Akron Children’s Hospital was once again honored by ERC as one of Northeast Ohio’s great workplaces for top talent. This is the 15th time Children’s has earned this regional award.

“Receiving NorthCoast 99 recognition is always gratifying,” said Rhonda Larimore, chief human resources officer at Akron Children’s. “However, earning this honor for a year highlighted by unprecedented change and challenges is particularly meaningful. In this rapidly changing environment, our employees continued to demonstrate their belief that working here is more than a job.

“We’re grateful for their dedication, flexibility and resiliency – and their unwavering commitment to caring for the children, families and communities we serve,” Larimore added. “In turn, our leadership team remains committed to supporting them by building an inclusive, diverse workforce – one that strengthens innovation, performance and engagement and provides a better experience and outcomes for patients and staff alike.”

Presented by ERC and now in its 23rd year, NorthCoast 99 recognizes 99 great workplaces in the region for their efforts to attract, develop, retain and motivate their top performers. All winners participated in a rigorous application process focusing on organizational strategy, policies and benefits; talent attraction, acquisition and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and talent development; total rewards; and diversity, equity and inclusion.
