Great Place to Work® and Fortune Name Baptist Health South Florida One of the Best Workplaces for Diversity
Miami, FL – December 6, 2018 – Baptist Health South Florida has been named one of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Diversity by Great Place to Work® and Fortune. Baptist Health was ranked No. 33 on the list. Rankings are based on employees’ assessments of trust, pride and camaraderie they experience in their workplace, daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders, among other factors.
“Our diversity is one of the many strengths ingrained in our organizational culture that enables us to provide compassionate care to each other and the various populations we serve throughout South Florida and beyond,” said Adriene McCoy, Baptist Health’s corporate vice president and chief human resources officer. “It is an honor to be recognized once again for the high value we place on our individual employees, multicultural workforce and inclusive environment.”
The Best Workplaces for Diversity not only stand out for how diverse each organization and its management team is, but for how employees themselves report they are really treated in their workplaces. They are also notable for creating great workplaces for all employees, regardless of their personal characteristics.
“The 2018 Best Workplaces for Diversity are at the forefront of creating workplaces that are better for business and better for their people,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “These workplaces not only pay attention to how diverse their workforce and management teams are, but close critical gaps in how all their people are treated and developed day-to-day.”
Baptist Health South Florida is also included on the 100 Best Companies to Work For list by Great Place to Work® and Fortune for the last 18 years.
