A family owned pharmacy in Redding is getting some national recognition for being an excellent place to work.
Earlier this month Owen’s Healthcare was named by fortune magazine as one of the best healthcare companies to work for in the nation.
The company makes sure the employees feel appreciated, by giving perks ranging from flexible hours to fun activities.
We spoke to both the employees and the management who agree that happy employees lead to happy customers.
“Our employees are as big of a focus to us as making sure that we're profitable,” said Miley Imlach, Owens’ human resources manager.
“It's got like a really great family feel here,” said Jon Palmer, an employee at Owen’s healthcare. “I love the coworkers and the people that I work with. Everybody’s been super friendly, great. I mean I couldn't ask for a better environment.”
Owen’s Healthcare grew from just a neighborhood drugstore in 1957 to 22 locations across northern California.
