MORRISTOWN, NJ - Atlantic Health System has been named to Fortune Magazine's ‘Best Workplaces for Women’ list, marking the fourth year in a row the health care delivery system has earned this recognition from the national publication.
This recognition comes on the heels of Fortune naming Atlantic Health System one of its “100 Best Companies to Work For®,” for the tenth year in a row and being named a ‘Best Places to Work in Healthcare’ by Modern Healthcare magazine.
To compile 'The Best Workplaces for Women' list, Oakland, CA-based Great Places to Work Institute analyzed anonymous survey feedback representing more than 4.5 million US employees.
The majority of the ranking is based on what women themselves report in a 60-question Trust Index(tm) survey about their workplace, and how fairly those experiences compare to men’s reports of the same workplaces. Fifteen percent of the remaining rank is based on how well represented women are in the workforce and throughout management, taking into account industry trends.
To be considered, at a minimum, companies need to employ at least 50 women, at least 20% of their non-executive managers need to be female, and at least one of their executives needs to be female. To ensure survey results truly represent all employees, Great Place to Work requires that Trust Index survey results are accurate to a 95% confidence level with a 5% margin of error or better.
Atlantic Health System includes 16,500 employees, a network of 900 multidisciplinary physicians across the Atlantic Medical Group, six hospitals, multiple outpatient and ancillary facilities, and one of the largest Accountable Care Organizations in the nation.
