LAFAYETTE, La., June 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LHC Group has been named to the inaugural Forbes list of “America’s Best-in-State Employers 2019” – ranking No. 4 on the list of employers from the state of Louisiana. The list is based on an independent survey conducted by Forbes and partner market research company Statista.
According to Forbes, the survey was conducted from October 2018 to February 2019 and included approximately 80,000 part- and full-time workers at companies with at least 500 employees in their U.S. operations. Forbes and Statista partnered in this initiative “to pinpoint the organizations liked best by employees in our first-ever ranking of America’s best employers by state.”
Evaluation was based on two main criteria:
Direct score: Willingness to recommend one’s own employer – employees were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family.
Indirect score: Willingness to recommend other employers – participants were prompted to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively.
Employees were also asked about topics such as working conditions, salary, potential for development, and company image.
“It’s an extraordinary honor to be recognized as an employer of choice by respected organizations like Forbes and Statista,” said Keith Myers, LHC Group chairman and CEO. “Our company was founded upon and remains motivated by a special set of core cultural concepts that resonate throughout our organization. The same principles, tenants, culture, and focus on families and communities that helped position LHC Group as a Forbes 2019 Best-in-State Employer in Louisiana can be found at each and every one of our 750-plus locations across the country.”
