Checkpoint Surgical recently was named by Crain’s Cleveland Business as one of the 2020 Best Employers in Ohio. The statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Ohio, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses.

“We are honored to be recognized by Crain’s as one of Ohio’s best employers,” said Checkpoint Surgical President and CEO Len Cosentino. “We work every day to create and maintain a mission-driven enterprise where every member of the team is valued and respected. It is very gratifying to know that our people enjoy their work and their colleagues and that they find fulfillment in our mission. I am very proud of our team, especially in these challenging times. It’s a privilege to be working with such good people on such important work.”

Crain’s annual list of the Best Employers in Ohio was created by Crain’s Cleveland Business and Best Companies Group. The 2020 Best Employers in Ohio list is made up of 42 companies.

Each participating company participated in a two-part survey process. The first part (25% of the total evaluation) was designed to evaluate the nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part (75% of the total evaluation) consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and final rankings.

Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Ohio and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
