Forbes released their Best Employers by State list for 2020, and Texas Children’s ranked #53 among the top 100 companies to work for in Texas.
“This is a tremendous testament to the culture that we have created at Texas Children’s. This recognition is the doing of our entire team – executives, in-chiefs, employees, and medical staff – as it is the work ethic and respect you all hold for one another that creates this positive working environment,” said Texas Children’ President and CEO Mark A. Wallace. “As you know more than anyone, this culture wasn’t created overnight but has been decades in the making, and I couldn’t be prouder of who we are and what we do.”
Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to measure the leading employers around the country and the world by asking those in the best position: the workers. The list is divided into 51 rankings – one for each of the 50 states, plus the District of Columbia – and was compiled by surveying 80,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees. Participants across the country ranked organizations based on responses in several categories including recommended places to work, overall image, compensation and opportunity for advancement.
As you may recall, Texas Children’s Hospital was also recognized by Forbes last year as one of America’s best employers and ranked Texas Children’s No. 276 among the best 500 large companies in the nation; Texas Children’s was one of 25 health care organizations on the list, and one of only three in Texas and Houston. And in 2018 Texas Children’s was ranked No. 11 among the best 300 companies in the nation – and the best in Houston on its first-ever ranking of America’s best employers for women.
