Opening Discussion Topic:
In February, Royal Ambulance was honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award for “Best Places to Work in 2021,” adding to their list of accomplishments such as Best Places to Work from Modern Healthcare in 2018 and from the San Francisco Business Times in 2017.
What does it take to be an employer employees love? After our Members’ Discussion about what they’re doing to win the hearts and minds of their team – and anything that’s “hot on their plate,” our Featured Presenters will be ABL Member Steve Grau, President & CEO, joined by his wife, Eve Grau, Royal Ambulance’s co-owner and VP of Human Resources. Together the couple will share how, starting from scratch, they’ve built Royal into a nationally recognized company, centered on their values and mission: “To positively impact the patient’s journey, make our customers’ jobs easier, and develop healthcare leaders.” They’ll also discuss how, in an industry notorious for extraordinarily high turnover, they’ve grown consistently by meeting and exceeding Glassdoor’s metrics for offering their employees a strong culture and values, career opportunities – as well as work-life balance.
They will share strategies for Employee Recruitment and Engagement in the healthcare industry, which is notorious for staffing challenges and an extremely competitive environment.
Our Silicon Valley Healthcare Round Table meets on the 2nd Tuessday of each month. We have been meeting via ZOOM since April, and look forward to meeting again in person – once we can do so safely, hopefully early in the New Year.
