Rochester’s Mayo Clinic Wins Another National Award
The honors keep piling up for Rochester's own Mayo Clinic, with another national award coming earlier this week.
We already know Mayo Clinic is not only ranked #1 in the nation (for several years in a row now), but is also a pretty decent place to work. Heck, Mayo is the largest private employer in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, with over 30,000 Minnesotans (and don't forget those employees in Florida and Arizona too) earning a paycheck there.
And now, Mayo Clinic has once again been awarded the top score in a new survey when it comes to places to work for people with disabilities. According to this story from the Mayo Clinic News Network, Mayo Clinic nabbed a score of 100 on the 2018 Disability Equality Index of the Best Places To Work.
And, the story notes, this is the third year Mayo has scored 100 on that national survey. In fact, there are only 94 other companies in the country who also nabbed that top score. Not too shabby!
“Mayo Clinic is committed to inclusion for people of all abilities, and that is demonstrated by the actions taken to remove barriers for our patients and employees,” Dawn Kirchner, chair of the Disability Mayo Employee Resource Group at Mayo Clinic said in the story.
So, well done, Mayo Clinic! It's just another reason we're proud you call southeast Minnesota home!
