Solid business performance, sustainable financial value, and strong team member and client engagement; it’s for these attributes that Health Catalyst earned a spot on Inc.’s Best-Led Companies list, ranking #38.
Unveiled earlier today, the Inc. magazine Best-Led Companies list is the publication’s first-ever roundup of companies that have proven management excellence across the middle market. The list recognizes “250 companies that are agile enough to maneuver but also big enough to have a broad impact.” Inc. shared that all 250 companies have a successful track record with leadership teams that spur solid performance, create value, penetrate markets, engage with customers, and more. Together, the companies on the list employ 35 million people, or about one of four U.S. workers.
“This inaugural list of companies represents the remarkable midsized companies, both public and private, often founder led, that are at the vanguard of reinventing American business,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. magazine. “With their leadership, all business will benefit from an exciting, competitive future full of possibilities.”
To be considered for the list, each company completed an application answering questions about its performance, executive team, and leadership. Applicants were then analyzed via an algorithm that identified the very best companies according to their leadership teams’ superlative accomplishments in four key areas: performance and value creation; market penetration and customer engagement; talent; and leadership team.
“We are grateful to be named to Inc’s first-ever Best Led Company list. Inclusion on the list is particularly rewarding because the achievement recognizes the importance that team member engagement plays in enabling company success and reinforces our practice of putting team members at the center of all we do,” said Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst. “We believe that dedicated, engaged team members who feel loved, valued, and respected, will lead to stronger, more meaningful client relationships, high client satisfaction, and ultimately yield strong business performance.”
To compile the list, Inc. evaluated private and public U.S.-based companies with a 2020 revenue of $50 million to $2 billion or a valuation of $50 million to $10 billion using a proprietary 12-point measure of management excellence generated with input from partners at Pitchbook and Shango Labs.
