CHICAGO – The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) today announced it has been selected as a 2021 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® in the Nation. This marks the fifth consecutive year the Society has received the designation. The honor identifies companies that display a commitment to excellence in operations and employee enrichment that lead to increased productivity and financial performance.
“We are thrilled to receive this recognition for the fifth year in a row, which wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of our employees as we work to support one another, our members and the specialty during this unprecedented time,” said Paul Pomerantz, ASA CEO. “At ASA, we are committed to cultivating a diverse and inclusive workplace that empowers our employees to excel professionally and personally, and our core values are at the heart of all that we do.”
This year, the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) is releasing results for the Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in the Nation from its spring, summer, fall, and winter application cycles. The summer Best and Brightest program honored 184 national winning organizations, including ASA, from across the country, out of 1,500 nominations. Winners will be recognized during the virtual Illuminate Business Summit week in November 2021 and spring of 2022.
Best and Brightest national winners are scored based on regional data of company performance and a set standard across the nation. This year’s winners raised the bar and scored above the benchmark in the following categories: Compensation, Benefits and Employee Solutions; Employee Enrichment, Engagement and Retention; Employee Education and Development; Recruitment, Selection and Orientation; Employee Achievement and Recognition; Communication and Shared Vision; Diversity and Inclusion; Work-Life Balance; Community Initiatives; and Strategic Company Performance.
“The Best and Brightest is a powerful community of elite leaders who share ideas and practices, and have proven they are employers of choice,” said Jennifer Kluge, president and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs. “Best and Brightest winning companies have also been a voice for important actions in creating a sustainable culture that works, ensuring the wellbeing of their employees come first.”
In June, ASA was also named a 2021 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For® in Chicago. This is the fifth year the Society has received the designation.
