The 15 'Best Companies to Work For' in health care, according to Fortune


Fortune on Monday released its 2021 list of the "100 Best Companies to Work For," and 15 health care companies made the list.

The 8 key traits of a 'Best Place to Work'

About the list

Since 1998, Fortune and Great Place to Work have partnered to produce the annual rankings.

According to Fortune and Great Place to Work, this year's process paid special attention to how employees' experiences varied based on their job role, gender, race/ethnicity, payroll status, and other characteristics. Accordingly, Fortune and Great Place to Work changed the methodology for the list to account for these areas of focus.

Specifically, Fortune analyzed essays from each company on the actions they took in response to the challenges of 2020, and it collected more than 100 data points on employee demographics and HR programs and practices. Fortune then weighted 40% of each company's score on how the company supported their people and communities.

To determine the remaining 60% of the score, Great Place to Work conducted confidential surveys of more than 500,000 employees asking how trustworthy, caring, and fair their companies are in times of crises; how employees' physical, emotional, and financial health were faring; and the company's broader community impact.

Ultimately, Cisco was named as the No. 1 overall company to work for on this year's list.
