BRONX, N.Y., April 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Albert Einstein College of Medicine has been recognized by Forbes as one of the country's best midsize employers in 2019.
Forbes ranked Einstein in the top 200 overall nationally among midsize employers. Einstein ranked:
- 3rd within the education category in New York State
- 9th within the education category nationally, and
- 16th among all midsize employers with New York State headquarters
"This is very welcome news," said Gordon F. Tomaselli, M.D., the Marilyn and Stanley M. Katz Dean at Einstein. "This designation from Forbes confirms what we at Einstein already know: this is a wonderful place to work because of the colleagues we have the honor to work with."
"We are delighted and proud to be recognized as a top employer by Forbes," said Yvonne Ramirez, vice president of human resources and diversity at Einstein. "Einstein has a remarkable community, known for its collaborative spirit and supportive environment, and it's immensely gratifying to have that recognized."
Forbes selected America's Best Employers based on an independent online anonymous survey of a diverse group of more than 50,000 full- and part-time employees of midsize and large companies employing at least 1,000 people in their U.S. operations. The survey, administered in collaboration with the analytics firm, Statista, covered 25 industry sectors, including utilities, automotive, insurance, and retail. Overall scores were based on a combination of two elements: employees' willingness, on a rating scale of 0 -10, to recommend their employer to friends or family members and their willingness to recommend other employers in their respective industries to acquaintances.
The survey also included 35 questions about work-related topics, including salary, potential for development, and working conditions. Final scores were calculated for more than 2,700 employers; Forbes created ranking lists of the top 500 midsize and top 500 large employers.
