BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. — Great Place to Work Institute has honored ComForCare and At Your Side Home Care with certification as a Great Place to Work. The certification process considered thousands of employee surveys from across the U.S. Great Place to Work, an independent research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee 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.
“Our franchise owners put a great deal of effort toward caregiver satisfaction, which leads to increased retention and client peace of mind,” said J.J. Sorrenti, CEO of Best Life Brands. “Our unique program, CaregiverFirst, focuses on rewarding employees for their excellent client service and exemplifies our unique culture. We couldn’t be more proud of our family of franchisees for earning this distinction.”
Caregiver training is a critical component of ComForCare and At Your Side Home Care’s culture. This year, the company rolled out a monthly training program to ensure caregivers can grow in their field and equip them to handle a variety of situations, such as managing fall risk, dementia behaviors, Parkinson’s disease, and identifying red flags of stroke, diabetes, and more.
