Two Utah Companies Named to Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For

Salt Lake City – Two Utah companies, CHG Healthcare and O.C. Tanner, were honored as part of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For. CHG ranks No. 18 on the list, which recognizes companies that have exceptional workplace cultures. This is the seventh straight year that CHG has made the list.

O.C. Tanner was honored for the second consecutive year and was ranked No. 61. The list also included 29 companies that utilize O.C. Tanner’s products.

“We’re honored to once again be recognized as one of the nation’s best workplaces,” says Scott Beck, CEO of CHG Healthcare Service. “It’s our people who make CHG a great place to work. Their dedication to our core values and the work they do each day makes a meaningful difference in our communities and in the lives of the healthcare providers we serve — and ultimately the patients these providers help. That’s what our culture is all about.”

Each year, hundreds of companies apply for this recognition, which requires an anonymous employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about company programs and practices. Applications are evaluated based on a company’s credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

“Culture starts with listening to your people and then making improvements based on their feedback,” Beck says. “When you give employees a voice, they take ownership in the culture and make it even stronger.”

CHG is committed to its core value of Putting People First and ensures all company decisions are made with the best interests of the employees in mind. The result is an atmosphere of respect, caring, support, and fun. Employees feel free to be themselves and are passionate about the work they do.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to make Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list for the second year in a row. We love the acknowledgement, but what we love even more is that it’s our people that make it happen,” said O.C. Tanner CEO Dave Petersen. “At O.C. Tanner we take great pride in helping companies across the globe become great places to work, and for us that expertise starts with ensuring our company is a great place to work.”

Fortune ranks companies for its 100 Best Companies to Work For list by surveying a sample of their employees with topics ranging from management’s credibility and overall job satisfaction to pay, benefit and recognition programs.

“We have some of the best people in the world working on some of the most innovative and creative projects. This recognition is representative of them and our culture,” said Matt Burton, O.C. Tanner Director of People and Great Work. “At our core, we value, recognize, and appreciate, the great work being done at O.C. Tanner and at companies everywhere.”
