In collaboration with the market research firm Statista, Forbes selected America’s Best Employers by surveying more than 50,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people in their U.S. operations. The surveys were administered in a series of online panels and provide a representative sample of the U.S. workforce.
In the survey, employees were asked their willingness to recommend their employer to friends and family. Employees were also asked to nominate other organizations besides their own, and to identify employers that they would not recommend to others.
This is UK HealthCare’s first appearance on the list. UK HealthCare is the hospitals and clinics of the University of Kentucky and employs more than 9,000 physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other health care professionals as well as support staff – all dedicated to providing the most advanced, most effective care available.
The University of Kentucky has also been recognized by Forbes on the Best Employers for Diversity list in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
