LinkedIn, an industry leader in professional networking and career development, has recognized Akron Children’s Hospital as one of the 25 Top Companies in the greater Cleveland-Akron-Canton area. The rankings are based on LinkedIn’s analysis of company data focusing on seven pillars that have been shown to lead to career progression: ability to advance, skills growth, company stability, external opportunity, company affinity (supportive culture), gender diversity and educational background.

“Receiving this recognition from an organization that specializes in connecting people with jobs that allow them to fulfill their potential is extremely gratifying,” said Rhonda Larimore, chief human resources officer. “We strive each day to provide the support and flexibility our employees need not only to be successful in the current roles but also to pursue career paths at Children’s that allow them to grow professionally.

“Our employees understand that working here is more than a job,” Larimore added. “Even in these challenging times, they continue to carry out their roles with the same grace and compassion Akron Children’s employees have always shown to our patients, families and each other. We remain committed to supporting their dedication by working to ensure Children’s provides a diverse and inclusive work environment where we treat each other with dignity and respect.”
