Forbes Names OSF HealthCare One of America’s Best-In-State Employers
OSF HealthCare has been recognized as part of Forbes’ annual list of America’s Best-In-State Employers for 2020. The awards list was announced on August 24, 2020, and can currently be viewed on the Forbes website.
OSF HealthCare employs nearly 24,000 Mission Partners (employees) in 145 locations, including 14 hospitals throughout Illinois and Michigan.
CEO Bob Sehring says the recognition is a reflection of the efforts by OSF HealthCare leaders and Mission Partners to provide a safe, healthy and productive work environment, based on mutual trust and respect.
“To receive recognition from Forbes as a best-in-state employer is extremely rewarding,” said Bob Sehring, CEO, OSF HealthCare. “This is a testament to the work members of our leadership team put in, connecting with our Mission Partners to ensure that they know how much they are valued as we all carry out the Sisters’ Mission to serve with the greatest care and love.”
To come up with the list, Forbes teamed up with market research company Statista to survey more than 80,000 U.S. employees working for companies with at least 500 employees in their U.S. operations. The online panels were then evaluated on a state level.
Participants were asked about an employer’s atmosphere and development, company image, working conditions, salaries and wages, and diversity.
