Baptist Health South Florida Ranks 19th on 2014 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® List
MIAMI --(Business Wire)--
Baptist Health South Florida has been named one of the "100 Best
Companies to Work For" by Fortune magazine for 2014. Ranked 19th
on the list, it is the 14th time the healthcare organization
has earned a spot on the list.
Baptist Health is ranked as the number-one employer in Florida and
number two overall in the healthcare industry. Baptist Health also
claims the number-one position on the list once again as the employer
with the largest percentage of minorities.
"Baptist Health is honored to be included in these esteemed rankings for
the 14th year," said Brian E. Keeley, president and CEO. "Our
employees continue to demonstrate a collective commitment to excellence
that truly makes this a great place to work."
Baptist Health employees have an extensive menu of work/life benefits,
which include on-site child care, back-up care options for family
members of any age, free online and on-site educational offerings, an
award-winning employee wellness program with free fitness centers, one
week of paid parental leave, a $10,000 adoption benefit, and
"LifeWorks," which offers employees and their families 24/7 access to
information and help with a wide range of issues.
To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, Fortune partners with the
Great Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employee
survey in corporate America; 257 firms participated in this year's
survey. More than 252,000 employees at those companies were surveyed by
the insitute, a global research and consulting firm operating in 45
countries around the world. Two-thirds of a company's score is based on
the results of the institute's Trust Index survey, which is sent to a
random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions
related to their attitudes about management's credibility, job
satisfaction and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses to
the institute's 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. After evaluations are
completed, if news about a company comes to light that may significantly
damage employees' faith in management, the institute may exclude it from
the list. Any company that is at least five years old and has more than
1,000 U.S. employees is eligible.
