The survey pinpointed organizations liked best by employees in each state.

LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY Sept. 15, 2021 – Baptist Health has been ranked in the top 10 in Kentucky in the Forbes’ America’s Best Employers By State for 2021. The survey pinpointed organizations liked best by employees in each state.

Baptist Health is ranked fourth in the state, one of two healthcare providers to make the top 10.

“It is very gratifying to see Baptist Health ranked among the state’s best employers, especially with achieving this ranking during a pandemic, during which our staff has been incredibly resilient,” said Angie Mannino, chief people and culture officer. “This acknowledgement reinforces that Baptist Health is a great place to work -- fostering a rewarding working environment in which employees can have a successful and fulfilling career.”

Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to compile its third annual list of America’s Best Employers By State.

The Forbes list is divided into 51 rankings – one for each of the 50 states, plus the District of Columbia – and includes 1,461 employers that received the greatest number of recommendations in each state.

The respondents were asked to rate their employers based on a series of statements surrounding work-related topics such as salary, working conditions, and advancement opportunities. Statista then asked respondents how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others, and to nominate organizations in industries outside their own.

Surveys were conducted on a rolling basis from October 2020 to June 2021 and were anonymous, allowing participants to freely share their opinions.
