More than 2,200 City of Hope staff and faculty participated in the recent follow-up to the Organizational Survey, the biggest response yet to the institution’s employee feedback initiative.
Administrators said the high completion rate — 58 percent of employees — makes resulting conclusions more helpful and valid.
“I would like to thank all of our employees who participated in the follow-up to the survey,” said Michael A. Friedman, M.D., president and chief executive officer. “Not only will this allow us to chart our progress as a whole and within entities at City of Hope, but it also will enable us to compare ourselves to other cancer centers, research hospitals and nonprofit organizations.”
An independent company is analyzing survey data. City of Hope leaders will release results of the survey in mid-to-late July.
Organizers also recently held a drawing in conjunction with the survey. The names of 10 employees who completed the survey were drawn at random.
These employees won prizes in the drawing:
- Saro Armenian, D.O., M.P.H., Populations Sciences
- Jay Benson, Safety and Occupational Health
- Julie Filkoff, Event Services
- Geeta Ramdat, Development Research
- Alma Cabatingan, R.N., Donor Center Operations
- Chantal Kerr, R.N., East Hospital Unit A
- Diana Diaz-Arevalo, Ph.D., Immunology
- Christopher Fanelli, Development
- Brian Nguyen, Clinical Pathology
- Monica Guerrero, Clinical Trials Office
