ATLANTA, Sept. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Jackson Healthcare®, a family of highly specialized healthcare staffing, search and technology companies, today announced its inclusion on the newly-published “Best Workplaces for Women 2020” list from FORTUNE®. This is the second consecutive year the company has been included on the list of the nation’s top employers for women.
“We are honored to be recognized as a FORTUNE Best Workplace for Women for the second year in a row. Seventy percent of our associates are women, and women make up the majority of our leadership teams. The incredibly talented women in our company are a critical part of our ability to serve our customers with excellence,” says Shane Jackson, president of Jackson Healthcare and author of the book Fostering Culture: A Leader’s Guide to Purposefully Shaping Culture. “We are committed to ensuring that we are a best workplace for all of our associates, and I am beyond proud of our organization for earning this recognition.”
Best Workplaces lists are compiled by research and consulting firm Great Place to Work. This 2020 ranking involved the analysis of confidential survey feedback representing more than 4.7 million U.S. employees. Great Place to Work evaluated over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which an organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™ – for example, whether people trust each other and employees are able to reach their full human potential, no matter who they are or what they do. Eighty-five percent of the ranking is based on what women themselves report about their workplace, and how fairly those experiences compare to men’s reports of the same workplaces. The other 15 percent of the ranking is based on how well represented women are in the company’s workforce and throughout management, considering industry trends.
“Best workplaces like Jackson Healthcare are committed to addressing gender issues and evolving their behaviors and mindsets to narrow the gender gap,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “By creating an inclusive culture, Best Workplaces on this list see an increase in innovation regardless of gender, giving them a competitive advantage to thrive during these uncertain times.”
