This is the first year LinkedIn has recognized Top Companies in 10 different cities throughout the U.S.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be included on the list of the 2021 LinkedIn Top Companies in Atlanta,” said Linda Matzigkeit, Chief Administration Officer of Children’s. “Caring about People is one of our core values at Children’s because we know that people are our strength.
