For 11th Consecutive Year: Methodist Health System Named Among North Texas’ Best Places to Work

6/19/14

For the eleventh consecutive year, the Dallas Business Journal recognized Methodist Health System as one of the Best Places to Work in North Texas. Methodist placed 6th in large businesses from 60 finalists in small, medium, and large companies across Dallas, Collin, Tarrant, Denton, and immediately adjacent counties.

Winning honorees and specific rankings were announced June 19 during an awards luncheon at the Fairmont Dallas Hotel and will be featured in a special edition of the publication. Additionally, Methodist was the highest ranked health system in the large business category and the only health system to place as a finalist for at least 11 years of the 12-year program.

“Being recognized for 11 years in a row as a best place to work is a tremendous accomplishment for our Methodist family,” says Methodist Health System President and CEO Stephen L. Mansfield, PhD, FACHE. “I believe this honor reflects our mission to not only serve our patients and their families, but to create and maintain a work environment that serves our most valued asset – our employees.”

Methodist employees voted their workplace as a 2014 Best Places to Work site through surveys conducted by the Dallas Business Journal in the regional employer recognition program. Participation is open to companies across Dallas, Collin, Tarrant, Denton, and immediately adjacent counties.

Selection is based on employee responses to surveys and hundreds of Methodist Health System employees voted in the competition by completing an extensive online survey. Surveys reflect topics such as work environment, innovations and new ideas, people practices, personal growth and development, leadership in the organization, employee recognition, and how things work day to day. Competition is divided into three different categories: small businesses (1-99 North Texas employees); mid-sized businesses (100-499 local employees); and large businesses (500 or more local employees).

To earn the prestigious designation, companies must meet or exceed a national best practice score for their category, as determined by an independent research company performing more than 5,000 company surveys across the country each year.

In May, Methodist was recognized as one of the 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare by Becker’s Hospital Review for the fourth year in a row.
