Jackson + Coker Recognized as an AJC Top Workplace

Ranked among the best companies to work for in Atlanta by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Jackson + Coker, a leading locum tenens agency, today announced it has won the Top Workplaces 2021 Award, given by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Jackson + Coker ranked #5 in the midsized company category. The award ranks Jackson + Coker among the best places to work in Metro Atlanta for associate engagement and satisfaction. This is the third year running that Jackson + Coker has won this distinction.

The Top Workplaces list is based solely on associate feedback gathered by Energage, an employee engagement company, which administered surveys to all Jackson + Coker associates. Associates were encouraged to give honest, anonymous feedback to measure the company’s culture drivers including engagement, leadership and benefits.

As a leading locum tenens agency, the COVID-19 pandemic greatly impacted the company and its healthcare partners. Through the uncertainty, Jackson + Coker’s associates remained committed to its mission to connect providers and communities to transform lives.

“Jackson + Coker’s associates could not be more deserving of the Top Workplaces 2021 Award,” said Tim Fischer, President of Jackson + Coker. “They make Jackson + Coker the best place to work each day – whether we’re in the office or working virtually during COVID. Our associates’ support and compassion for one another, desire to strive for excellence and commitment to serving our healthcare partners are commendable attributes that make ours a top-notch team.”

Jackson + Coker believes in supporting its associates’ well-being and helping them meet their goals both personally and professionally. During COVID-19, the company has enhanced its benefits to include digital learning support for school-age children of associates and offered scholarships for families who need help to take advantage of these opportunities.

The company’s associates drive the culture, leading initiatives to enhance the company and serve their communities. These include an associate-led philanthropic committee, which organizes fundraisers and volunteer events aimed at increasing access to healthcare, supporting foster children, serving senior citizens and protecting the environment and animals.

Jackson + Coker believes in an inclusive workplace where all associates have the support and resources they need to succeed. Associates have the opportunity to participate in networking groups including the People of Color Network, the PRIDE Network, the Young Professionals Network and the Women’s Network. They also have dedicated time for learning opportunities and can participate in leadership training programs to propel their careers.

In addition to this recognition of its internal culture, Jackson + Coker recently received the 2021 Best of Staffing Awards for Client and Talent Satisfaction from ClearlyRated in recognition of excellent customer service. Jackson + Coker is part of the Jackson Healthcare family of companies, the fourth-largest healthcare staffing firm in the country.
