Oak Street Health Recognized as a Top Workplace Across the Country
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 22, 2022--
Oak Street Health (NYSE: OSH), a network of value-based primary care centers for adults on Medicare and the only primary care provider to carry the AARP name, today announced it has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2022 honor by The Chicago Tribune, amNY Metro, Nola.com and The Oklahoman, in addition to Energage’s 2022 Top Workplaces USA award.
The Top Workplaces awards are based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution, and connection.
“As a mission-driven organization, we know we must care for our teammates in order for them to provide the best care possible to our patients,” said Brian Clem, Chief Operating Officer of Oak Street Health. “We work hard to provide an environment where Oakies feel included, empowered and appreciated, and it is incredibly meaningful to be recognized, based on their direct feedback, as a great place to work across the country. I am so proud of our growing team that works together every day to transform primary care for older adults and rebuild healthcare as it should be.”
The Oak Street Health team is currently more than 5,900 employees strong across 21 states. The Company’s commitment to DE&I has created a culture and organization that is fundamentally inclusive where all teammates have a sense of belonging and can thrive professionally. Currently, 55% of our workforce identifies as Black or Hispanic/Latino and 57.8% of all managers and leadership are female. This dedication to building diverse teams and hiring employees to mirror the communities in which Oak Street Health serves has been a crucial part of how the Company both attracts and retains top talent, and delivers measurably better healthcare outcomes.
“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”
