Since 1954, our mission has been to provide unparalleled family-centered care for our patients and their families. To deliver on this promise, we need engaged employees and physician partners working together in a collaborative and transparent environment.

This survey is one of the most powerful ways we have to measure our team members’ connectivity to Texas Children’s and where there might be gaps. Studies show employees/providers who feel connected to their mission, culture and to one another, deliver better outcomes for patients, their families, and their colleagues.

Have you ever wanted the opportunity to share your perceptions about what it’s like to work at Texas Children’s? Have you ever wanted to share your candid thoughts and ideas about how we can be more efficient and effective as an organization?

If you answered yes, now is your chance to do so in a safe and confidential way. As part of Texas Children’s commitment to open dialogue with employees, we have launched the new Your Texas Children’s Experience survey to provide constructive feedback that will help us formally measure our performance, identify gaps and effectively plan/improve through this process.

“Your voice matters here at Texas Children’s,” said President and CEO Mark A. Wallace. “Recently, I have heard from some of you about concerns and challenges, and today, I want to hear from all of you through Your Texas Children’s Experience survey.”

Administered by Press Ganey from May 18 to Sunday, May 31, Your Texas Children’s Experience survey is confidential, anonymous and takes about 10 minutes to complete. To access the survey, refer to the personalized email with login information you have received from Press Ganey. If you did not get an email or want more information about the survey, contact Press Ganey at hdesk@pressganey.com or call 800-849-2292, option 1.

Since 2003, the engagement survey has been a powerful way to measure how our organization has been upholding our core values. The survey also has served as a catalyst to affect positive changes around such issues as time off, attendance, holidays, benefit plans, the relocation of Employee Health to Main Campus and the addition of the Employee Medical Clinic.

Texas Children’s is aiming to meet or beat our last survey response rate of 83 percent for employees and 45 percent for physicians. Although your participation is voluntary, it is your opportunity to share your honest perceptions about how our organization is performing and positively impacting our culture as well as the experiences of your coworkers and our patient families.

“Response rates for previous surveys have shown that many of you do want to be heard and believe that getting involved is the right thing to do,” Wallace said. “In doing so, you are directly impacting the health of our Texas Children’s culture and our future.”

Texas Children’s Hospital has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Houston for eight years in a row by the Houston Business Journal. Earning a no. 5 ranking last year was especially meaningful to me because it was based solely on your feedback. Once again, it’s survey time!

Help Texas Children’s be a 2014 contender by taking a few minutes to complete the Best Places to Work survey anytime between now and 5 p.m. Friday, August 22. Company scores are always quite close, so your voice really does matter.

As you consider each question, focus on your overall experience at Texas Children’s. To begin, click on or copy and paste this link into your Web browser: http://survey.quantumworkplace.com/bpsurvey/oc_KTGV20036.

No organization is perfect, but thankfully an open and honest dialogue helps Texas Children’s grow stronger. Remember, all responses are anonymous and cannot be traced to individuals.
