Last year, Tom Spann, chief executive officer of Accolade Inc., was named the top leader for small workplaces in the Philadelphia region. At that time, the company had 72 employees in the area.
This year, Spann was again named a top leader, based on employee responses to this prompt: I have confidence in the leader of this organization.
But now he's No. 1 for leadership among midsize workplaces. That's because a year of growth has more than doubled the regional head count of Accolade, based in Plymouth Meeting, to 152 employees.
Spann has said he is building the health-care management company on mottos of doing the right thing for clients and taking care of each other as teammates.
