“At NGHS, we do our best to make sure every person working here feels like a valued part of the team,” said Carol Burrell, president and CEO of NGHS. “There really is a sense of deep interdependence here – meaning we can’t do our job without each other. That’s what makes NGHS such a great place to work, and I’m proud that it’s being recognized by such a respected outlet like Forbes.”

In collaboration with market research company Statista, Forbes surveyed 80,000 employees working for businesses with more than 500 employees.
