Madison, WI – For the second year in a row, Great Place to Work® and Fortune have honored Exact Sciences as one of the Best Workplaces in Health Care & Biopharma™.
The ranking considered more than 825,000 employee surveys from companies across the health care and biopharma industry and Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. Exact Sciences took the No. 14 spot on the list.
“We are very proud that during such a challenging year, our team continues to consider Exact Sciences an engaging and rewarding place to work. We’re honored to celebrate our employees’ unwavering commitment to our mission of changing the way we think about and treat cancer,” said Sarah Condella, Executive Vice President of Human Resources at Exact Sciences. “Feedback is important to us and through these surveys, we gain insights from our growing workforce on ways we can continue to improve and be a great place to work for all.”
With the COVID-19 pandemic and the reckoning over racial injustice, 2020 challenged workplaces to examine how they ensure employees are safe, respected, and heard. At Exact Sciences, the Talent Strategy & Inclusion team held employee listening sessions that informed a new inclusion strategy focused on fostering a supportive environment where all team members can grow, driving health equity, and creating stronger communities. In response to the pandemic, Exact Sciences and other collaborators worked quickly to stand up COVID-19 testing. What started as an effort to provide testing to employees evolved to supporting the public health response within the company’s home state of Wisconsin and across the country.
“Congratulations to the Best Workplaces in Health Care and Biopharma™. All of us owe a debt to the nurses, doctors, scientists and other colleagues in this industry over the past year, and we are honored to recognize the organizations that have done right by these pandemic heroes,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO Great Place to Work®. “The leaders of these high-trust, inclusive companies can expect excellent business results thanks to their ‘For All’ cultures.”
Exact Sciences is hiring for a wide variety of positions across its organization. Current career opportunities can be found at www.exactsciences.com/careers.

About the Fortune Best Workplaces in Health Care and Biopharma™:
Great Place to Work based its ranking on a data-driven methodology applied to confidential Trust Index™ survey representing over 825,000 employees working in the Health Care & Biopharma industries in the United States.
Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do. Great Place to Work analyzes these experiences relative to each organization’s size, workforce make up, and what’s typical relative to their peers in the industry.
The remaining 15 percent of the rank is based on an assessment of all employees’ daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders, to ensure they’re consistently experienced.
To be considered, companies had to meet the Great Place to Work-Certified standard. To ensure survey results truly represent all employees, Great Place to Work requires that Trust Index© survey results are accurate to a 95% confidence level with a 5% margin of error or better. We review any anomalies in survey responses, news and financial performance to ensure there aren’t any extraordinary reasons to believe we couldn’t trust a company’s survey results. Health Care companies with 10 to 999 people were considered for the small and medium health care category, health care companies with 1,000 employees or more were considered for the large health care category, Biopharma companies with 10 or more employees were considered for the Biopharma category, and those that appear on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list in their respective industry category are ranked first.
