Fortune magazine recently published its 2008 list of “100 Best Companies to Work For,” and four companies headquartered in Ohio made the list.

Ohio Health, of Columbus, ranked 18th nationally, in part for its comprehensive employee reward systems. J.M. Smucker, of Orrville, ranked 47th, earning high marks for employee retention. Portsmouth-based Southern Ohio Medical Center, with a strong focus on patient caregiving, came in 75th in the nation. Superior retention also helped Sherwin-Williams, based in Cleveland, earn 98th place.

National Instruments, with a location in Cleveland, and Vision Service Plan, with a Columbus facility, also made the list.

Fortune considered such factors as job growth, pay, turnover, benefits, treatment of women and minorities, and culture in selecting the top employers of 2008. To see the full report, visit http://money.cnn.com/magazines/fortune/bestcompanies/2008.
