Lexi-Comp, Inc. Receives NorthCoast 99 Honor

Hudson company is recognized as one of Northeast Ohio's 99 great workplaces for top talent

Hudson, OH (PRWEB) September 2, 2009 -- Lexi-Comp, Inc., a leader in providing drug and clinical information for healthcare professionals and health information systems, has been selected as one of Northeast Ohio's 99 great workplaces for top talent. The Hudson-based, privately-owned company was founded in 1978 and its continued growth and commitment to excellence will be formally recognized at the NorthCoast 99 Awards Dinner later this month.

Now in its 31st year of business in Northeast Ohio, Lexi-Comp has grown from a start-up company producing printed laboratory manuals to a provider of drug reference and clinical decision support information delivered electronically to healthcare professionals around the globe. Chairman and founder, Robert D. Kerscher, built the business with a strong focus on providing exceptional customer service, listening to client feedback, and responding to the marketplace. He believes achieving these goals begins with serving the needs of employees and retaining exceptional talent. This philosophy has served the company well and has been upheld through the transition of strategic management and oversight of the company's daily operations to his son, Steven M. Kerscher.

"We are very honored to receive the NorthCoast 99 Award," comments Robert Kerscher. "I can certainly speak from experience on the importance of surrounding yourself with talented people to help make your lifelong vision a reality. The key for us has been a step-by-step approach. It went very smoothly because we had a simple plan of gaining the confidence of our people and diligently maintaining the culture on which the company was founded."

Through a rigorous review and selection process, the NorthCoast 99 program addresses seven key workplace characteristics integral to attracting and retaining individuals who perform at the highest level: flexibility, opportunity, recognition, development, security, support, and talent integrity.

These attributes have been well-established in the Lexi-Comp culture for years. Perhaps the most ingrained of these key attributes are flexibility and support of its employees. A people-centric attitude prevails during personal extenuating circumstances, such as an employee who needs to care for a family member or work flexible hours to manage work and home life appropriately. This focus on the health and well-being of employees is also evident in programs like the formation of a Wellness Committee, publicized healthy lifestyle tips, and encouraged participation in local activities such as the Akron Road Runner Marathon.

Having grown from 90 to over 130 employees in the last 5 years, a clearly defined performance management system has become essential, emphasizing the company's core values and fostering a culture of excellence, self-motivation, accountability, and formal recruitment policies. This system is backed by a program that offers recognition of exceptional performance by both managers and peers, and Years of Service awards presented to employees for their dedication to Lexi-Comp.

Steven Kerscher, president and COO, understands the importance of open communication and credibility in leadership. He comments, "We view our people as our most valuable resource, and the key to taking our company to the next level. Providing opportunities for involvement, consistently focusing on our goals, and clearly communicating how we're doing along the way allows everyone to be part of the success."

Employees have multiple channels for providing feedback and receiving corporate communication, such as a Policy and Culture Committee, monthly company meetings, frequent company forums held by the president, a corporate Intranet for submitting comments and suggestions anonymously, and a quarterly company newsletter. A corporate-wide "open door" policy encourages employees to share ideas, participate in new programs, and feel part of the company's growth.
