Sanford Health recognized by Becker’s as a top place to work

For the second year in a row, Sanford Health has been named to the list of Becker’s Healthcare 150 top places to work.

According to Becker’s, the health systems and companies included on this list are top-tier employers that prioritize workplace excellence, invest in professional development, offer well-being programs and wellness benefits and give back to the communities they serve. The list also honors health care organizations committed to advocating for diversity in the workplace, promoting work-life balance and boosting employee engagement.

“This honor is a testament to our people. Their tireless dedication to our patients and communities across America’s heartland is embodied in our workplace culture,” said Bill Gassen, president and CEO of Sanford Health. “We also recognize that investing in the well-being of our caregivers leads to better patient care, better quality outcomes, higher patient satisfaction and better retention and recruitment.”

Sanford Health, along with its senior care division, the Good Samaritan Society, has more than 44,000 employees in 17 states and nine countries dedicated to patient care. The health care system ranks in the top 25% among peers in the health care industry for meaningful work and inclusiveness as a strength based on employee experience survey results.

Diversity, equity and inclusion continues to be a top goal for Sanford Health, and the system has made strides with diversity councils, employee resource groups and military support. The Becker’s honor also recognizes Sanford’s competitive compensation and salary increases for its employees.

The Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team accepted nominations for this list. The team also assessed rankings and awards from reputable organizations such as Forbes. In 2023, Sanford Health was named to Forbes America’s Best Employers for Veterans list and the America’s Best Employers By State list. Most recently, Sanford Health was recognized on Fortune’s Most Innovative Companies 2024 list.
