The Philadelphia Business Journal has named Main Line Health as a Gold Winner in the Extra Large Company category of its 2014 Best Places to Work competition. The official rankings were announced in an awards ceremony on October 9 at the Wells Fargo Center. This is the eighth year that Main Line Health has received a Best Places to Work award and the first time selected as a Gold Winner.
A key part of the Best Places to Work selection was Main Line Health employees’ responses in an anonymous survey regarding the experience the health system delivers to patients and each other, the work environment and benefits.
“Year after year, Main Line Health has been recognized among the leaders in this category, but this is the first time Main Line Health has come home with the gold,” said Human Resources Senior Vice President Paul Yakulis. “It’s a reflection—not simply of our official programs—but of the continuous and increasing efforts of Main Line Health staff throughout the system to create an environment that prioritizes safety, respects diversity, and finds fun ways to engage colleagues in important initiatives.”
Main Line Health and other winners will also be honored in a special section of the Philadelphia Business Journal.
