Mayo Clinic named to Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For”

If you’ve spent much time in Rochester, you might be familiar with Mayo Clinic’s principal value: “The needs of the patient come first.” One of the reasons why Destination Medical Center was created is to ensure that the patient experience is positive, both inside and outside the walls of the clinic. But the individuals that make up the Mayo Clinic workforce – and put the patient needs ahead of their own – are what sets Rochester apart from other medical communities. But this week, Mayo Clinic was recognized for putting the needs of its employees high as well.

Take care of your employees and they’ll take care of you.

Every year, Fortune magazine publishes a list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For,” and for the 14th year in a row, Mayo Clinic has made the list. The rankings are based on the results of the Great Place to Work Institute’s employee trust survey, which evaluates companies on five factors: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

Overall, Mayo’s employees appear to be happy with their place of employment. Their responses to the survey landed the organization at #84 on the list (up two spots from 2016). Mayo offers employees competitive compensation programs and a multitude of perks, including fitness classes, discount ticket sales, and continuing education opportunities, to name a few.

“Each staff member makes Mayo Clinic a great place to work and a great place for people with serious and complex medical concerns to find solutions and healing,” says John Noseworthy, M.D., Mayo Clinic’s president and CEO. “We are deeply grateful for this recognition from Fortune because it directly reflects our team’s commitment to patients and to one other.”
