SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., June 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- FDB (First Databank, Inc.), the leading provider of drug and medical device knowledge that helps healthcare professionals make precise decisions, announced today it has been named a Top Workplace for 2021 in central Indiana by The Indianapolis Star Top Workplaces awards program. This is the fifth consecutive year FDB has been honored as a Top Workplace in this regional evaluation and the sixth time the company has been recognized with the award.
FDB is one of just 89 companies and organizations of all sizes in central Indiana selected by The Indianapolis Star as Top Workplaces for 2021. While headquartered in South San Francisco, Calif., FDB has offices in Indianapolis, Ind., and globally in the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates and India.
The Indianapolis Star Top Workplaces list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 employee engagement culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization. These include alignment, execution, and connection.
This year employees at Indianapolis Star Top Workplaces gave their companies high marks for responding to employees' and customers' concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. Honorees demonstrated flexibility, cooperation, and business strength throughout 2020.
"During this challenging time, Top Workplaces have proven to be beacons of light for organizations, as well as signs of resiliency and strong business performance," said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. "When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business."
"FDB is excited to have been selected as an Indianapolis Star Top Workplace for central Indiana for the fifth year in a row," said FDB President Bob Katter. "We thank our employees for their dedication to FDB and to our mission—delivering the world's most trusted drug and medical device knowledge to help healthcare providers make better decisions. This year's award is even more meaningful because it is a testament to our resiliency as a company and to the commitment of our entire FDB team to help each other and our customers successfully meet the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic."
"We've kept our workplace culture vibrant and our motivation high by maintaining the high level of quality of our existing content and solutions, and by adding content specifically focused on COVID-19 diagnostics, treatments, and vaccines," Katter said. "We offered this content at no cost to all healthcare providers, including our customers, during the pandemic."
