The sixth annual report, released in April, ranked ACEP at number 49.
The ranking reflects each nonprofit’s strengths and opportunities, which were determined by a thorough assessment of all the organizations. This multipart process was designed to gather detailed data about each participating nonprofit via a questionnaire, confidential employee surveys, and sources outside the organization.
“This is a tremendous honor and a testament to the work environment we have created at ACEP,” said Dean Wilkerson, ACEP’s executive director. “It is also a strong reflection of the volunteer leadership and their ability to foster an atmosphere that promotes and attracts quality staff who are engaged, enthusiastic, and find strong quality of life at ACEP.”
The report’s data focused on eight core areas:
- Leadership and planning
- Corporate culture and communications
- Role satisfaction
- Work environment
- Relationship with supervisor
- Training, development, and resources
- Pay and benefits
- Overall engagement
Nonprofits on the list scored on average 90 percent on the survey compared with 76 percent by all nonprofits that did not make the list. The biggest disparities were found within the categories of leadership and planning (90 percent for nonprofits on the list compared to 71 percent for those not on the list) and corporate culture and communications (88 percent versus 71 percent).
“Being named one of the top 50 nonprofits to work for is something we are proud of,” Mr. Wilkerson said. “This can be a great recruiting tool for us to continue to find the best and brightest to support our members’ practice needs and goals as they continue to provide the highest quality care for their patients.”
