Tampa-based Moffitt Cancer Center has been recognized on the Forbes list "America's Best-in-State Employers" for 2023. The award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., according to Forbes magazine.

The center says the best employers were selected based on 2 million recommendations from people working for companies with more than 500 employees in the United States. The recommended employers were grouped into one of 25 industry sectors. Employers with operations in more than one state were ranked in multiple states.

"To know this award is based on feedback from our team members, who remain focused every day on our mission to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer, is especially meaningful," says Amy Durham, vice president of the center's human resources operations. "It reflects our commitment to fostering an environment where every voice is valued and contributes to our collective success."

The evaluation is based on three criteria, according to Forbes. Participants were prompted to evaluate employers in their state that stand out either positively or negatively. Participants were also prompted to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively. And employees were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family.

Employees were asked to give opinions on a series of statements surrounding work-related topics, such as working conditions, diversity, salary, potential for development and company image regarding their current employer, the center says. Moffitt has also been recognized as a high-performing organization in other rankings, including as Forbes' "America’s Best Employers for Women 2023," "Best and Brightest Company to Work For in the Nation" and the Tampa Bay Times Top Workplace.

Moffitt is dedicated to the prevention and cure of cancer. The Tampa-based facility is one of 54 National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers. Moffitt has an economic impact in the state of $2.4 billion, Moffitt officials say.
