HARTFORD, Conn., Jan. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CareCentrix, the leading provider of home-based post-acute care solutions, happily announces that it has been recognized by independent analysts at the Great Place to Work Institute with a certification as a 2019-2020 Great Place to Work. The certification process considered feedback from over half of the employees across CareCentrix's six locations.
Great Place to Work's 30 years of continual research demonstrates that the definition of a great workplace is one where employees trust their managers, take pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with. Business leaders, top research institutions, and the public rely on the Great Place to Work Trust Model as the definitive standard of what it means to be a great workplace. Great Place to Work evaluates more than 60 elements of employees' experience on the job. These include pride in the organization's community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning. Rankings are based on employees' experiences, no matter who they are or what they do.
"We are in a new era of what defines business success. For businesses to compete and win today we need to create companies that deliver for all of our teammates," said John Driscoll, CEO of CareCentrix. "Our goal at CareCentrix is to build a people growing machine that we all are proud of."
CareCentrix's track record of building an enterprise that employs its team's best ideas powered the win. Laizer Kornwasser, President and COO of CareCentrix said, "We are a much stronger company due to all of the new programs we have initiated based on our team's great ideas. And we are just getting started."
Some of CareCentrix's employee programs include:
CareCentrix Cares Fund: CareCentrix Cares was established by management to help meet critical needs of employees who are undergoing difficult challenges in their lives. CareCentrix Cares honors the obligations that our company believes that we have to support one another in times of need. The program is exclusively funded through the generosity of CareCentrix employees and more than 60% of employees contribute to CareCentrix Cares. The program is confidential, for both donors and recipients. Since 2015, we have distributed over $500,000 in financial assistance to more than 200 employees.
Voice of the Employee (VOE): CareCentrix believes that every employee at every level and area of the organization needs a voice in making CareCentrix a great place to work. The VOE team is selected through an annual application process and takes part in giving back to the community, helping team members live healthier lives, encouraging team members to have fun at work, and offering opportunities for personal and professional development.
The Women's Network: As an organization that is 80% female, CareCentrix believes that it is critical to support and promote advancement of our female teammates. Founded in 2017, the Women's Network is open to all employees and helps to promote the advancement and inclusion of women leaders at the company through networking opportunities and guest speakers. The Women's Network was recently featured in the Wall Street Journal and currently has over 300 members who participate in educational and networking opportunities.
"We applaud CareCentrix for seeking certification and releasing its employees' feedback," said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung, of Great Place to Work's senior care affiliate Activated Insights. "These ratings measure its capacity to earn its own employees' trust and create a great workplace for high performance."
