LAFAYETTE, La. (Oct. 16, 2018) – Lafayette-based LHC Group, a leading national provider of in-home healthcare services, has received the No. 1 ranking among the “Best Companies to Work for in Lafayette” – a list compiled by San Francisco-based career and job website Zippia.
According to Zippia, 65 Lafayette-area companies were ranked using data based on salaries, financial health, and employee diversity – criteria frequently mentioned by job seekers. The rankings were then matched with general company sentiments from online mentions and reviews. Data sources include the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Federal Election Commission, and Zippia’s proprietary collection of resumes and job data.
“LHC Group takes great pride in cultivating and maintaining a company culture that is unique – one that focuses on individual growth and development and empowers employees to provide a level of service in which they can take pride,” said Marcus Macip, LHC Group’s executive vice president and chief administrative officer. “It’s great to see that our commitment to being one of the healthcare industry’s top employers is being recognized by job seekers and independent experts.”
Founded as a single home health agency in Acadiana in 1994, LHC Group has grown to become the nation’s largest provider of in-home healthcare services through its home health, hospice, home and community based services, and facility-based care locations in 36 states.
Zippia provides information to help job seekers find and compare companies across a variety of industries. According to their website: “Zippia extracts intelligence from real world experiences to provide the best information and tools for people to achieve their career plans.”
“There are so many great companies across the country, but we noticed that, often, it’s the same list that gets all the recognition,” said Chris Kolmar, Zippia’s director of marketing. ”Many lists require some sort of payment or nomination process to be considered. That’s why we created this program to independently study every company we could find, based on the criteria job seekers have told us are important to them.”
