Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE Name Baptist Health South Florida One of the Best Workplaces for Women
MIAMI, FL – September 21, 2017 – As an organization that prides itself on the hard work of each and every employee to deliver outstanding healthcare to our patients and their families, Baptist Health South Florida is honored to be named one of the country’s Best Workplaces for Women by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE.
The list considered more than 400,000 employee surveys from hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. The ranking gauged women’s assessment of their organizations’ culture, leadership, fairness and other elements essential for a great workplace. Baptist Health came in #46 on the list.
“At Baptist Health, we know our people are the key to our success in caring for others, and that’s why we are passionate about offering employees many avenues to nurture their personal and professional growth and development,” said Adriene McCoy, corporate vice president and chief human resources officer for Baptist Health South Florida. “It’s important to us that all of our employees feel supported and valued for the important work they do – it’s part of our culture.”
Research from Great Place to Work has shown that women are five times more likely to plan a long-term future with their employers when they say they’re treated as full members of the team, regardless of position. The Best Workplaces for Women also set themselves apart from competitors in other important ways: 95 percent of women at these organizations describe them as friendly, and the same share say they’re proud to tell others where they work.
“The Best Workplaces for Women deserve recognition for crafting environments where men and women alike can bring their best selves to work each day,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.
