EVERETT, WA: The Everett Clinic is pleased to announce it has been named one of FORTUNE® Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list for the second year in a row. The Clinic is extremely excited to have earned a spot on this prestigious list. This year’s list includes some of the country’s best-known and most successful companies such as Google, Starbucks, Mayo Clinic, Microsoft and DreamWorks.

The Everett Clinic ranked No. 87 on the list, up 4 slots from last year’s ranking of 91. The Clinic’s commitment to 100% coverage of employee health insurance premiums and its employee recognition program were among the top reasons for selection, according to FORTUNE®.

The Clinic is one of 12 healthcare organizations nationally to make the list and one of only 2 medical organizations on the West Coast.

To pick the 100 Best Companies, FORTUNE® partnered with the Great Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. Two-thirds of the Clinic’s score was based on the results of the survey. It included questions to measure levels of trust, pride and camaraderie within the workplace.

The other third of the scoring was based on the Clinic’s response to the Institute's culture audit, which included detailed questions about workplace practices including compensation, paid time off and benefit programs, internal communication, hiring, training and development opportunities, appreciation and recognition programs, giving back to the community and how the Clinic encourages fun among staff.

The full 2012 FORTUNE “100 Best Companies to Work For” list and related stories will appear in the February 6th issue of FORTUNE magazine. It is viewable now at:
