MedReps survey finds best companies to work for in 2020

December 10, 2019 has recently released the findings from its 9th Annual Best Places to Work in Medical Sales survey, with responses from over 1200 professionals in the medical sales field. Top companies to work for were Syneos Health, Teleflex, and CONMED. 

Additionally, the survey identified that the qualities and values most important to medical sales reps today were work-life balance (83%), supportive and collaborative co-workers (53%), and trustworthy leaders (53%). 

“This year, we found medical sales employee satisfaction is at a record-breaking high,” said Karyn Mullins, president at MedReps. “An incredible 90% of medical sales respondents say they’re satisfied with their jobs. We believe this jump is a result of employers focusing on various factors impacting employees, specifically a positive corporate culture through growth opportunities and the ability to make a difference in others’ lives.”

Other notable findings from the survey included:
* 35% of respondents say the best part about their job is the ability to make a difference/impact.
* Only 17% said positivity is an important leadership characteristic. Instead, they want them to be honest and trustworthy.
* A mere 11% of respondents said they are in an active job search.
* When asked, “What is the best part of your job?” 24% of respondents said “opportunity for growth.”

“Job satisfaction correlates with a low number of medical sales reps actively looking for new jobs, which is pleasantly unusual,” Mullins said. “However, to become a Best Place to Work in the eyes of your employees, it’s still critical to focus on and continually evolve the people-aspects of your organization.”
