In 2013, FORTUNE named Mayo Clinic to its 16th annual 100 Best Companies to Work For list. In its 10th consecutive year on the list, Mayo Clinic was ranked No. 41. The full list and related stories appear online at 100 Best Companies to Work For and in the print edition of FORTUNE available Jan. 21, 2013.
"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."
"And we do mean every one of those 60,000 individuals changes lives at Mayo Clinic," says Shirley A. Weis, Mayo Clinic vice president and chief administrative officer. "There is a saying here that if you are not directly delivering patient care, you are helping someone who does. We tell our employees that they are 'the power of one' times 60,000. We hope they take great pride in this '100 Best' national recognition."
On its 100 Best website, FORTUNE includes Mayo Clinic as one of the social media superstars on the 2013 list.
This year, 259 companies and more than 277,000 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.
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.
