October 11, 2022
In partnership with Springbuk, we are excited to announce our honorees for the 2022 Healthiest Employers of Greater Baltimore.
The Great Resignation has left many companies short-staffed and burnt out, but the policies put in place have helped combat these challenges and earned them a spot on this list. Employers have had to think outside of the box when it comes to workplace wellness, as the past few years have provided many challenges to the modern American office.
Data from our survey this year indicates that the Baltimore applicants:
- 91% offer tuition reimbursement
- 91% have a formal mentoring program in place
- 82% are on a hybrid work schedule
- 73% have more than 4 weeks of paid time off opportunities
- 36% offer at least one month of paid maternity leave
Each of these applicants took place in our corporate assessment, which is scored Rubric style on a 1-100 scale. The assessment is made up of six categories with yes/no, multiple choice, and short answer questions, with each question totaling .25-3 points. A Healthiest Employers Index (HEI) is assigned to each applicant to help rank among companies of similar size. All applicants are automatically entered into the Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America award. The 2022 winners will be announced October 5!
