Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare Named One of 25 Best Hospitals and Health Systems for Female Employees According to Forbes

Posted on: August 07, 2018

Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare was recently named to Forbes list of the 300 Best Employers for Women and is among only 25 hospitals and health systems included on list.

For this first-ever ranking of America’s best employers for women, Forbes partnered with research firm Statista, which surveyed more than 40,000 employees, including 25,000 women, at companies with at least 1,000 employees throughout the United States.

Respondents were asked to rate their companies criteria including diversity, how likely they were to recommend their employer to others and working conditions.

Researchers reviewed responses for potential gender gaps, taking into account, for example, whether women rated an organization poorly for diversity while men rated it highly.

Female respondents were also asked to rate their employers on factors such as discrimination, parental leave and pay equity.

The respondents were then asked to nominate organizations outside the industries they worked in. Forbes' final list includes the 300 employers that both received the most recommendations and have the most gender-diverse boards and executives.
