Medline: a Forbes 2023 Best Employer for New Grads

Medline again has been named among Forbes “Best Employers for New Grads” list, ranking among the top third of more than 300 U.S. companies that young professionals say “offer superior workplace opportunities” and “align with their values.”

The list was compiled based on survey results from 28,000 young and early career professionals in the U.S. working for business with at least 1,000 employees. Respondents were asked to rate their employers in areas such as reputation, salary and benefits; education and career advancement opportunities; working hours and atmosphere; quality of work; diversity, equity and inclusion; whether good performance is recognized and whether they would recommend their employer to friends and family. Survey respondents also were asked to evaluate other employers within the industry.

“Medline really empowers new employees. It’s a great place for new grads to have a lot of responsibility and make an impact right away.”
