NorthCoast 99 designates Children’s as one of the best places to work

Northcoast 99 best workplaces


For the fifth time, the Employers Resource Council (ERC) named Akron Children’s Hospital one of the best places to work in northeast Ohio. The hospital will receive its 2011 NorthCoast 99 award at a Sept. 14 ceremony.

“It’s exciting to be recognized once again among the region’s top employers,” said Betty Lucci, director of Human Resources at Akron Children’s. “We believe that the satisfaction and wellbeing of our employees is directly related to our ability to carry out our mission to care for all children, regardless of their ability to pay. Receiving this honor is a testament to that commitment.”

NorthCoast 99 is an annual recognition program that honors the 99 best workplaces for top talent in northeast Ohio. The program was developed by the ERC, Northeast Ohio’s largest employers’ association. Since 1999, the NorthCoast 99 award has recognized a number of organizations for their ability to maintain great workplaces that support the attraction, retention and motivation of top performers.

NorthCoast 99 designation is based on a detailed application and survey of top performing employees. The ERC specifically examines the policies and practices that address the quality of seven, fundamental workplace characteristics: flexibility, opportunity, recognition, development, security, support and talent integrity.
