged and demonstrating the highest level of teamwork, we can provide the highest level of care to the communities we serve. Engaged employees put the organization in the best position to inspire well-being throughout the region.”
