MINEOLA, N.Y., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NYU Winthrop Hospital has been selected by Forbes magazine as one of their "America's Best Employers" for 2017. Out of the nation's 500 top employers, NYU Winthrop was ranked 18th overall.
This recognition highlights the hospital's commitment to building a culture that enables every employee to leverage their unique talents to eliminate the barriers between ideas and outcomes for patients. The full report is featured online at https://www.forbes.com/best-employers/list/#tab:rank.
"We are honored to be recognized by Forbes. It has always been our philosophy that if our physicians, nurses, entire medical staff and all of our other valued employees are happy and proud to work at NYU Winthrop, that this will translate into the highest quality medical care possible," said John Collins, President and CEO of NYU Winthrop. "We consider all who work at NYU Winthrop to be family, and this recognition underscores that the workplace environment that has long existed here has allowed each and every employee and medical professional to achieve their personal best. NYU Winthrop personnel like each other, respect each other and take care of each other which has created an environment that allows us to treat our patients like family. Patients sense this, and often remark about the unbelievable "caring" they experience at NYU Winthrop."
Working with online statistics provider Statista, Forbes asked more than 30,000 U.S. workers to determine, on a scale of zero to 10, how likely they were to recommend their employer to someone else. Further, how did they feel about the other employers in their industry?
The employees who took part in the survey were consulted anonymously through several online access panels. Their scores were analyzed using the net promoter score theory — and involved highly-selective criteria — to determine the company's eligibility and rank as one of America's Best Employers.
This year's list includes 500 employers across 25 industries ranging from hospitals to corporate giants to universities and government agencies.
