Respect for team members, high levels of trust, and a commitment to fostering a healthy work-life balance are only a few of the reasons Health Catalyst earned a spot on Fortune’s Best Workplaces for Women™ 2023 list.
To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place To Work analyzed the survey responses of over 600,000 women who work for Great Place To Work Certified™ companies.
Earning a spot the prestigious list means that Health Catalyst is one of the best companies to work for in the country, according to Fortune Magazine. While Health Catalyst’s commitment to strong company culture and engagement have earned the company recognition year-after-year, for women team members in particular, the company’s adherence to respect has created a standout environment where they feel they can excel.
“For me, one of the most important cultural attributes that sets us apart is respect,” said Becky Vea People Operations, SVP. “As a working mom, it is important that I work for a company that understands I’m balancing multiple priorities—taking kids to school, going to sporting events and other activities–and a full-time job, with a goal to do a good job at both.”
Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst, underscores the importance of the principle of respect as well as trust to set team members up for success.
“One of our operating principles at Health Catalyst is respect and we strive to extend respect, love, and care to every team member, including caring for their whole selves both at work and outside of work,” Burton said. “Because we respect and care deeply for every team member, we want them to work at a sustainable and long-term pace, which means we need to support them and trust them with the flexibility to choose the right location and set up to do the best work.”
One other way Health Catalyst puts its values into action is through the company’s support of women in STEM careers. Efforts include the creation of an employee resource group (ERG), Women Empowered (WE) in 2018, and taking the ParityPledge, a corporate commitment to interview and consider at least one qualified woman for every open leadership role.
Currently, women make up more than 37 percent of Health Catalyst’s 8-member board, and women make up 40 percent of Health Catalyst’s 22-member leadership team. This is the fourth recognition Health Catalyst has received in 2023 for its efforts to support women in tech. Earlier this year, the Women Tech Council named Health Catalyst to its Shatter List, Inspire In Utah named Health Catalyst one of the 100 Companies Championing Women in Utah, and Newsweek named Health Catalyst one of America’s Best Workplaces for Women in 2023.
