Seramount Names Baptist Health South Florida as One of the 100 Best Companies for 2021
MIAMI – September 28, 2021 — Baptist Health South Florida earned a spot on this year’s 100 Best Companies list by Seramount (formerly Working Mother Media). This is the 29th time Baptist Health has made the annual list.
The 2021 honorees represent almost four million employees in the United States. This year’s winners are focusing on inclusive benefits for families, including paid gender-neutral parental leave and how these organizations supported their employees throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
“For the past 18 months, it has been more important than ever for us to provide ongoing support and resources to our dedicated employees who have been on the front lines and behind the scenes responding to the health crisis in our communities,” said Adriene McCoy, senior vice president and chief human resources officer at Baptist Health. “We prioritize our staff’s overall well-being, so that they are able to feel and do their best and provide excellent care to the patients and families who depend on us.”
“Working parents and caregivers have had to shoulder so much responsibility throughout the pandemic, and our 100 Best Companies continue to offer support through their generous programs and benefits,” says Subha V. Barry, President of Seramount. “These companies have made the needs of their employees a priority, and we celebrate their commitment to creating an inclusive workplace culture where this critical talent pool can thrive.”
This year Seramount added specific questions about how organizations helped parents and caretakers with time off, flexible hours, and other benefits during COVID-19. There is a significant difference between the responses of companies that made the list and those that didn’t, showcasing how the 100 Best Companies pivoted to help working families.
