This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses. The 2020 Best Places to Work in Illinois list is made up of 39 companies in the small employer category (15-99 U.S. employees), 19 companies in the medium employer category (100-499 U.S. employees), and 15 companies in the large employer category (500 or more U.S. employees). (Name of Company) has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Illinois in the (small/medium/large) category.
 
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
- Have at least 15 employees working in Illinois;
- Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in the state of Illinois; and
- Be in business a minimum of one year.
 
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Illinois. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Illinois and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
 
“It is an honor to be selected as one of the top 100 Best Places to Work in Illinois 2020.  I would like to thank the employees of Wabash General Hospital for taking the time to complete the survey.  We use the survey information to make changes and to keep improving.  This award is a testament to our staff’s hard work, dedication, and teamwork,” stated Bridget Shepard, Chief Human Resource Officer.
 
Wabash General Hospital will be recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Illinois awards ceremony coordinated by The Daily Herald Business Ledger on Thursday, August 20. The final rankings will be announced at the event, posted on the Business Ledger website (www.dhbusinessledger.com), and published in a special commemorative section on September 14. An unranked list of all honorees will be announced in the May 18 issue of the Business Ledger.
