The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation has been named to the Forbes list of America’s Best Small Employers 2023. This award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The list can be viewed on the Forbes website.
America’s Best Small Employers ranking was based on the analysis of over 7 million data points with over 11,000 companies with more than 200 employees, but fewer than 1,000. OMRF ranked No. 56 overall and the highest among Oklahoma employers. Placement on the final list was awarded based on a scoring model that considered the following aspects:
1. Employee Satisfaction / Public Opinion Data: This took the form of recommendations given by employees anonymously through online surveys. These were either direct recommendations (0 to 10 scores from employees of the company) or indirect recommendations (positive/negative evaluations of companies, reflecting public opinion). Additionally, employee retention (avg. length of employment) was considered.
2. Social listening data: The sentiment reflected in various sources across thousands of social media posts related to the company’s relationship with its employees is identified through an algorithm and deemed either positive, negative, or neutral based on textual analysis.
“OMRF is truly something special,” said OMRF Vice President of Human Resources Courtney Stevens Greenwood. “People want to come to work each day with a certainty that what they do matters, and they want to spend those days around others who feel likewise. That’s what we have built here – a personal and collective sense of ownership and fulfillment.”
