Great Place to Work, which partnered with Fortune magazine, has released its Best Workplaces in Health Care 2017 rankings after tallying employee-generated points.
Employees of qualifying companies – those that self-identified as being in the healthcare industry ― answered 58 questions about how often they experience the behaviors that make a workplace great, such as whether they feel physically safe, whether they are proud to work there, and whether employees care about each other.
The Top Five
Topping the list of 30 again this year was Texas Health Resources, headquartered in Arlington, with 18,815 employees. Of 1256 employees surveyed, 94% said their workplace was great. It was also ranked 31 this year in Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For.
The company cited programs and policies that showcase what makes it unique. Among them are low medical premiums with low deductibles and 90% coinsurance and a 401k matching program in which, after 1 year, the company matches every dollar an employee contributes, up to certain limits. Also, Texas Health pays for tuition and some fees for approved degree plans that benefit the employee or the company.
