Baptist Health of Northeast Florida has been named one of Florida's best employers by Forbes magazine. In its annual "America's Best Employers by State 2021" list, Baptist Health is ranked No. 1 among all ranked employers in Jacksonville in any industry, and No. 10 among all 100 ranked companies in Florida.
Further, Baptist Health ranked No. 3 among all ranked health care providers in the state, and was the only North Florida health care provider among the top three.
The award methodology was based on surveys of Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees who were asked to rate their employers on various criteria, including workplace safety, competitive compensation, advancement opportunities, and openness to telecommuting. Surveys were anonymous, allowing participants to respond freely. The final list ranked 1,328 employers who received the greatest number of recommendations in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia (D.C.). Then it was broken down into the top 100 companies in each state and D.C. Forbes partnered with Statista, Inc., a global market research firm, to compile the annual list.
"To be recognized as a best employer speaks to the quality of our employees and their commitment to our patients, our community and one another," said Michael A. Mayo, DHA, FACHE, president and CEO of Baptist Health. "This recognition is very affirming for us as we place a high priority on attracting and retaining the best employees."
