WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA), the nation's leading provider of kidney care products and services, has been named one of Newsweek's Most Loved Workplaces for 2021, ranking #42 among the top 100 companies recognized for employee happiness and satisfaction at work. Newsweek specifically cited the company's work around diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) stating that it is an "emphasis for everyone." Ranked as one of the top three healthcare companies on the list, FMCNA is also the sole representative of the dialysis and kidney care industries.
"The dedication of our employees throughout the pandemic has demonstrated our commitment to providing superior care to our patients and is a testament to the true heart of our invaluable workforce," said Bill Valle, CEO of Fresenius Medical Care North America. "Receiving this honor is especially meaningful this year, as our employees have been working tirelessly in challenging circumstances to ensure our patients have access to the life-sustaining care they rely on us for. 'The Most Loved Workplace' honor is a tribute to the love that our employees have always shown to our patients, their work, and each other, and validates who we are – a team of caring people that treats all others with empathy, compassion, and respect. I am especially humbled by the recognition of our efforts around diversity, equity, and inclusion. We know we are better together and stronger when everyone is truly valued and cherished."
FMCNA continues to focus on listening to the needs of employees and provide leading benefits, education, support, and growth opportunities. With benefits like paid family leave, and offering both childcare stipends and supplemental pay to frontline healthcare workers during the height of the pandemic, the company has attracted the very best talent from across the country. FMCNA continues to be mindful of the ongoing impact that the pandemic has on the mental health of frontline workers through providing internal support groups, tools, and resources to ensure all employees can continue to bring their best selves to work.
"At Fresenius Medical Care North America, we work relentlessly to provide exceptional support for our direct patient care team members and other healthcare professionals so they can prosper and provide world class care for our patients," said Brian Silva, Chief Human Resources Officer and Senior Vice President, Administration for Fresenius Medical Care North America. "Being named a 'Most Loved Workplace,' is recognition our employees are connected to our mission and values, and they have the support needed to grow and excel in their careers."
Produced in collaboration with the Best Practice Institute (BPI), a leadership development and benchmark research company, the Newsweek list results were determined after surveying more than 800,000 employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 10,000. The full Newsweek list of 2021's Most Loved Workplaces will be featured in the magazine's October 29 print edition and is currently available online.
"In the wake of the pandemic, business hit hurdles in terms of retaining and attracting employees – but the companies that made this list are delivering the respect, care, and appreciation that it takes to create a positive workplace that nurtures talent," said Nancy Cooper, Global Editor in Chief, Newsweek.
