Parkview Health named to Newsweek’s list of Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces for 2023

FORT WAYNE, IND. – OCT. 3, 2023 – Parkview Health was named to Newsweek’s list of Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces for 2023, being recognized for its outstanding employee sentiment and satisfaction.

Parkview is the only workplace in Indiana to make the national recognition list for 2023. This is the first time Parkview has made Newsweek’s highly selective and competitive listing.

The 2023 Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces® are the result of a collaboration with the Best Practice Institute (BPI), a leadership development and benchmark research company. BPI previously recognized Parkview on its own Most Loved Workplaces list in July.

Results for this year’s list were determined after surveying more than 2 million employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 100,000 co-workers. The list recognizes companies that have created a workplace where co-workers feel respected, inspired and appreciated, and are at the center of the business model. 

“Once again, we’re humbled to be recognized as one of the nation’s Most Loved Workplaces,” said Rick Henvey, CEO, Parkview Health. “At Parkview, we’ve built a culture of excellence to ensure our co-workers are well supported and able to grow, allowing them to provide the best quality care to the patients they treat and the families they serve. As we continue to seek out new talent to join our team, awards like Newsweek’s Most Loved Workplaces help prove that Parkview is a place where they can thrive.”

“Our obsession with creating the best workplace culture has led to incredible recognitions, such as this one from Newsweek,” said Dena Jacquay, chief administrative officer, Parkview Health. “We have immense pride in the work of our more than 15,000 co-workers who focus every day on delivering excellence. Those highly engaged co-workers go on to produce high-quality care for our patients in northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio.”

The largest employer in the region, Parkview Health regularly solicits feedback from its co-workers about their job satisfaction, loyalty and engagement. This year, Parkview launched its first-ever companywide culture survey to continue gathering insight and better support co-workers with the tools needed to succeed in their daily activities, growth and development. The survey indicated that more than 90% of co-workers agreed they were proud to work for Parkview.

A few Parkview co-workers recently shared their praise:

“I really enjoy my job at Parkview,” said Kristy Scheer, coding specialist, Parkview Physicians Group. “I’ve never been treated better through all my years of working. I’m proud to tell people that I work for Parkview, and how they continually care for their employees. I feel valued and like I am a real part of the team.”

“I am so thankful to work at a place like Parkview,” said Jill Hitzeman, RN, Endoscopy, Parkview Regional Medical Center. “I can’t say thank you enough for all the things they do for their teams. I am Parkview Proud!”

Parkview has been frequently recognized as both a great place for its co-workers as well as a top pick for patients. This year alone, Parkview has been recognized among the Best & Brightest In Wellness by the National Association for Business Resources, was selected as the top medium-sized healthcare system for patient excellence by NRC Health, and was recently ranked among the top 10 in Indiana on Forbes’ Best-in-State Employers list.

Newsweek’s analysis is based on how well companies demonstrate the areas within the SPARK Model as defined by BPI. SPARK stands for Systemic collaboration, Positive vision of the future, Alignment of values, Respect and Killer achievement. Employee sentiments and emotions indicating how engaged employees are, how positive they feel about their workplace, and how committed they are to the organization’s success were analyzed to identify the Top 100 Most Loved Workplaces. 

To identify the top 100 companies for the Newsweek ranking, companies were evaluated and scored based on employee survey responses, analysis of external public ratings from sites such as Comparably, Careerbliss, Glassdoor, Indeed and Google, and interviews with and written responses from company officials. Newsweek then conducted additional research into every company on the list, as well as the top runners up, to determine the final list of 100 companies and their ranking.

“With the rapidly changing workplace and competition for top talent, more companies are recognizing the importance of employee engagement and commitment”, said Nancy Cooper, global editor in chief, Newsweek. “The workplaces that have demonstrated a commitment to their employees in 2023 are more likely to attract the best talent and deliver strong business outcomes.”

"Fully understanding and acting upon employee sentiment, emotion and recommendations continues to be a challenge and top priority of executive leadership,” said Louis Carter, CEO of Best Practice Institute. “The companies on this list have committed to listening carefully to their employees to create a workplace employees love.”
