CaroMont Health understands that caring doesn’t stop with its patients. “When we take good care of our employees, we empower them to take even better care of our patients. We’ve built a positive, inspiring culture with benefits that reward hard work,” says Douglas R. Luckett. Some years ago, the company had established 16 core values, and though they were meaningful, the extensive list didn’t create a clear and cohesive culture. So CaroMont’s employee advisory committee worked for months on developing a new set of values that has become the company’s rallying cry: CaroMont CARES. CARES stands for compassion, accountability, respect, excellence and safety. The culture at the company has grown to encapsulate a robust wellness plan, continuing education options, and a safe and communicative environment.
“Employees who are engaged are going to be excited about what they do, do it well and bring others along with them.”
