Northwell Health named one of Glassdoor’s best 100 places to work
At Northwell Health, we’re committed to creating careers well cared for and fostering a culture that makes our 75,000+ team members love coming to work. That’s why we’re proud to announce we’ve been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, ranking among the 100 best companies in the nation to work for in 2021.
To determine winners of this award, Glassdoor looks not to nominations but instead directly to the people who work there. Winners are chosen based on the feedback offered voluntary and anonymously on their site, one of the largest job and recruiting sites in the world. Reviews range from topics such as leadership, the job itself, benefits, work environments and more.
We’re so grateful to our team members for sharing their valuable feedback that helped us receive this award. It is their commitment to the communities we serve that makes us a best place to work.
“This award is truly a significant achievement for Northwell Health and is a testament to our dedicated 75,000 employees,” said Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health. “For nearly a year our entire workforce has banded together to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, with our team making significant sacrifices of themselves and their families to treat the 128,000 coronavirus patients to date at our facilities throughout the region. It is remarkable that the health system and its employees would be recognized with a Best Place to Work award during these unprecedented times.”
In addition to the positive feedback that has led to our company rating of 4.3 out of 5, with 5 being the highest score, constructive comments help us to further grow and develop programs that our team members need. Northwell is committed to ensuring our benefits and culture grow alongside our organization. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve provided a special bank of time off to frontline workers and other staff members to use as needed.
Additionally, in support of their well-being, we created tranquil spaces at hospitals for team members to take a moment to rest and recharge outside of the clinical setting. Recognition of their tireless work was never more important and team members, first responders and community members alike organized grand clap outs to thank our team members and keep morale up.
Along with well-being support, development support was just as essential. In 2020, we launched a new human resources platform that created processes that will help team members to continue to grow and develop professionally through conversations with their management and increased internal mobility.
The Glassdoor recognition follows a series of accolades Northwell has received, each aimed at employee recognition, workplace safety and trust and leadership. Recently, Northwell was:
- Named to Fortune’s Best Places to Work in Health Care, ranking as the highest-rated health system in the New York Metro area
- One of 10 health systems in the country to receive Press Ganey’s Pinnacle of Excellence in employee engagement.
- Recognized as one of America’s 100 Best Workplaces for Diversity by Fortune, placing 69th for creating inclusive cultures for women, different cultural and ethnic communities, the LGBTQIA+ community, older employees and workers with disabilities
- Acknowledged as one of the nation’s top health systems — and No. 1 in New York State — by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2020 Healthcare Equality Index (HEI), which measures inclusiveness of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community at large
