Ranked 39th on Prestigious List; Highest Ranked Company Based in Georgia
MARIETTA, Ga., Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- WellStar has been named one of the 2014 FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For®, which recognizes companies across the country that have exceptional workplace cultures. As the largest not-for-profit health system in Georgia, WellStar has always been a leader in the community. This new award recognizes the System's commitment to taking care of the people who take care of others.
WellStar was selected among hundreds of companies vying for a place on the list this year. Applicant companies opt to participate in the selection process, which includes an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about their programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® then evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie.
"WellStar strives to cultivate a trusting and caring work atmosphere where our more than 13,000 team members feel pride in our System and their work," said David Anderson, executive vice president of human resources, organizational learning and chief compliance officer. "As a System, we have always put our people first, and we will continue to look for ways to foster a healthy work-life balance. Being named to the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® List is validation that our efforts have not gone unnoticed by our team members or our community."
Ranked 39th on the list, which is now in its 17th year, WellStar has been recognized numerous times over the past decade by organizations like Working Mother Magazine and AARP for its commitment to people. This success happens because WellStar is committed to regularly evaluating its workforce culture to ensure the best things are happening to benefit both team members and the System.
"The FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® list grows more competitive every year and this list represents the best of the best," said China Gorman, Global Chief Executive Officer of Great Place to Work®. "While each company is unique, what they have in common are strong cultures that support positive workplaces."
Organizations named on the list see many benefits that include better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.
