Cincinnati (May 9, 2017) – The Christ Hospital has been named one of America’s Best Large Employers by Forbes Magazine for the first time.
“Our employees are the reason we have been the region’s Most Preferred hospital for 21 consecutive years, and we are thankful for their efforts, their enthusiasm, their loyalty and the compassion they show our patients and family members every day,” said Mike Keating, president and CEO of The Christ Hospital Health Network.
Forbes, the business magazine that has been publishing since 1917, is a trusted resource for the world’s business leaders and the number one business news source in the world. The publication is also known for its lists and rankings, including the world’s top companies, the Forbes Global 2000.
Forbes, working with online statistics provider Statista, surveyed more than 30,000 U. S. employees working at large companies (5,000+ employees). Employees were contacted anonymously, via online panels, without the involvement of their employer. They were asked two questions:
• On a scale of zero to 10, rate your willingness to recommend your own company to someone else.
• Name good or bad employers in sectors or industries besides their own.
“The award reflects to us that the road we’re on, providing each employee with Total Value…a healthy work-life balance, competitive compensation, benefits that are flexible and that cover things that are meaningful to you, development opportunities so employees can be their best self, and a culture of compassion…is the right one,” said Paul Gelter, vice president and chief administrative officer of The Christ Hospital Health Network.
The Christ Hospital is one of 500 large employers named on the list.
