2016-gptw_header_banner_final

Health Catalyst, a leader in healthcare data warehousing, analytics and outcomes improvement, has been named one of the “100 Best Medium Workplaces,” by Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work®.  The company ranked No. 32 on the annual list of medium-sized companies with between 100 and 999 employees, and is the only healthcare information technology supplier to make the 2016 list.

Health Catalyst earned this accolade based on employees’ anonymous responses to an extensive survey about their levels of trust, pride and camaraderie at work. Fortune partner Great Place to Work® reviewed the survey results of more than 52,000 employees from hundreds of companies in the ranking process.

The honor is just the latest in a series of accolades that recognize Health Catalyst’s unique work culture. Earlier this month, the company was named one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare magazine for the fourth consecutive year. In April, Health Catalyst became one of just 40 global companies to receive the 2016 Gallup Great Workplace Award, recognizing companies that create engaged workplace cultures.

“For years, our leadership team has felt that our success in accomplishing our mission is tied directly to our ability to attract and retain the best and brightest team members in our areas of expertise,” said Health Catalyst CEO Dan Burton. “We feel encouraged by the direct feedback from our team members that is reflected in this recognition.”

According to Great Place at Work, 97 percent of Health Catalyst team members say their workplace is “great.” Other findings highlighted by the survey include:

  • 98% of team members say Health Catalyst management is “honest and ethical in its business practices”
  • 98% believe management would lay people off only as a last resort
  • 97% say they are encouraged to balance their work life and their personal life

Health Catalyst supports work-life balance for its team members with perks like unlimited paid time off, flexible schedules, telecommuting options, free food and drinks, and 84 days of maternity and paternity leave. The company supports a culture of health through monthly wellness reimbursements, a fitness program allowing team members to collect points and receive discounts on health insurance premiums, an onsite fitness center, and subsidized outside gym memberships.  Health Catalyst also hosts regular family-friendly fun events like movie nights, baseball games, chili cook-offs, variety shows, fun runs for a cause, and picnics in the park.

“There’s a generosity of spirit that infuses the Best Medium workplaces-one that has a measurable return,” said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work. “Whether it’s funding employee ‘passion projects’ or giving surprise gifts to customers, the best workplaces give it away. And they get it back in the form of inspired people who innovate harder and generate higher revenue.”
