The Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG®) has been named a 2011 winner of The Principal® 10 Best Companies for Employee Financial Security. Presented by The Principal Financial Group®, The Principal 10 Best Companies is a national program recognizing growing companies that excel at helping employees build their financial futures through excellent benefits programs. Winners are selected by an independent panel of financial services and human resources experts that evaluate entrants on criteria such as the variety of financial benefits offered; the financial value of benefits offered; level of commitment to the financial security of employees; and the entrants’ industry, strength of benefits for that industry, and the demographics of their workforce.
ECFMG’s mission, promoting quality health care for the public, is critically important. Retaining the skill and expertise represented by ECFMG’s employees is essential to fulfilling this mission and to continuing to be responsive to its examinees and other constituencies. As observed by ECFMG’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Emmanuel G. Cassimatis, M.D., “Working in a positive environment and having colleagues who are happy to be here makes for a better atmosphere for everyone—and, ultimately, results in better service to our customers.”
