Star Tribune Again Names Olmsted Medical Center a ‘Top 100 Workplace’ in 2013

Posted in All Business Announcements

ROCHESTER, Minn. - For the second year in a row, Olmsted Medical Center (OMC) has been named one of Minnesota’s Top 100 Workplaces based on an employee-based survey from the Star Tribune. The Star Tribune Top Workplaces special section was published in the Star Tribune on Sunday, June 16. The report can also be found at StarTribune.com/topworkplaces2013.

Produced by the same team that compiles the 22-year-old Star Tribune 100 report of the best-performing public companies in Minnesota, Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions about company leadership, communication, career opportunities, workplace environment, managerial skills, pay and benefits. The analysis included responses from nearly 64,300 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.

The rankings in the Star Tribune Top 100 Workplaces are based on survey information collected by WorkplaceDynamics, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention. Olmsted Medical Center ranked #30 on the list of large Minnesota companies that also includes Whole Foods Market, UCare, and the Minnesota Twins.

In 2012, OMC’s average employee tenure was 9.8 years and its turnover rate sank to 7.6 percent. Recently, one of OMC’s accounting office staff members retired after nearly 55 continuous years of service!

To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Over 1,900 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.

Olmsted Medical Center (OMC), a not-for-profit organization, has been southeastern Minnesota’s hometown healthcare provider since 1949. OMC’s 160 clinicians and 1,000 healthcare professionals serve at 18 locations, including two outpatient multi-specialty clinics, a Level IV trauma hospital with 24-hour emergency room, two walk-in FastCare retail clinics in Rochester Shopko stores, a Skyway clinic in downtown Rochester’s 318 Commons Building, and nine community branch clinics. OMC has more than 20 specialties and is best known for its convenient, quality personal primary care.
