Milicevic, Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Unity Health Network. “Our organization is filled with some of the best, most skilled employees in every department and we are thankful for their dedication to our patients each and every day.”

NorthCoast 99 is an annual recognition program and event in its 22nd year that honors 99 great places to work Northeast Ohio.

“More than a business award or event, NorthCoast 99 is a yearlong research project that ERC established to help employers make a notable difference not only in the lives of their employees, but also in the economic vitality of their communities,” said Samantha Marx, ERC director of client service, who oversees the program.

NorthCoast 99 winners participated in an arduous application process that required detailed information on how their organization addresses top-performer attraction, development and retention in the following areas: organizational strategy, policies and benefits; talent attraction, acquisition and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and talent development; total rewards; and diversity and inclusion.

“Especially during these unprecedented times, we’re thrilled to recognize and celebrate this year’s NorthCoast 99 award winners,” said Kelly Keefe, president of ERC. Winning organizations are elevating the employee experience with increasingly progressive and innovative HR practices and benefits that are critical in today’s market. We look forward to sharing the success stories of our esteemed winners.”
