2020 makes this the 11th year for 180 Medical, a leading provider of home-delivered catheters, ostomy supplies, and incontinence products, to be named one of the Best Places to Work in Oklahoma. In addition, at the recent virtual award ceremony held by the Best Companies Group and the Journal Record, 180 Medical placed 4th out of all large companies in the state.
The Best Companies Group determines the winners of the annual Best Places to Work awards through a detailed process. First, they research the business practices and company cultures of Oklahoma-based employers. Next, employees from each company fill out anonymous surveys about their work conditions, job benefits, and more.
COVID-19 Pandemic Added a New Element of Judging in 2020
As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed a lot about the world, including how many of us work. That’s why this year’s Best Places survey included questions about employees’ experiences during this time. Topics included employees’ health and safety as well as how well each company communicated their plans.
180 Medical acted quickly at the start of the pandemic by putting our employees’ health and safety first. The majority of employees who are able to perform their jobs remotely began working from the safety of their homes, while our Shipping Specialists and warehouse staff began wearing PPE and sanitizing their workstations throughout their shifts.
Going mostly virtual in 2020 hasn’t taken away from 180 Medical’s positive company culture that our employees love and appreciate. Instead, we’ve grown closer as an organization by making more digital connections. Plus, we continue to foster and uphold our positive values together as a team united in a mission of service.
