A complete list of companies named to Forbes’ “America’s Best Employers of 2022” is available at https://www.forbes.com/best-large-employers.
Forbes and Statista selected the America’s Best Employers 2022 through an independent survey applied to a vast sample of approximately 60,000 American employees working for companies with more than 1,000 employees in America.

Employee evaluations also included other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively.
“At Philips, our purpose is to improve 2.5 billion lives a year by 2030, including 400 million in underserved communities. This can only be accomplished with a team of dedicated professionals who share a passion to put our healthcare partners and patients first,” said Richard Kranz, head of HR at Philips North America. “Recognition as one of America’s Best Employers reflects our culture of promoting personal development, inclusion and diversity and validation of the environment we have created where each person can be their best and help improve people’s health and well-being through meaningful innovation.”
The ongoing focus on people remains a priority at Philips and the company has been recognized for efforts in this area over the past year.
