MIAMI, Fla. (PRWEB) March 03, 2016
Baptist Health South Florida is once again one of the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For, according to Fortune Magazine and global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work®. This is the 16th time Baptist Health has been named to the prestigious list, which recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace cultures.
Baptist Health is the highest ranking non-profit and the top healthcare provider on the list. Once again, Baptist Health topped the list of employers with the most diversified staff in terms of minorities (73 percent). Additionally, Baptist Health ranked in the top ten for its percentage of women employees (73 percent).
"The defining characteristic of Baptist Health is our people: the caring and compassionate employees and caregivers who touch the lives of all those who enter through our doors,” said Brian E. Keeley, president and CEO of Baptist Health South Florida. “As the most preferred employer in South Florida, we continually strive to provide an environment that attracts the best and the brightest--and people who embrace our culture of always putting our patients first. With this commitment to clinical and service excellence, we continue to maintain and enhance our reputation as the #1 healthcare provider in South Florida."
Baptist Health employees have many work/life benefits, which include on-site child care at various facilities, free online and on-site educational offerings, a retirement plan with matching contributions, paid time off cashouts, a fund that provides interest-free loans to employees who need help for an unusual or unexpected financial crisis, and an award-winning employee wellness program that includes free on-site employee clinics, free fitness centers, nationally recognized classes, a cutting-edge health management program, training clubs and fitness classes.
“Now more than ever, it is important for companies to prove they are great workplaces,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “Top talent expects as much as they seek new opportunities, and customers are demanding it as well as they decide where to spend their dollars. The 100 best workplaces are at the top of the heap in demonstrating they have a high-trust, high-performing culture.”
To identify the 100 Best Companies to Work For, each year Fortune partners with Great Place to Work to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. Two-thirds of a company’s survey score is based on the results of the Trust Index Employee Survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. This survey asks questions related to employees’ attitudes about management’s credibility, overall job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses to the Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts.
