The Jewish General Hospital has been named one of Canada’s best employers in a survey by Forbes magazine.

Of the 300 companies and organizations in the private and public sectors that made the Forbes list, the JGH came in at number 209.

The JGH is also one of only three healthcare centres in Quebec on the list, along with the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (#132) and the Centre hospitalier universitaire de Sherbrooke (#232).

“It’s an honour to be recognized among the best in Canada,” says Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg, President and CEO of CIUSSS West-Central Montreal, of which the JGH is a member facility.

“This recognition is especially meaningful at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic is placing such a great strain on the healthcare system. By continuing to support our employees during this crisis, we are enabling patients to receive the best possible care under the circumstances. Our reputation as a top employer is what helps us recruit and retain first-rate employees in numerous clinical and non-clinical fields.”

“The purpose, values and innovative goals of our organization serve to attract the most talented and dedicated individuals,” says Beverly Kravitz, the CIUSSS’s Director of Human Resources, Communications, Legal Affairs and Global Security.

“We take the well-being of our staff to heart,” Ms. Kravitz adds. “Our goal is to ensure that they have a challenging and rewarding career in a stimulating, safe and supportive environment.

“This past year has been incredibly difficult and our devoted staff have risen to the occasion. We are deeply grateful for their passion and commitment to ensuring top-quality care for the population we serve.”

Working with Statista, market research firm, Forbes polled more than 8,000 Canadians working for businesses with at least 500 employees.

The surveys were administered in a series of online panels, which provided a representative sample of the Canadian workforce. All of the surveys were anonymous, allowing participants to openly share their opinions.

On a scale of zero to 10, the respondents were asked to rate the likelihood of recommending their employer to other people. Then Statista also asked the respondents to nominate organizations other than their own.
