Shane Jackson accepts the 2015 award on behalf of Jackson Healthcare.

September 10, 2015 — Alpharetta-based Jackson Healthcare, one of the nation’s largest healthcare staffing companies, was named “best place to work” today by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

This is the second consecutive year the publication has given the top prize to the company founded by Richard L. Jackson, chairman and CEO of Jackson Healthcare.

Jackson Healthcare president, Shane Jackson, is quick to note, “The associates of the Jackson Healthcare companies have come together to build something amazing. Being named the 'best place to work' is a reflection of what they have created.”

Five core values drive Jackson Healthcare’s organizational culture: striving for excellence, doing the right thing, maximizing potential, esteeming the team and putting others first. Everything from its corporate headquarters to its campus amenities to its charitable giving is designed with these values in mind.

With more than 1,000 associates nationwide, the company emphasizes fitness and wellness programs, comprehensive benefits and support of charitable and community organizations to reinforce associates’ commitment to culture and performance. These investments earned the company additional honors by the Chronicle earlier this year as Atlanta’s Healthiest Large Employer.

“Our mission is to improve the quality of patient care and the lives of everyone we touch,” said Jackson. “The atmosphere our associates have created in working towards this mission is unparalleled.  I am so happy to be a part of it and excited that the Atlanta business community has once again recognized our associates' incredible work.”

The Atlanta Business Chronicle rated large companies with more than 500 employees with an employee survey by Quantum Workplace. The responses were rated on work environment, people practices and other matrices.
