OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- It was late 2017 when Dr. Jacquelyn Kung met with a friend who runs the well-regarded Great Place To Work® Institute. That meeting led to Fortune Magazine agreeing to start a Best Workplaces list for the "Aging Services" industry. The inaugural list is released today.
The over age 65 population is the fastest growing age segment, and with over decades of research showing how great cultures lead to better patient outcomes, this first-ever Best Workplaces in Aging Services list is a hallmark.
"Great Place To Work Institute and Fortune realize that senior care is a legitimate industry and deserving of its own list," said Dr. Kung.
Powered by more than 30 years of research, Great Place To Work's methodology enables companies to build a high-trust, high-performance culture. Once you get GPTW certified, which includes surveying all employees using the 60-question proprietary Trust Index™, Fortune Magazine puts you in a pool of eligibility for recognition on lists where you could be in the company of Four Seasons, Delta Airlines, Marriott, etc.
In 2017, the Harvard Business Review reported that great cultures provide 'benefits including better industrial relations and higher employee productivity'. In 2018, Activated Insights signed a research agreement with Harvard Medical School.

The Trust Index methodology has been studied in dozens of peer-reviewed journal articles and described in a TEDTalk.
"This is different than just surveying a company," Dr. Kung noted. "For our industry, it will be taking off the stigma a bit, so it becomes, 'Wow, this is an industry where you can build a career.'"
