The 2018 FORTUNE Best Workplaces in Health Care and BioPharma Successfully Adapt to Rapidly Changing Industry

SAN FRANCISCO, April 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A strong sense of purpose and lived-out values are key features of the best health care workplaces, according to the 2018 Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE Best Workplaces in Health Care and BioPharma.

In fact, 88 percent of employees in the best health care workplaces say their work isn't "just a job" but has special meaning. Nearly 9 in 10 employees at these companies describe their leaders as honest and ethical, and as a result, their employees are 5 times more likely to report an agile workforce around them.

In making today's announcement Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work said, "Leaders in the best health care workplaces know how to ground their people in values that allow them to adapt in a quickly changing industry filled with an uncertain regulatory environment, the rise of evidence-based, personalized medicine, and higher expectations from consumers about their care. These strong values include honesty, ethical behavior, clarity of purpose and pride-- the strongest driver of organizational agility. When health care staffers are proud of their workplace, they are nine times more likely to say their co-workers are adaptable to changes."
