Mayo Clinic: One of FORTUNE Magazine's 100 Best Companies to Work For

In 2014, FORTUNE named Mayo Clinic to its 17th annual 100 Best Companies to Work For list. In its 11th consecutive year on the list, Mayo Clinic was ranked No. 53. The full list and related stories appear online at 100 Best Companies to Work For and in the print edition of FORTUNE available Jan. 20, 2014.

"We congratulate our employees for earning Mayo Clinic this distinction," says John H. Noseworthy, M.D., president and CEO of Mayo Clinic, adding, "Their bright minds and passionate service give Mayo Clinic its world reputation as a place of hope and solutions for patients. We have 60,000 individuals who link arms with one another to support our patients and their families."

This year, 257 companies and more than 252,000 employees participated in the list process. To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. Results of the survey are available at Great Rated!

Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the results of the institute's Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions about job satisfaction, camaraderie and management's credibility.

The other one-third of the score is based on the company's responses to the institute's Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs and diversity efforts.

FORTUNE is a global leader in business journalism with a worldwide circulation of more than 1 million and a readership of nearly 5 million, with major franchises including the FORTUNE 500 and the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For.
