BALTIMORE, July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Senior Helpers®, a recognized leader in providing personalized in-home care, today announced the company has achieved certification as a Great Place to Work® for the second consecutive year. The company was the first national in-home care company to be awarded this distinction in 2019. Senior Helpers' rapidly growing business is dedicated to providing safe, quality and compassionate care to older adults and their families. The company has opened 29 new Senior Helpers locations since the beginning of 2019 and continues to set sights on additional openings this year.
Senior Helpers was granted this prestigious designation by Great Place to Work after undergoing a rigorous, data-driven evaluation which considers more than 60 elements of the team member experience derived from surveys and feedback from more than 12,000 employees, regardless of their role in the organization. The evaluation considers employee pride and camaraderie, as well as the company's positive community impact. The belief that each employee's work makes a true difference for clients, and the recognition that the time and care team members put in everyday has special meaning is especially important to the assessment process. Ninety-four percent of employees surveyed reported that their work has "special meaning" and it is not "just a job."
"At Senior Helpers, we've built a culture that values inclusion, appreciation, respect and compassion," said Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers. "It brings us joy to know our employees consistently report a positive experience with our company. I'm proud that – even as we scale up – our employees stand behind our core values which makes Seniors Helpers such a great place to work. We believe caring for our employees allows them to better care for our seniors."
"We applaud Senior Helpers for seeking certification and releasing its employees' feedback," said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung, of Great Place to Work's senior care affiliate Activated Insights. "These high ratings measure Senior Helpers capacity to earn its employees' trust and create a great workplace for high performance."
The Great Place to Work Trust IndexTM methodology includes an exacting survey taken by millions of employees in thousands of companies annually. It represents the gold standard in measuring culture and employee engagement.
