FFL Wins a SE Wisconsin Area 2016 Top Workplaces Award

News Release dated 4/11/16


The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Names Flight For Life a Winner of the Southeast Wisconsin Area 2016 Top Workplaces Award


Waukesha, WI ---April 11, 2016--- Flight For Life Transport System has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.


“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”


“This award is really a reflection on each and every member of our team,” said Jim Singer, Transport System Director. “The high level of care our staff provides is a direct result of the culture created by our employees, one that prioritizes safety, collaboration, and providing the very best care to our patients and the communities we serve.”


Headquartered in Waukesha, Wisconsin, Flight For Life operates bases in Waukesha and Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, and McHenry Illinois. The program began in 1984 as Wisconsin’s first medical helicopter service and has completed nearly 35,000 patient transports.
