LAWRENCE, MA – Lawrence General Hospital has earned a top spot on Forbes’ annual list of America’s Best-In-State Employers 2020. This prestigious award, announced on August 24, 2020, is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., and features organizations that are best liked by employees. The Forbes’ award for 2020 ranks Lawrence General as one of the top two Massachusetts employers, next to Boston Children’s Hospital.
Forbes and Statista selected America’s Best-in-State Employers based on an independent survey of approximately 80,000 U.S. employees from across various industries working for companies employing at least 500 people in their U.S. operations. The surveys were administered using a series of online panels and provide a representative sample of the U.S. workforce. Direct and indirect employee recommendations were evaluated on a state level.
The nationwide study assessed each company according to Atmosphere & Development, Company Image, Working Conditions, Salaries & Wages, and Diversity. The surveys were conducted on a rolling basis between October 2019 to May 2020; a time when Lawrence General Hospital was meeting the growing challenges of serving the coronavirus care needs of patients from across the Merrimack Valley. Based on the results of the study, Lawrence General Hospital is pleased to be recognized as one of Forbes’ annual list of America’s Best-In-State Employers 2020.
“I’m incredibly proud of the passion and dedication of the team here at Lawrence General Hospital and we’re honored to be recognized,” says Deborah J.
