Cottage Health 2019 Culture Audit

While we take our jobs very seriously, we also know how to have a great time with each other. Cottage Health sponsors numerous events throughout the year to help lighten the load and bring some fun and humor to the workplace. Employees Recognized for Milestones It’s one of Cottage Health’s most anticipated events each year. What happens when a group of over 500 experienced Cottage employees and guests fill a beachside ballroom? Lots and lots of applause, fun, laughs, awards and a delicious dinner. Each year, employees with service milestones (five, 10, 15, 20…) are invited to bring a guest to the event, which is held at a 4-star hotel in Santa Barbara. The fun and lively evening is capped off with a humorous skit by our Executive team. Past skits have included a Back to the Future theme, which commemorated Cottage Health’s founding in 1891 for our 125th anniversary, Star Wars and a late night talk show. The Best Summer Picnic in Santa Barbara CH hosts an annual picnic in the park, attended by over 2,000 employees, volunteers and their families. Employees attend for free, and guests pay a nominal fee. They are treated to a host of picnic games (bingo, bounce houses, face painting), as well as a full buffet meal featuring chicken, ribs and tri-tip and churros. Traditional picnic goodies like popcorn, snow cones and hot dogs are also on hand. 6.33 How do you encourage fun and camaraderie among your employees?
