Employees Rate Sutter as one of the Best in Latest Forbes Poll
Employees across Sutter Health hold the network in high regard, according to the latest list by Forbes. In its second annual ranking of America’s best employers by state, Sutter Health was listed as one of California’s top employers.
“Sutter Health appreciates our entire workforce and how they help enhance the health and well-being of our communities,” said Jill Ragsdale, chief people and culture officer for Sutter Health. “Our teams live our values every day. With caring and compassion, they support patients and families, as well as each other.”
Using anonymous surveys, Forbes and market research company Statista verified the best-liked organizations by employees. Determining factors included potential for development, working conditions, diversity, salary, etc. Employees were also asked to rate on a scale from 1-10 whether they would recommend working for their employer to others.
This ranking takes special significance this year. Surveys took place from Oct. 2019 – May 2020, a portion of time that included the COVID-19 pandemic hitting stateside. Healthcare providers were facing challenges not seen before in their lifetimes. In response, Sutter identified resources that helped compassionately support the needs of staff. These creative solutions include offering temporary lodging around hospitals where staff may be relocated to support, retraining for staff asked to care for patients in other parts of the network, child care options close to work, self-care and mental health support, and remote work help.
Sutter Health was recently named one of 22 healthcare systems on Forbes’ 2020 list of “America’s Best Employers for Women.” Sutter ranked on Forbes list of California employers in 2019, too.
