Washington's 100 Best Companies to Work For 2009
Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) July 9, 2009
Talyst, a leader in pharmacy automation systems, found June to be an award-filled month as it received kudos for cultivating an excellent work environment. Talyst was awarded as one of "Washington's 100 Best Companies to Work For 2009" by Seattle Business Monthly, and is a finalist for the Puget Sound Business Journal's "Washington's Best Workplaces."
Talyst is a relatively small company with just over 100 employees, but its products play a crucial role in health care facilities. Talyst provides automated medication management hardware and software to acute care hospital pharmacies, long-term care facilities and correctional facilities nationwide. With Talyst's products, the right medications go to the right patient at the right time and in the right dose. It is fast-paced and demanding work, but Talyst's employees meet that challenge.
"Our employees are the lifeblood of our company, and we work hard to provide them with a productive, positive and fun work environment," said Carla Corkern, Talyst CEO and chairman of the board. "Most rewarding for all of us, however, is knowing the profound impact our work has on both improving safety outcomes for patients in health care facilities and diminishing the waste footprints generated by traditional medication dispensing methods."
Talyst has been recognized by both awards for providing excellent benefits, work/life balance and an exceptional leadership culture. Talyst earned these honors by offering flexible schedules to ensure that employees' family is never neglected; scheduling quarterly All-Hands Meetings to deliver honest fiscal outlooks, share smart strategies and honor individual and group achievements; and offering broad support for continuing education and training.
Talyst's successes extend beyond the workplace to numerous additional industry awards including Inc. Magazine's "Inc. 500" list of fastest-growing U.S. private companies, the Deloitte "Fast 50" Technology Companies in Washington State, the Puget Sound Business Journal (PSBJ) Fastest Growing Private Companies and the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce Eastside Business Awards.
Talyst is engineering the safer pharmacy. The company was founded in 2002 to provide easy-to-use, automated medication management systems to acute care hospital pharmacies. The following year, Talyst launched AutoPharm®, the innovative software platform designed to integrate medication storage, inventory, ordering, barcoding, and clinical systems.
By 2009, Talyst had installed automated systems in close to 400 acute care hospitals and integrated healthcare companies. By leveraging our expertise in acute care pharmacy automation, we are now building unique systems designed specifically to meet the needs of long-term care facilities and correctional institutions. Talyst is dedicated to delivering world-class software and proven hardware components to enhance efficiency, provide greater inventory control, and improve patient safety in all environments.
