• MyMichigan Named to Forbes “America’s Best Employers By State” List

    MIDLAND, Mich.MyMichigan Health has been named to Forbes Magazine “America’s Best Employers By State” list. In conjunction with research firm Statista, Forbes conducted an anonymous survey of 70,000 Americans who work for companies of 500+ employees. MyMichigan Health came in second in Michigan and 31st overall out of 1,382 employers across the country, 262 of which were hospitals and health systems. This is the first time the Midland-based health system has been named to the list.

    “We are honored that Forbes included us on this list of best employers,” said Greg Rogers, president and CEO, MyMichigan Health. “The work environment has certainly changed in the last three years, particularly the health care industry. While some employees transitioned to remote work, others spent long hours on the front lines caring for patients or ensuring that their care environment is safe and comfortable. No matter how we pivoted, our employees have remained dedicated to serving our patients with excellence, teamwork, integrity and accountability. That is most definitely a commitment to which we all are proud.”
    Statista’s survey was anonymous, allowing participants to openly share their opinions. Respondents were asked, on a scale of zero to 10, how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others. In addition, participants were also asked to rate their employers on criteria including safety of the work environment, competitiveness of compensation, advancement opportunities and openness to telecommuting. In addition, the survey asked respondents to identify other employers they would recommend.

    “To be recognized as a Forbes best employer clearly demonstrates the workplace we have created and passionately maintain and grow here at MyMichigan Health,” said Julie Ward, senior vice president and chief human resources officer, MyMichigan Health. “We work hard each and every day to ensure our system remains the first and best choice, not just for our patients and the many communities we serve, but also for our very own employees.”
