Global medical supplier honored for company leadership and employee training opportunities

Mundelein, Ill., Nov. 15, 2016

For the sixth year, Medline, 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 by employee surveys administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC and measured key qualities such as company leadership, compensation, training, work flexibility and diversity.

“Our continuous recognition on this list is a true testament to the strength of our company culture. As an innovative leader in the healthcare industry, Medline is fully committed to investing in our employees and making the company a great place to work,” says Karen Ferraro, chief human resources officer, Medline.

As Medline continues to grow and has doubled employee headcount, the company is moving into a newly-renovated, state-of-the-art headquarters in Northfield, Ill. that offers more than 716,000 square feet of space, more than double the size of the company’s three office buildings in Mundelein. Building features include advanced technologies to enhance meeting and a variety of lifestyle amenities such as outdoor walking trails, on-site credit union and a fitness center.

“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 WorkplaceDynamics. “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. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”
