Baptist Health South Florida Named One of the 100 Best Companies to Work For® by Great Place to Work® and Fortune
This is Baptist Health’s 21st Time on the List
MIAMI, FL – April 13, 2021 – Great Place to Work and Fortune have honored Baptist Health South Florida as one of this year’s 100 Best Companies to Work For® in the country. This is the 21st time Baptist Health has been recognized on the list, this year earning the #45 spot.
“Throughout the past year when our community and our employees needed us most, we have provided support and resources to all of our dedicated heroes on the front lines and behind the scenes who work tirelessly to provide great care for our patients and families,” said Brian E. Keeley, president and CEO of Baptist Health South Florida. “We are dedicated to our important mission, teamwork and excellence, and this year especially we are honored to be ranked among the many great workplaces in the nation.”
To determine the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® 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.”
Earlier this year, Baptist Health also ranked as a Best Workplace in Healthcare and Biopharma. It also has been named a Best Workplace for Women and for Diversity. In addition, Baptist Health was named to the PEOPLE Companies that Care® list in 2019 and 2020.
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.
