"Being a Best Company is really about how you help shape your
culture every day," said Dave Blom, president and CEO of
OhioHealth."It recognizes that we appreciate each other and that we all
make sure people can count on us. By working together to deliver
excellence and keep our patients first in everything we do - WE do
make a difference. That is at the heart of this recognition."
"It is a great honor to be selected once again as one of the
best workplaces in the nation," said Johnni Beckel, senior vice
president and Chief Human Resources Officer for OhioHealth."Unlike other awards, being selected as a Best Company relies
mostly on what OhioHealth associates say in the annual Great Place
to Work Trust Index© survey, which accounts for two-thirds of our
overall results and we are very proud of that."
Methodology - Trust Index + Culture
To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work
For, FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work
Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in
corporate America; 257 firms participated in this year's
More than 252,000 employees at those companies were surveyed by
the institute, a global research and consulting firm operating in
45 countries around the world.
Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the results of the
institute's Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of
employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to
their attitudes about management's credibility, job satisfaction,
The other third is based on responses to the institute's Culture
Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit
programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring
practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition
programs, and diversity efforts.
After evaluations are completed, if news about a company comes
to light that may significantly damage employees' faith in
management, we may exclude it from the list.
Any company that is at least five years old and has more than
1,000 U.S. employees is eligible. The deadline for applying for
next year's list is June 30, 2014.
