Aurora makes "Best Places to Work" list for second time

Thursday, October 16, 2003

Aurora Health Care has been named by Milwaukee Magazine as one of the “Best Places to Work” in southeastern Wisconsin for 2003. This is the second time Aurora has made the exclusive list. “We’re extremely pleased to be on the list again,” said G. Edwin Howe, Aurora President and CEO.

“We’re always challenging ourselves to find better ways in our organization, and that includes creating a work climate that attracts and retains the best and the brightest in all fields.”

To be named to the Best Places to Work list, firms filled out an extensive on-line application that asked detailed questions in 10 categories, including salaries, training, promotional practice, range of benefits and perks, work-life balance, diversity, employee voice in the workplace and community involvement.

Milwaukee Magazine said 105 companies completed surveys. Randomly selected employees from semi-finalist companies were asked to fill out anonymous, confidential surveys. Those surveys were scored and combined with the in-depth surveys to compile the final list. MRA-The Management Association, a not-for-profit organization that partners with businesses to maximize employee and corporate performance, conducted the surveys on behalf of the magazine.

The “Best Place to Work” award is the latest recognition Aurora Health Care has received in this area.

Aurora received the 2002 Governor's Diamond Award, which recognizes businesses and organizations implementing innovative initiatives to provide women and people of color with enhanced employment opportunities in upper management and decision-making positions.

Aurora was the first health care provider in the history of the Diamond Award to be recognized for efforts to build a more diverse and skilled Wisconsin workforce.
