Being selected as a Frontline Healthcare Worker Champion gives employers national recognition for their workforce development strategies. Each organization receives customized marketing materials, is featured in CareerSTAT communications, and provided access to peer learning and technical assistance to further their advancement programs.
Organizations that meet all of the peer-defined criteria are recognized as Champions; an Emerging Champion designation is awarded to organizations that meet some, but not all of the criteria.
We will be honoring the selected Champion and Emerging Champion organizations later this year at The Time is Now.
Representing 51 organizations across the country and the healthcare continuum, Frontline Champions are creating business impact by investing in the skills and educations of their frontline employees. While all CareerSTAT Champions are making significant investments in the skills and careers of their frontline employees, recognition is separated into Champion and Emerging Champion organizations.
Emerging Champions are organizations that are in the earlier stages of making investments in the skill and career development of their employees. They meet some, but not all, of CareerSTAT’s recognition criteria.
