AmeriHealth New Jersey Named One of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey

Cranbury, NJ - February 23, 2012 - AmeriHealth New Jersey has been named one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey. This survey and award program identifies, recognizes and honors the top places of employment in New Jersey that benefit the state's economy, its workforce and businesses.

“We pride ourselves on being a grassroots corporation within the state,” said Judith L. Roman, president and CEO of AmeriHealth New Jersey. “Being recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey is truly an honor for AmeriHealth New Jersey.”

The Best Places to Work in New Jersey program is made up of 100 companies split into two groups: 52 small- and medium-sized companies (15-249 employees) and 48 large-sized companies (more than 250 employees). AmeriHealth New Jersey has been named one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey in the small- and medium-sized company category.

To qualify, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have at least 15 employees in New Jersey
  • Be a for-profit, not-for-profit or government entity
  • Be a publicly or privately held business
  • Have a facility in New Jersey

Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the 100 Best Places to Work in New Jersey. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This phase was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This phase was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

The overall registration and survey process was managed by Best Companies Group (BCG). BCG also analyzed the data provided and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

The award program, created in 2005, is produced by NJBIZ. NJBIZ, program sponsors and partners will honor this year’s 100 Best Places to Work and announce their ranking during an awards dinner and ceremony on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 at the Hilton East Brunswick.
