For the sixth consecutive year, Fortune magazine has recognized St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by naming the hospital to its “100 Best Companies to Work For” list.
The annual list recognizes companies with exceptional workplace cultures that foster high employee morale and dedication. Companies choosing to participate in the selection process are graded based on employee surveys about their employer’s programs and practices.
According to this year’s survey, 94 percent of St. Jude employees believe the hospital is a “Great Place to Work” and 93 percent said they have pride in the work they do. St. Jude currently has more than 4,000 employees on its campus in the heart of Memphis.
“Regardless of title or position, every employee is essential to achieving our lifesaving mission,” said James R. Downing, MD, St. Jude President and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re fortunate to have such dedicated and compassionate people who commit their time, energy and talent each day to helping children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”
