ST. PAUL, Minn., Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Prime Therapeutics (Prime), a leading pharmacy benefit manager, has been named one of America's Top Workplaces by WorkplaceDynamics. Prime captured the No. 83 spot among 872 organizations nationwide with more than 1,000 employees that participated in regional top workplaces programs. Prime was recognized among the best in company leadership, growth potential, work-life balance and competitive compensation.
"Prime Therapeutics is a rare combination of a fast growing business, unwavering dedication to our members, and highly engaged employees," said Eric Elliott, president and CEO of Prime Therapeutics. "We've built a workplace culture that encourages personal growth, supports innovative thinking, rewards accountability, and helps employees use their unique skills to become passionate advocates for our members. People are our priority."
The National Top Workplaces list was determined solely by feedback gathered through an objective employee survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, an employee survey provider, in conjunction with 30 leading regional newspapers. Prime ranked No. 19 on Star Tribune's Top Workplaces list for Minnesota, published in June 2012.
The survey uses a proprietary set of questions to rank companies. The survey data showed that employees most want to work at companies with high levels of organizational health. Companies that set a clear direction for their future, execute well, and bring real meaning to work are the healthiest.
