Oklahoma City Indian Clinic is named 2020’s Best Place to Work in Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City Indian Clinic has received this award ten times in the past twelve years.

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City Indian Clinic (OKCIC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit clinic providing health and wellness services to American Indians in central Oklahoma, was recently selected as one of Oklahoma’s 2020’s Best Places to Work in Oklahoma in the small businesses category. OKCIC has been honored with this title for ten years, including 2009 – 2012 and 2015 – 2020.

The Journal Record teamed up with the Best Companies Group to honor Oklahoma businesses and organizations excelling in creating quality workplaces. Companies were selected based on employees’ interviews and workplace policies, practices and demographics.

OKCIC offers competitive benefits to employees and their families, including medical and dental health coverage. OKCIC also offers employees generous paid time off, casual dress days and a supportive team atmosphere.

During COVID-19, OKCIC Executives and Board of Directors have created and implemented a pandemic plan which provides safety measures for employees and patients. These safety measures include wearing face masks upon entry to the facility; locking OKCIC entrances and taking staff and patients temperatures and symptom screenings; providing N95 masks to all staff; routine COVID-19 updates from the CEO to provide clear and consistent messaging to staff; and allowing the majority of non-essential staff to work remotely from home.

“I think it’s a great place to work because at Oklahoma City Indian Clinic we put people first, which includes our patients and employees,” Monica Krienke said, OKCIC’s Chief Human Resources Officer.

The clinic encourages healthy living by offering access to virtual one-on-one workout sessions with personal trainers, virtual appointments with registered dietitians, and health competitions for prizes covering health and weight loss improvements.

OKCIC’s core values include quality, integrity, professionalism and putting people first.

“Oklahoma City Indian Clinic has grown a lot in the last few years,” Krienke said. “Even with this explosion in growth, our staff continues to maintain a family atmosphere.”

To be considered, companies had to have both a facility and 25 or more permanent employees working in the state of Oklahoma.
