DALLAS – June 8, 2017 -- Essilor of America today announced that the company has been named the No. 1 healthcare and equipment services employer in the U.S. by Forbes magazine. The company ranked No. 75 overall on the magazine’s 2017 “America’s Best Employers” list.
The rankings were based on a survey of 30,000 American workers to gather their opinions about their employers. The survey asked how likely workers were to recommend their organization to friends or family, and those results were the most important factor in determining a company’s position on the list.
