SSM Health named a Glassdoor ‘Candidates’ Choice Best Place to Interview’ in 2017

SSM Health ranked No. 6 overall out of 100 recognized organizations, which include leading U.S. health care, business services, technology, retail, aerospace and defense companies

Madison, Wis. (Aug. 16, 2017) – SSM Health has been named one of 100 winners among Glassdoor’s annual Candidate’s Choice Awards, honoring the Best Places to Interview in 2017 according to those who know best—the candidates. Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job sites, released its annual report highlighting the best places to interview, based on candidate feedback shared over the past year.

Among all U.S. companies considered, SSM Health received an impressive overall interview experience rating of 83 percent, based on positive interview experience ratings, interview duration, and level of interview difficulty shared on Glassdoor throughout the past year. The rating puts SSM Health at No. 6 overall out of the 100 U.S. companies recognized by Glassdoor.

“We received an overwhelmingly positive response from our candidates on their interview experiences, which is the result of hundreds of quality daily interactions between our candidates, recruiters, hiring managers and staff,” said Thomas Ahr, System Vice President of Talent for SSM Health. “Our commitment to providing an exceptional candidate experience parallels our commitment to providing an exceptional patient experience and employee experience at SSM Health.”

Specific actions taken by SSM Health over the past year to enhance its interviewing and hiring practices include:

  • actively collaborating with and listening to the needs of our internal and external customers;
  • publically sharing and living up to “Our Promise to Candidates
  • launching a new interview program, “Hire for Fit,” to help create an exceptional candidate experience and support effective hiring;
  • incorporating an interview self-scheduling tool for candidate convenience;

  • offering online chat opportunities for applicants nationwide to interact with recruiters and hiring leaders in real time; and,
  • providing job seekers in the communities we serve with tips for interviewing, resume advice and more to aid them in their job search at SSM Health or other employers.

“The interview process is the gateway experience that employers have with a candidate, and you only get one chance to make a great first impression. These employers stand out from the rest for offering a best in class candidate experience that is vital to turning quality candidates into amazing employees,” said Carmel Galvin, Glassdoor chief human resources officer. “I congratulate these employers for efficient, effective and innovative interviewing and hiring practices. It’s no easy task, but employers who get this right will have the recruiting and business advantage.”

Glassdoor’s 100 Best Places to Interview in 2017 list features winning employers across diverse industries spanning healthcare, business services, technology, retail, aerospace and defense and more. Candidates’ Choice Award winners for the 2017 Best Places to Interview are determined using Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, in which an employer’s overall interview experience rating is mostly taken into account, along with factors including interview difficulty rating and interview length (number of days for the interview process). At a minimum, employers for the U.S. list (those with 1,000 employees or more) must have received at least 50 Glassdoor-approved interview reviews, including at least 50 interview experience ratings, from U.S.-based employees between July 2, 2016 and July 1, 2017.
