Syntero Named Among Top Workplaces in the Nation

Syntero has been named a Top Workplace in the United States! In 2020, Syntero employees participated in a survey from Columbus CEO and Energage, an employee engagement platform, to assess employee satisfaction levels and work culture. For the first time ever, survey results were used to select top workplaces in the nation. The survey included more that 1,100 employers in the United States, Puerto Rico and Guam.

“Syntero is honred to receive this prestigious recognition,” Syntero CEO Julie Erwin Rinaldi, M.ED. said. “Our staff – medical professionals, licensed professionals, administrators and support team – are among the best in Central Ohio. Incorporating our values of integrity, empowerment, innovation and inclusiveness into all aspects of client care and our operations has created a solid, respectful culture throughout our organization and enables Syntero to impact so many people in the communities we serve.”

Syntero was named a Top Workplace by Columbus CEO in 2020 and 2018. Results of Columbus CEO’s Top Workplaces 2021 survey will be announced in May.
