Bainbridge Island, Washington (Jan. 20, 2009) – McKesson Corp., a healthcare services and information technology company headquartered in San Francisco, was announced as No. 1 on the list of iSixSigma’s Top 10 Best Places to Work for Six Sigma professionals at the iSixSigma Live! Summit in Miami last week.

“McKesson’s strong Six Sigma culture and high employee job satisfaction proved to be their strongest points,” said Michael Marx, research manager for iSixSigma and the person who developed the matrix for measuring best places. Accepting the award for McKesson at the conference was Robert Gooby, a Master Black Belt and former Champion.

Companies on the Top 10 list, announced in December, had to meet the highest standards for providing an outstanding Six Sigma program, culture, training, compensation, recognition and job satisfaction for employees.

Highlights of McKesson’s top-rated Six Sigma program will be published in a profile in the March/April 2009 issue of iSixSigma Magazine.

Upon revealing the order of the Best Places to Work list, Marx noted, “On all accounts the scoring was very close. All of the companies on the list should be proud.”

Here are the rankings of the Top 10 list of iSixSigma’s 2008 Best Places to Work:
