Forbes and Statista recently came together to create the inaugural list of Best-in-State Employers of 2019.
Augusta University, home to over 6,000 employees, ranked 44th in Georgia under the leadership of President Brooks Keel.
Based on an independent survey from a sample of over 80,000 U.S. employees currently working at companies that employ at least 500 people, the surveys asked employees to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family, and were asked to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively.
While Georgia has an impressive list of state employers, Augusta University is the only employer headquartered in Augusta to make Forbes’ list.
“This is a testament to our people and the culture that they’ve worked to cultivate for nearly 200 years,” said Augusta University President Brooks A. Keel, PhD. “Even as our university and health system continue to evolve, our employees’ devotion to our core mission endures. I’m inspired by their passion and honored by their commitment to our students, patients and their families.”
The complete list is posted on Forbes and can be separated by state.
