The Virginia Spine Institute (VSI) has been named one of the Great Places to Work by the Washingtonian magazine for 2009. This prestigious award recognizes VSI’s dedication to employee education and opportunities for career advancement. “We are honored to be recognized as a great place to work. We understand that our success stems from our staff and we are dedicated to ensuring all employees grow personally and professionally. Each of our exceptional employees finds immense personal satisfaction in their contributions to improving the lives of so many,” said Thomas C. Schuler, M.D., CEO of The Virginia Spine Institute.
At The Virginia Spine Institute, educational avenues are provided in the form of weekly academic conferences held at VSI as well as continuing education courses. VSI mentors employees and develops career succession plans to help their associates grow within the organization. VSI also supports their employees’ personal interests and provides a work/life flexibility to help them achieve their goals. Many employees enhance their professional knowledge and develop skills which enable them to pursue careers as nurses, physical therapists, physician’s assistants or physicians.
Every two years the Washingtonian publishes its Great Places to Work list. This year's 50 winning workplaces were chosen on the basis of such measures as: challenging and interesting work, great work-life balance, opportunities to learn and grow, financial stability, commitment to charity and community, and the recognition and respect given to employees. Winners were chosen after a panel of editors and writers reviewed more than 13,000 employee surveys.
