The Northeast Georgia Health System was recently ranked among the top 15 employers in Georgia by Forbes magazine.
“To be recognized as one of Georgia’s Best Employers by Forbes Magazine is an honor and privilege,” Carol Burrell, CEO for Northeast Georgia Health System, said in a news release Thursday. “Here at NGHS, our employees and patients come first.”
NGHS employs over 8,000 people in Hall County.
“Our organization continuously strives to provide fair pay, safe working conditions, inclusive culture, diversity initiatives and more,” Burrell said. “We have learned to work together through the challenges and difficulties of the past few years, which is why I am so proud to see us recognized as one of America’s Best Employers.”
Forbes, in collaboration with market research company Statista, surveyed 70,000 employees working for businesses with more than 500 employees.
Respondents were asked to rate their employers on a variety of criteria, including safety of work environment, competitiveness of compensation, opportunities for advancement and openness to telecommuting.
