Fortune Names Health Catalyst One of America’s Great Workplaces
Salt Lake City – October 13, 2016 – Health Catalyst, a leader in healthcare data warehousing, analytics and outcomes improvement, has been named one of the “100 Best Medium Workplaces,” by Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work®. The company ranked No. 32 on the annual list of medium-sized companies with between 100 and 999 employees, and is the only healthcare information technology supplier to make the 2016 list.
Health Catalyst earned this accolade based on employees’ anonymous responses to an extensive survey about their levels of trust, pride and camaraderie at work. Fortune partner Great Place to Work® reviewed the survey results of more than 52,000 employees from hundreds of companies in the ranking process.
The honor is just the latest in a series of accolades that recognize Health Catalyst’s unique work culture. Earlier this month, the company was named one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare magazine for the fourth consecutive year. In April, Health Catalyst became one of just 40 global companies to receive the 2016 Gallup Great Workplace Award, recognizing companies that create engaged workplace cultures.
“For years, our leadership team has felt that our success in accomplishing our mission is tied directly to our ability to attract and retain the best and brightest team members in our areas of expertise,” said Health Catalyst CEO Dan Burton. “We feel encouraged by the direct feedback from our team members that is reflected in this recognition.”
According to Great Place at Work, 97 percent of Health Catalyst team members say their workplace is “great.” Other findings highlighted by the survey include:
- 98% of team members say Health Catalyst management is “honest and ethical in its business practices”
- 98% believe management would lay people off only as a last resort
- 97% say they are encouraged to balance their work life and their personal life
Health Catalyst supports work-life balance for its team members with perks like unlimited paid time off, flexible schedules, telecommuting options, free food and drinks, and 84 days of maternity and paternity leave. The company supports a culture of health through monthly wellness reimbursements, a fitness program allowing team members to collect points and receive discounts on health insurance premiums, an onsite fitness center, and subsidized outside gym memberships. Health Catalyst also hosts regular family-friendly fun events like movie nights, baseball games, chili cook-offs, variety shows, fun runs for a cause, and picnics in the park.
“There’s a generosity of spirit that infuses the Best Medium workplaces-one that has a measurable return,” said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work. “Whether it’s funding employee ‘passion projects’ or giving surprise gifts to customers, the best workplaces give it away. And they get it back in the form of inspired people who innovate harder and generate higher revenue.”
Health Catalyst expects to have 90 job openings this year between its Salt Lake City and Minneapolis locations. Interested candidates can see available positions and submit applications at www.healthcatalyst.com/job-openings.

About The Best Small and Medium Workplaces
Published together with our partner, Fortune, the Best Small & Medium Workplaces rankings are based entirely upon feedback from more than 52,000 employees at Great Place to Work–Certified companies. Employees completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, for example, their assessment of the honesty and quality of communication by managers, degree of support for employees’ personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues.
Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 5% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by creating a great place to work for all – not only do the majority of their employees experience the company as a great place to work, but this experience is consistent across the organization, regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, job role, or other personal characteristics. The companies with the highest employee ratings compared with organizations of the same complexity in size and scope were selected for the list. Companies with fewer than 100 employees compete for placement on the 50 Best Small Workplaces list, and companies between 100 and 999 employees compete for placement on the 100 Best Medium Workplaces list.
