DLO named to Best Places to Work in Oklahoma listThe Journal Record will recognize 40 Oklahoma companies at the 2018 Best Places to Work in Oklahoma program, which identifies and honors the state’s best employers, on Nov. 1 at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. This is the 13th consecutive year Diagnostic Laboratory of Oklahoma (DLO) has been selected as a finalist for this annual award.

“As an Oklahoma-based company, this recognition is extremely important to the employees of DLO," said Dennis Hogle, DLO’s Chief Executive Officer. "Our staff understands the importance of our role in providing innovative, timely and quality medical laboratory services to assist healthcare providers in making critical clinical decisions for our fellow Oklahomans. Our culture of service and quality is seen throughout our organization, and I am extremely proud of our employees and the dedication they have to DLO in order for us to be recognized for 13 years in a row."

The Journal Record teamed up with Best Companies Group to honor Oklahoma business and organizations excelling in creating quality workplaces. Companies are selected based on employee interviews and a look at their workplace policies, practices and demographics. Final ranking positions will be announced at the awards event. All 40 companies will receive the results of their surveys, which reveal their workplace strengths and weaknesses. Categories studied include: Leadership and Planning, Corporate Culture and Communications, Role Satisfaction, Work Environment and Relationship with Supervisor.

“The event is just the cherry on top," said Journal Record events manager Brittany Attaway.

The companies can put these findings into practice immediately for the betterment of the organization."
