Trilogy Health Services Honored as One of the Best Places to Work in 2020, a Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award Winner

Press Release – updated: Dec 11, 2019 15:00 EST

LOUISVILLE, Ky., December 11, 2019 (Newswire.com) – Trilogy Health Services has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2020. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its 12th year, is based solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies on Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites. In addition to securing Trilogy a stellar score of 4.3 out of 5, Glassdoor reviews made by employees have also awarded Trilogy’s president and CEO Leigh Ann Barney a 92% approval rating. 
“It’s our goal for our employees to view Trilogy as the best place they have ever worked,” commented Barney. “We employ so many compassionate, hard-working people; it’s only right to invest in their employee experience and to support them any way we can. Programs such as our Fast Track Apprenticeship program, our Student Loan and Scholarship programs, and our recent partnership with Purdue Global have empowered our employees to excel both personally and professionally. This has translated to a high rate of employee satisfaction, which is evidenced by awards such as this. I am truly thankful that our employees have shared their love for Trilogy by providing their feedback on Glassdoor, and I look forward to continuing to invest in their fulfillment and success in the years to come.”
“This year marks the shift to a culture-first decade in the workplace, and Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Awards winners are employers that are prioritizing culture, mission and employees at the heart of everything they do. By doing so, their employees have spoken and are recognizing them truly as the Best Places to Work in 2020,”  said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor president, chief operating officer and incoming chief executive officer. “In addition to putting culture and mission at the core of how they operate, this year’s winners stand out for promoting transparency with employees, offering career growth opportunities and providing work driven by impact and purpose. Congratulations go to all of the exceptional employers this year who stand out in the eyes of their employees.”
On Glassdoor, current and former employees voluntarily and anonymously share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a company review, designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what a specific job may be like at a particular company. When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, senior management and work/life balance. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies, as well as any downsides.
Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work were determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between October 23, 2018, and October 21, 2019. To be considered for the U.S. large category, a company must have had at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 75 ratings across each of the eight workplace attributes from U.S.-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled using Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, led by its Economic Research Team, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.

New DDI Research: 57 Percent of Employees Quit Because of Their Boss

New data from DDI’s Frontline Leader Project reveal the emotions behind frontline management
Press Release – updated: Dec 9, 2019 11:34 EST

PITTSBURGH, December 9, 2019 (Newswire.com) – Frustrations with the boss drive more than half of employees out the door. An additional third stick around, but dream of opportunities to get away from their manager.
But why?
New data published in DDI’s Frontline Leader Project dives into the emotions and relationships of frontline managers. The survey collected data from more than 1,000 managers, senior leaders, and individual contributors. The published findings reveal the anxieties, frustrations, and rewarding moments experienced by frontline managers, as well as the reflections of their senior leaders and direct reports.
“The research makes a clear case that we should stop using the term ‘soft skills’ to describe what are really critical leadership skills,” said Stephanie Neal, director of DDI’s Center for Analytics and Behavioral Research (CABER). “How leaders manage their emotions and how they make other people feel are the strongest drivers of talent retention. This leadership study gives an inside glimpse into the emotions surrounding frontline leaders to help organizations pinpoint the crucial gaps where people need more support.”
Key findings in the research include:
·         People quit bosses. The research proves the old trope: People leave managers, not companies. 57 percent of employees have left a job because of their manager. Furthermore, 14 percent have left multiple jobs because of their managers. An additional 32 percent have seriously considered leaving because of their manager. 
·         Office politics and a time crunch are chief sources of stress. For managers and individual contributors alike, the two chief sources of stress are not enough time to do everything and dealing with office politics. Senior leaders also recognize how busy frontline leaders are, citing too many responsibilities and a lack of time for development as top barriers to success.
·         Managers are drowning in tough conversations. Senior leaders say the top weakness of frontline managers is their ability to have difficult performance conversations with their direct reports. And frontline managers agree; they rate difficult conversations, coaching, and engaging their teams as their top challenges.
·         A sense of purpose is the #1 driver of performance. Employees most commonly cite “wanting to have a positive impact on the world” as their primary motivating factor to succeed at work. They’re also highly motivated by having ownership over projects, wanting to earn respect from family and peers, earning a promotion, and wanting to earn more money.
·         The move to leadership is typically unexpected – and can trigger regret. Seventy percent of frontline managers said they weren’t expecting the promotion to leadership. While 20 percent were excited by the prospect of leadership, 17 percent only took the role because it seemed like the right next step. An additional 19 percent simply took it for the pay raise. Unfortunately, 18 percent of leaders also regret taking the role, and another 41 percent have doubts about whether it was the right move.
