Baptist Health South Florida Named One of the Best Workplaces for Diversity by Great Place to Work® and Fortune
MIAMI – December 20, 2019 – Great Place to Work and Fortune have honored Baptist Health South Florida as one of the 2019 Best Workplaces for Diversity. The Best Workplaces for Diversity stand out for creating great workplaces for all employees, regardless of their personal characteristics. Baptist Health took the No. #48 spot on the list.
To determine the list, Great Place to Work analyzed the experiences of women, under-represented races/ethnicities, LGBTQ people, employees who are Boomers or older, and people who have disabilities, comparing their survey results to their colleagues’ results at the same organizations. All told, these anonymous survey responses on more than 60 survey questions reflecting day-to-day workplace treatment represented more than 4.8 million employees’ work lives.
“We’re proud that our diverse employee population is a reflection of the South Florida community we are privileged to serve with compassion and inclusion,” said Adriene McCoy, Baptist Health’s senior vice president and chief human resources officer. “Being named on this list once again is a meaningful honor for our organization, as it reinforces the importance we place on people –our employees, our patients and families and our community.”
“Building great workplaces for all is not only the right thing to do – it’s also a critical way leaders build business value,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “In our study of nearly 2,000 companies we found that key metrics related to equity and inclusion not only drive stronger company innovation, but also predict whether companies will thrive or stumble during a recession.”
The Best Workplaces for Diversity list is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on anonymous employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. Baptist Health South Florida has also been included on the 100 Best Companies to Work For list by Great Place to Work® and Fortune for the last 19 years.
