Medline Named a 2019 Chicago Tribune Top Workplace

Honor marks ninth time global healthcare company is recognized for top employer award

By Medline Newsroom Staff | November 8, 2019

For the ninth year, Medline today announced it has been awarded a Top Workplaces honor by the Chicago Tribune.

The list of Chicagoland’s top employers is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. Employees selected at random provide feedback on several aspects of workplace culture.

With more than 700 new hires in the Chicago area alone, this has helped to catapult the total employee count to more than 24,000 worldwide.  The company is deeply committed to finding new ways to engage employees across all functions and even generations to ensure they understand how they each play a vital role in improving healthcare.

“It is a tremendous honor to receive this award again. Our employees are the driving force of our business and growth,” says Karen Ferraro, chief human resources officer, Medline. “We know it is their tireless dedication to our customers’ needs that has fueled our success. For that reason, we take to heart the feedback we continually collect and use employee input to improve our workplace culture. We are thrilled these efforts position Medline once again as one of the most desired Chicagoland employers.”

A recent company survey of Medline employees across the globe revealed that employees rank the company high for its focus on diversity and inclusion, career development opportunities and ability to create an environment that supports productivity.
