COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ohio Living, one of the nation's largest not-for-profit, multi-site aging services organizations, is now a Great Place to Work — Certified™ organization.
According to the Institute's website, a great place to work is defined as one where you trust the people you work for; have pride in what you do; and enjoy the people you work with.
"This certification confirms what we already know to be true; that we are an organization that values our employees, and we work hard every day to prove it," says CEO Laurence C. Gumina. "From the board room to the bedside, our 3,200 employees give their best to the people we serve. We hire people whose values are aligned with ours and whose personal character fits within our culture of respect."
Chief Human Resources and Ethics Officer Dana Ullom-Vucelich agrees. "We want our employees to find Ohio Living to be a genuinely great place to share their talents and thrive. Our employee partners scored Ohio Living at 90% or higher in having a great atmosphere with great pride, communication, rewards and bosses!"
Ohio Living identifies six core values at the heart of its operation — care, customer service, integrity, innovation, financial stewardship and leadership. Its employee culture and annual performance reviews of all teammates are designed to reward living out each of these values. "You can see example after example of these values brought to life each and every day through the work of our team members," says Ullom-Vucelich.
