Forbes and Statista have named Augusta University to the second annual America’s Best-in-State Employers list for the second consecutive year.
Augusta University, with 6,500 employees, was the only employer headquartered in Augusta to make the list.
The respected financial magazine and the market research company teamed up to survey 80,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees. Surveys were conducted on a rolling basis from October 2019 to May 2020 and responses to the same employers were compared throughout the process to account for variations between data collected before and after the onset of the pandemic.
“Augusta University has some of the most talented and dedicated employees in the state of Georgia,” said President Brooks A. Keel, PhD. “We appreciate their hard work and dedication to providing the best care for our patients and students. We are honored that they appreciate us, as well, and are proud to be named to the Forbes’ Best-in-State Employers List for the second year in a row.”
Other companies to make the list in Georgia include Google, Lockheed Martin and the Department of Treasury, as well as the University of Georgia, Emory University, and Georgia State University. Click here for the full list.
