CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 17, 2014 - Carolinas HealthCare System has been named a “Best Place to Work” by the national leadership organization Diversity MBA. The System was ranked No. 7 in the 2014 “50 Out Front Companies” list for being a top place for diverse and women managers to work.
The organization has shown measurable successes in building a diverse and culturally competent workforce, as well as a commitment by leadership to continue such successes. It earned "best in class" in several leadership categories – including recruitment, representation and workplace inclusion and retention – and it was the highest-ranking Charlotte-based organization on the list.
"The recognition by MBA Magazine is an affirmation of the inclusive culture of Carolinas HealthCare System,” said Debra Plousha Moore, chief human resources officer and executive vice president for the System. “It affirms the dedication of our diverse workforce to putting patients first – always. Whether delivering direct patient care or in a supporting role, our more than 60,000 teammates are proud of the role they play in enhancing our diversity and inclusion journey."
Diversity MBA's chief executive officer, Pamela McElvane, presented the recognition to Plousha Moore and to Joseph Piemont, president and chief operating officer for the System, at Carolinas HealthCare System’s 12th annual Diversity & Inclusion Symposium. The list is in its eighth year running and was published in Diversity MBA Magazine’s June issue.
According to McElvane, the ranking celebrates companies that implement intentional strategies that support inclusive and active diversity. Carolinas HealthCare System was the top health provider on our list with impressive results in its categories.
