The ‘CQ Secret’ – Improving the Patient Experience by Creating an Unparalleled Work Experience

Employees unitedMany successful organizations shine at driving a culture that fosters business success.  Unfortunately, we can all identify organizations that don’t foster a positive culture and equally see why it hinders their success.

At CQuence Health Group, we have worked purposefully to ensure our culture drives our businesses forward.  The “CQ Secret” is hardly a hush-hush strategy. In fact, when I get asked, “what’s your secret?” to attracting the best and brightest minds, I can hardly get the words out fast enough.

During my 20-plus years in human resources, I’ve seen many winning “recipes” for workplace culture, but none have been better than at CQuence Health Group. Here, many factors contribute to the CQ Secret. As a company, we take to heart our mission to strengthen community healthcare and help patients access the right care when they need it. We also set our standards high—both in the goals we establish and the people we hire.

Ultimately, it’s our employees who bring the CQ Secret to life. CQuence, Ensocare and Cassling employees put our culture into action everyday as we work together to make great things happen for our customers, our community and each other. It is they who help us build meaningful relationships with the healthcare providers who make a difference in the world.  We’re not just selling our customers a product; we establish real, long-lasting partnerships in order to ensure exceptional care for those in need of healthcare services. Our people achieve success because they believe fully in that mission and in the missions of the many hospitals and health systems we’re honored to work with each and every day.

So what do actual CQuence employees think about the CQ Secret? Here is some insight into what it’s like to work for a CQuence company, in employees’ own words:

“The CQ secret is the willingness of individuals and departments to work together to achieve company goals without pointing fingers when hitting bumps in the road. It’s an executive team that’s acutely aware of changes in the healthcare industry, always strategizing to keep CQ prosperous by recognizing and responding to our current and future customer needs.”
Joan Boulay, Controller, CQuence Health Group

“I am proud to be part of a company that is well-prepared for future healthcare needs, that focuses on individuals’ growth, grooming better work ethics and culture, and providing better opportunities and challenges that make a better future together.”
Rajesh Ponmudi, Senior Software Engineer, Ensocare

“The CQ Secret is the commitment to keeping the employees balanced and healthy. The opportunities to make mindful choices are plentiful and part of our culture. Whether it’s taking a fitness class in our onsite gym, using VTO to volunteer, participating in the book club or using the wellness allowance for pampering like a massage or a round of golf, we are completely supported in mind, body and soul health here at CQuence.”
Mandy Olderog, Sales Contract Coordinator, Cassling

As this year draws to a close, we’re excited about what’s in store for 2018. In healthcare, change is constant but our culture is steadfast and readies us for these changes. Our employees’ have a willingness to live up to what it takes to be an impactful company in our community and industry.

Keep in touch in the New Year, as we’re about to let the world know, in a big way, what it means to be a part of the #CQSecret.
