Western Reserve Hospital has been named a 2022 NorthCoast 99 award winner by ERC, the Employers Resource Council. The NorthCoast 99 award honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent. This is the 9th consecutive year the hospital has received the prestigious NorthCoast 99 award.
“More than a business award or event, NorthCoast 99 is a yearlong research program that ERC established to help make our region a long-term destination of choice for companies and high-performing individuals,” said Samantha Marx, ERC’s Director of Strategic Projects, who oversees the NorthCoast 99 program. “The data from this program helps employers adapt their policies and practices to attract and retain top-notch talent.”
NorthCoast 99 winners participated in a rigorous application process that required detailed information on how their organization addresses top-performer attraction, development, and retention in the areas of organizational strategy, policies, and benefits; talent attraction, acquisition, and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and talent development; total rewards; and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
“Winning this award many years in a row is evidence of the culture we have created within Western Reserve Hospital,” said Heather L. Milicevic, Vice President and CHRO, Western Reserve Hospital. “We are proud of our employees and all they have done, especially throughout the pandemic, to keep our patients safe and comfortable while getting back to their daily lifestyle.”
“It’s no surprise that the 2022 NorthCoast 99 winning organizations are leading our region! These outstanding companies prioritize the employee experience, offering attractive benefits and innovative policies that today’s workforce demands. We’re thrilled to recognize the winning companies and look forward to sharing their success stories,” said Kelly Keefe, ERC President.
