May 23, 2017 | Press Releases , Workforce Solutions

Aya Healthcare, the nation’s leading provider of travel nurse staffing and workforce solutions to healthcare facilities, made Modern Healthcare’s 2017 list of Best Places to Work in Healthcare.

Each year, Modern Healthcare recognizes United States companies in the healthcare industry that provide exceptional work environments for their employees. Responses to an employee survey and an employer questionnaire help determine the winners. Employees rate job satisfaction, work-life balance, benefits and more.

“Aya is unlike any other place I’ve ever worked,” said Jeff Piersons, Aya Healthcare Director of Recruiting. “Everyone is always smiling, laughing and having a good time. It’s an upbeat, exciting environment that allows us to deliver a first class service.”

Aya Healthcare believes in creating exceptional experiences for its employees. Some of their unique employee perks include 100% employer-paid healthcare premiums, free on-site fitness classes, fully stocked kitchens of healthy food, flexible schedules with work-from-home options, unlimited paid time off and more. Plus, Aya regularly celebrates individual and companywide accomplishments, big and small – from weekend trips to Catalina Island for all corporate employees to quarterly team building outings of indoor skydiving, bowling or bubble soccer. Aya continuously fosters a strong company culture and commitment to excellence which has contributed to its rapid growth and strong retention rates.

“It’s a dream job!” said Anisah Farah, Aya Healthcare Recruiter Coordinator Lead. “I wake up every day excited to come to work. They offer everything you’d ever want from a company.”

Aya Healthcare believes that people who care more have the best outcomes. That philosophy is seen in its reputation as the premier provider of travel nurse staffing and workforce solutions to healthcare facilities across the nation.

“You will not find another company that has a harder working group of people that are also incredibly fun and supportive,” said Amber Zeeb, Aya Healthcare Vice President of Employee Experience. “Our CEO Alan Braynin has instilled the importance of putting people first in all of his leaders and it flows downstream to create this wonderful culture of smart, supportive, down-to-earth rock stars.”

The Modern Healthcare Best Places to Work in Healthcare 2017 rankings will be announced live at an awards gala on September 28, 2017 at the W Las Vegas. View the 2017 non-rank, alphabetical list at
