For the 10th straight year, okc.BIZ has selected DLO to its Best Places to Work in Oklahoma program, which identifies and honors the state’s best employers. DLO ranked third on a list of 32 Oklahoma companies that were chosen by Best Companies Group. This organization selects and ranks competition entrants by collecting and analyzing data from both employer questionnaires and employee surveys to determine which companies have the best practices.
“We are very proud to be listed among the best places to work in Oklahoma and in the healthcare industry,” said Bill Mosteller, CEO of DLO. ”Our employees take great pride in the service they provide to our clients and enjoy caring for the citizens of Oklahoma.”
The rankings were announced at an awards reception and dinner held on September 22nd. The annual awards event was held at Embassy Suites Oklahoma City/Downtown Medical Center in the Grand Ballroom. Over 300 attendees representing 32 companies celebrated as the awards took place.
The event was co-hosted by Tierra Media Group Publisher Bill Bleakley and Marketing and Advertising Director Christy Duane.
“The businesses honored as the 2015 Best Places to Work in Oklahoma are a testament to the outstanding culture in our state. This program proves that Oklahoma is not only a great place to live and raise families, but it also defines Oklahoma businesses as a top source in recruiting national talent. The companies honored tonight are an affirmation that the Oklahoma business sector is achieving significant advances in the local and global marketplace,” said Bleakley.
Diagnostic Laboratory of Oklahoma (DLO) was recently named to the national top 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare list. Cassie Boswell, Senior Human Resources Generalist, DLO, accepted on behalf of the company at the awards event in Nashville, Tennessee.

“We were notified in August that we had made the national list for the second year in a row,” said James McKissick, Senior HR Business Partner, DLO. “Last year was the first time DLO competed at the national level.”
In 2014, DLO was recognized as being the 77th Best Place to Work in Healthcare nationally. At the Gala event this year, DLO was presented with the honor of being the 34th Best Place to Work, moving upward 43 places. Additional category rankings placed DLO 18th in the Supplier category and 12th in the Medium Sized employer category.
