Global medical supplier honored for company alignment, execution and

a global medical supplier that serves the continuum of care, has been
named to the Chicago Tribune Top Workplaces list.

The top 100 companies in the Chicagoland area on this year’s list were
determined solely by employee surveys administered by Energage, LLC
(formerly WorkplaceDynamics), and measured key qualities such as company
alignment, execution and leadership. This is the seventh year Medline
has received the recognition.

“We strive to create a work environment that promotes innovation and an
entrepreneurial mindset and offers opportunities for employees to grow
their career within the company,” says Karen Ferraro, chief human
resources officer, Medline. “All across the world, Medline plays a
strategic role in helping healthcare systems improve patient outcomes
and reduce costs with innovative solutions. We could not do what we do
without the dedication of our employees. Their efforts have driven our
growth and success over the past 50 years.”

Medline recently moved its corporate headquarters to a newly-renovated
campus in Northfield, Ill. Set on 70-acres, the building features
advanced technologies to enhance meetings and encourage collaboration,
and lifestyle amenities such as a fitness center, basketball court,
walking trails and a cafeteria with healthy food options.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes,
people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug
Claffey, CEO of Energage. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must
meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to
ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the
employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most
important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is
headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in
it together.”
