As an organization dedicated to the well-being of both patients and the employees committed to their care, Cleveland Clinic is proud to announce it has been named one of the country’s Best Workplaces in Health Care.
Cleveland Clinic ranked No. 17 on the list, which is based on surveys from nearly 88,000 employees across the industry. The results demonstrate that Cleveland Clinic employees enjoy a supportive work environment with effective communication and trust in leadership. They also expressed widespread pride in their work, which reflects Cleveland Clinic’s commitment to patient care.
“We believe our employees perform best in a workplace where they are appreciated, supported and encouraged to succeed,” said Toby Cosgrove, M.D., Cleveland Clinic President and CEO. “We care about our caregivers and strive to continually listen to their feedback and develop programs and resources that support them, from career development opportunities to our total rewards program. Our caregivers come to work every day with a purpose – to put patients first – and we are proud of them and the work they do.”
Research by Great Place to Work has shown that a high-trust workplace culture benefits not only individual performance but the success of the organization overall. The leading health care workplaces outperformed their peers in a number of important areas, such as training, compensation, clear expectations from management and the emotional health of their workplaces. The top-ranked workplaces are also positive, supportive places, with an average of 93 percent of their employees describing colleagues as friendly and welcoming.
The Best Workplaces in Health Care is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based on employee survey feedback from Great Place to Work–Certified organizations.
