Utah Business magazine has honored ARUP Laboratories with a 2023 Best Companies to Work For Award. ARUP has earned this award every year since 2018.

December 1, 2023

SALT LAKE CITY—For a sixth consecutive year, Utah Business magazine has included ARUP Laboratories on its list of Utah’s Best Companies to Work For.

The magazine selects winners based on the results of an anonymous employee survey distributed through Qualtrics. Criteria for winning include employees’ perceptions of their company’s mission, culture, benefits, and compensation. The number of ARUP employees who responded with positive feedback earned ARUP the recognition again.

“To win this award for a sixth time is gratifying because it demonstrates that the employees, who are the heart and soul of our company, continue to view ARUP as a great place to work,” CEO Andy Theurer said. “Create a good working environment and employees respond with the hard work and commitment to patient care that distinguishes ARUP.”

Employees cited many of ARUP’s offerings in the survey, including the company’s free health clinic for employees and their family members, on-site daycare, tuition reimbursement program, and affordable insurance plans. They also rated the company’s mission and workplace culture highly.

This recognition follows a number of other employer awards received by ARUP in 2023. The Utah Worksite Wellness Council, for example, recognized ARUP with a Platinum Healthy Worksite Award and a Healthy Worksite Innovation Award to honor ARUP’s comprehensive, innovative wellness programs. Ragan Communications also recognized ARUP’s wellness program with its national Workplace Wellness Award.

ARUP also ranked on Forbes’ Best Employers by State list and was recognized as one of 100 Utah Companies Championing Women by In Utah on behalf of the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity and the Utah Women and Leadership Project at Utah State University.
