COLUMBUS — Great Place to Work and Fortune have honored OhioHealth as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For.
This is OhioHealth’s 14th time being named to this prestigious list, this year coming in at 49 on the list. Earning a spot means that OhioHealth is one of the best companies to work for in the country.
The Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than half a million current employees across the U.S. In that survey, 81 percent of OhioHealth’s associates said OhioHealth is a great place to work. This number is 22 points higher than the average U.S. company.
OhioHealth is one of four companies headquartered in Ohio and one of nine companies in healthcare on this year’s list.
“We are honored to be named one of Fortune magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For,” said Shereen Solaiman, OhioHealth senior vice president and chief human resources officer. “This award is an honor, but especially in the last year as we fought a pandemic on national scales with our healthcare workers on the front lines. We could not be prouder.”
“The fact that we have been placed on the Fortune list 14 times through years of change and growth speaks to our commitment in building a strong and inclusive culture,” said Solaiman. “We are thrilled to be featured alongside other inspiring companies that care about creating a great place to work for all.”
To determine the 2021 list, Great Place to Work surveyed over half a million employees on issues including how trustworthy, caring and fair the company is in times of crises; employees’ physical, emotional and financial health; and the company’s broader community impact. Particular attention was paid to how employees’ experiences varied depending on their job role, gender, race/ethnicity, payroll status, and other characteristics to ensure that the company is creating a great workplace for all.
“Congratulations to the 100 Best Companies to Work For. These companies stood out for heroic efforts to care for their employees, their customers and our society, in a difficult year,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Remarkably, our research found that employee experience scores rose at these workplaces overall last year – a testament to the resilience of their inclusive, high-trust cultures.”
“Our associates contribute to our culture by living OhioHealth’s core values of Compassion, Excellence, Inclusion, Integrity and Stewardship. We trust and listen to each other, celebrate what we do well and continuously look for ways we can do better. By working together to provide the best experience for our patients and associates, we make an award-winning team,” said Solaiman.
Companies were also assessed on how employees’ experiences varied depending on their job role, gender, race/ethnicity, payroll status, and other characteristics to ensure that the company is creating a great workplace for all.
This year, 60% of each company’s score is based on confidential employee feedback. The remaining 40 percent is based on the programs each company said they created to support their people and communities in response to the pandemic. This methodology represents a change in response to the unique circumstances of 2020.
In pre-pandemic times, 75% of each company’s score is based on confidential employee feedback and 25% is based on our assessment of employees’ daily experiences of the company’s values, people’s ability to contribute new ideas, and their leaders’ effectiveness. Great Place to Work will be returning to this methodology next year.
