To accomplish this, we must be able to achieve one of our goals which is to be the Employer of Choice for current and future Mission Partners,” said Bob Sehring, CEO, OSF HealthCare. “Receiving this recognition for the fifth year in a row reinforces the great work being done across our Ministry in engaging, attracting, recruiting, and retaining those committed to our Mission.”

America's Best Employers by State 2023 were identified based on 2.1 million employer recommendations from employees working for companies with more than 500 employees in the United States. The recommended employers have been grouped into one of 25 industry sectors. Employers with operations in more than one state were ranked in multiple states.
The evaluation was made on a state-by-state basis and is based on three distinct criteria:
• In-State Indirect Recommendations: Participants were prompted to evaluate employers in their state that stand out either positively or negatively.
• National in-industry Indirect Recommendations: Participants were also prompted to evaluate other employers (nationally) in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively.
• Direct Recommendations: Employees were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family. Additionally, employees were asked to give their opinions on a series of statements surrounding work-related topics of working conditions, diversity, salary, potential for development, and company image regarding their current employer.
