Cerner Named to Forbes 2016 America's Best Employers List
March 23, 2016
Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, today announced that it has been named to Forbes magazine's 2016 list of America’s Best Employers. Cerner ranked No. 307 out of 500 companies. This is the second consecutive year Cerner was named to the list.
"It’s an honor for Cerner to be recognized once again as a best employer in America," said Julie Wilson, executive vice president and chief people officer. "For more than 35 years, we’ve been committed to changing health care through innovative solutions. Our associates experience this vision firsthand, through things like our on-site clinics, focus on preventive health management and effectively managing the cost of care. This approach enables us to attract associates and build teams across Cerner with the best talent in our industry, in communities across the country and around the world.”
The top employers comprising the list were chosen by Forbes based on an independent survey conducted by Statista.com. The survey included more than 20,000 American employees working for large U.S. companies and institutions, and U.S. divisions of international firms with at least 2,500 workers in the U.S. Respondents were asked anonymously through several online panels how likely they would be to recommend their employer, or any other employer in their industry, to a potential employee. The respondents mirrored the gender, age, region, educational level, and ethnicity of the overall U.S. workforce. More than 3,500 companies were represented in the survey, with Forbes creating a list of the top 500 firms for their April 2016 issue.
