May 21, 2019 10:42AM

The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) has been ranked No. 267 out of 500 organizations on the Forbes 2019 list of America’s Best Large Employers. MUSC is one of only 22 organizations included in the Healthcare & Social category. This is the second time MUSC has appeared on this annual Forbes list, which pinpoints the companies liked best by employees.

“Employee engagement and satisfaction are critical elements in achieving any organization’s success in both the short term and long term,” said MUSC President David J. Cole, M.D., FACS. “This recognition is a valuable acknowledgment of our ongoing efforts to provide every employee with a work environment where they are supported, appreciated and part of positive, life-changing teams.”

Collaborating with market research firm Statista, Forbes surveyed more than 50,000 employees working at U.S. companies and organizations with at least 1,000 people. The survey was conducted with global digital data collection partners who use innovative technology and proven sampling methodologies to facilitate a deep understanding of consumer opinions and behavior. Participation in the survey was voluntary, and respondents were recruited from thousands of sources to maximize reach and representation.

The survey included more than 30 detailed questions about working conditions. In addition, the American employees were asked to determine, on a scale of zero to 10, how likely they were to recommend their employers to someone else. The survey also stratified workers’ responses on topics like innovation, remuneration, benefits, and atmosphere. Further, they were asked how they feel about the other employers in their respective industries. The mix of respondents (gender, age, region, and ethnicity) in the sample represents American employees.

The list is now live on the Forbes website.
