Healthtech Consultants Ranks #10 Within the Top 50 Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada!

Toronto, Ontario, January 12, 2009 – Healthtech Consultants is pleased to be named among the Top 50 Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada. Healthtech Consultants, an information management and information technology consulting firm focused exclusively on the healthcare industry, was ranked 10th on the list. The study, now in its fifth year, is published in The Globe and Mail.

“I am honored that Healthtech Consultants has been named among one of the Top 50 Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada,” said Susanne Flett, President and Founder of Healthtech Consultants. “I founded Healthtech Consultants out of a need to make a difference in the healthcare information management and information technology industry. Today’s announcement that Healthtech Consultants is part of this prestigious list demonstrates the passion and commitment that our consultants have towards our organization and to improving the delivery of patient care through the use of technology.”

Becoming a Top Best Small and Medium Employer is a very detailed and competitive process. This national awards program recognizes top employers with between 50 and 400 employees. This study mirrors the renowned Best Employer in Canada initiative run by partner, Hewitt Associates; however, caters to smaller businesses.

The rankings are primarily determined using the results from Employee Opinion Surveys. Here, 18 key engagement drivers are detailed and analyzed. The evaluation process also includes the assessment of organization practices and perspectives from the leadership team. This year, more than 250 companies across Canada registered to participate in the study.

A detailed breakdown of the winner rankings can be found in the Careers section of the Wednesday, January 14, 2009 edition of The Globe and Mail or online at:
