Phoebe Putney Health System appears on the prestigious list of the best employers in Georgia, as compiled byForbes.  “Phoebe is undoubtedly an outstanding place to work, and we are proud the experts at Forbes recognized our continual efforts to create a rewarding and nurturing work environment for members of the Phoebe Family,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe President & CEO.  “Patient safety is our top priority, and we know engaged and fulfilled healthcare workers provide safe, quality care,” Steiner added.
Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to survey 50,000 American workers and pinpoint the organizations liked best by employees.  It is the magazine’s first-ever ranking of America’s best employers by state.  The final list ranks 1,430 employers that received the greatest number of recommendations in the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Phoebe is number 31 on Georgia’s list of best employers which includes 56 employers in the state.  “We work hard to recruit and retain outstanding employees at every level of our organization, and we are committed to providing a comprehensive package of benefits for our employees that equals or exceeds what workers will find at many of the best, large employers in this country,” said Tony Welch, Phoebe Chief Human Resources Officer.
Many of the employers on Georgia’s list are not based in Georgia but simply employ workers in the state.  For example, the company at the top of Georgia’s ranking is California-based Google.  In addition to Phoebe, Georgia-based organizations on the list include Home Depot, Chick-fil-A and Georgia Pacific.
“It is an honor for Phoebe to be mentioned alongside those large employers that are well-known for providing outstanding customer service and for treating their employees well,” Steiner said.  “For more than a century, Phoebe has not only provided cutting-edge, compassionate healthcare, but we have been a vital part of the economy of southwest Georgia.  We pledge to continue to serve our patients well, grow our role as a good corporate citizen and provide an outstanding workplace for every member the Phoebe Family.”
