AristaMD, provider of the leading telehealth eConsult solution, is one of the highest-scoring businesses, with standout employee engagement, meriting inclusion in Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces
SAN DIEGO, California – May 16, 2019 – AristaMD, provider of the leading telehealth platform that delivers timely, documented access to specialist insight through its eConsult solution, has been named one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2019, Inc.’s fourth annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector.
The list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Collecting data on nearly 2,000 submissions, Inc. singled out 346 finalists.
“At AristaMD, we pride ourselves in creating a spirited, collaborative, and innovative environment that our employees enjoy coming to every day,” said Brooke LeVasseur, CEO of AristaMD. ““As the market for eConsults is experiencing rapid and widespread adoption, we strive to create a company culture that’s focused on innovation, creativity, and a mission to transform the delivery of care to improve patient outcomes. We’re honored to be recognized as one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces for 2019!”
Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Omaha’s Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. Inc. gathered, analyzed, and audited the data then ranked all the employers using a composite score of survey results. Across nominees this year, 74.2 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work—beating last year’s 72.1 percent.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It’s a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
All companies had to have a minimum of 10 employees and be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent—that is, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:
- 99 percent provide health insurance—and some cover the cost.
• 49 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
• 65 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.
• 16 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
“With today’s tight labor market, building a great corporate culture is more important than ever,” says Inc. magazine editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from.”
