Posted on: January 16, 2019

Forbes and Statista ranked Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare (MLH) on its 2019 list of Best Employers for Diversity. MLH made the list at 175 out of 500 employers.

“We believe that an inclusive and diverse workforce is core to our vision to improve every life we touch,” said Carol Ross‐Spang, chief human resources officer, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare. “People from different backgrounds bring unique perspectives that together enable us to be at our best for those we serve. ”

The top 500 best employers in the country for diversity were chosen based on an independent survey from a representative sample of 50,000 employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people in their U.S. operations. For the majority of the company’s score, respondents were asked open-ended questions on a series of statement surrounding the topics of age, gender, equality, ethnicity, disability, LGBTTQ+ and general diversity concerning their employer.

The rankings were aggregated using four criteria: direct recommendations, indirect recommendations, diversity among top executives/board members, and diversity KPIs.
