TigerText – a leading vendor of secure messaging solutions for the healthcare industry – has been voted one of the best places to work in healthcare in 2015.
Each year, Modern Healthcare assesses companies in the healthcare sector and compiles a nationally recognized list of businesses that empower employees to offer both customers and patients the highest levels of services, the best products and exceptional levels of support and care. Suppliers, providers and payers are included in the yearly honors list, which includes the top 100 healthcare employers from across the United States.
The magazine has been compiling an annual list of the best places to work in healthcare for 8 years. The lists recognizes companies in every healthcare sector for the efforts made to improve the workplace and create the ideal environment where employees can flourish.
As part of the assessment process, the magazine sends out employer benefits and policies questionnaires, and asks employees in those companies to complete an employee engagement survey. The results of those surveys are assessed and used to compile what is widely regarded as the most comprehensive and accurate list of the best places to work in healthcare for workers who seek employment.
