Chicago, Ill (PRWEB) September 08, 2015 -- Retrofit, a leading provider of corporate weight-management solutions that deliver proven outcomes and lasting results, announced today that it has been named one of the 20 Best Workplaces in Health Care by Great Place to Work® and Fortune. The ranking is based entirely on an anonymous survey of nearly 30,000 health-care industry employees.
“Retrofit’s ranking on the Fortune and Great Place to Work 20 Best Workplaces in Health Care list is especially meaningful, because it reflects the company’s foundational commitment to employee happiness and well-being,” says Mary Pigatti, Retrofit CEO. “Retrofit continually nurtures its workplace culture, because a healthy and happy work environment is a leading indicator of our clients’ satisfaction and our participants’ results.”
The 20 Best Workplaces in Health Care ranking is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune. It draws from a universe of approximately 600 companies with published Great Place to Work Reviews in 2015, including 46 that self-identified as being in the healthcare industry. The program leverages the Great Place to Work Trust Index© employee assessment to measure specific dimensions of workplace culture. Results, which are published on Fortune.com and on the Great Place to Work web site, give job seekers insight about prospective employers and the qualities of top-performing workplaces.
All of the 38 Retrofit employees that participated in the survey rated the company as a great workplace, indicating that:
• “I’m proud to tell others I work here.”
• “People here are willing to give extra to get the job done.”
• “Management is honest and ethical in its business practices.”
• “I am able to take time off from work when I think it’s necessary.”
• “You can count on people to cooperate.”
“Healthcare organizations have a responsibility not only to their employees but to their clients to provide workplaces that support and bring out the best in their people,” says Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work® United States. “Great workplaces are constantly monitoring and analyzing their employees’ workplace experiences and then taking action to improve them. Ranking on this list is a great indicator that these companies’ efforts to create great workplaces are resonating with their staff.”
