Methodist Health System Named Among North Texas’ Best Places to Work for 9th Consecutive Year
For the ninth consecutive year, the Dallas Business Journal recognized Methodist Health System as one of the Best Places to Work in North Texas. Methodist placed 8th in large businesses from a total of 410 nominees and a total of 53 finalists in small, medium, and large companies across Dallas, Collin, Tarrant, Denton, and immediately adjacent counties.
Winning honorees and specific rankings were announced on Sept. 27 during a gala awards luncheon in Dallas and are featured in a special edition of the publication. Additionally, Methodist is also one of four workplaces and the only medical organization to earn special honors for placing among
the recognition program’s finalists or top honorees for at least nine years of the 10 years of the program.
“This recognition for workplace excellence is a proud accomplishment for our employee family,” says Methodist Health System President and CEO Stephen L. Mansfield, PhD, FACHE. “Methodist is honored to be named as one of the Best Places to Work in North Texas for the ninth consecutive year. The recognition reflects our mission to not only serve our patients and their families, but to create and maintain a work environment that serves our most valued asset –our employees.”
Methodist employees voted their workplace as a 2012 Best Places to Work site through surveys conducted by the Business Journal in the regional employer recognition program. Participation is open to companies across Dallas, Collin, Tarrant, Denton, and immediately adjacent counties.
"We firmly believe that every day and every year, Methodist is a great place to work and also a great place to serve," says Dr. Mansfield.
Selection is based on employee responses to surveys and hundreds of Methodist Health System employees voted in the competition by completing an extensive online survey. Surveys reflect topics such as work environment, innovations and new ideas, people practices, personal growth and development, leadership in the organization, employee recognition, and how things work day to day. Competition is divided into three different categories: small businesses (1-99 North Texas employees); mid-sized businesses (100-499 local employees); and large businesses (500 or more local employees).
To earn the prestigious designation, companies must meet or exceed a national best practice score for their category, as determined by an independent research company performing more than 5,000 company surveys across the country each year.
In April, Methodist was recognized as one of the 100 Great Places to Work in Healthcare by Becker’s Hospital Review and Becker’s ASC Review for the second year in a row.
