Leading provider of in-home senior care awarded high-profile industry honor spotlighting employee satisfaction and people-focused culture
BALTIMORE — Senior Helpers®, the nation’s premier provider of in-home senior care, is proud to announce it has achieved the prestigious Great Place to Work® certification for the fourth consecutive year. As the first national in-home care company to be awarded this distinction in 2019, Senior Helpers’ rapidly growing business is dedicated to continually providing safe, quality and compassionate care to older adults, helping to alleviate the stresses associated with caregiving for seniors and their families. The company currently operates 344+ territories across the country and will continue to open new territories throughout this year.
“It’s extremely rewarding for the entire organization to see our commitment to creating a positive culture come to light through obtaining the Great Place to Work® certification for the fourth time,” said Peter Ross, Senior Helpers CEO. “At Senior Helpers, we strive to create a workplace environment built upon the values of inclusion, appreciation, respect and compassion, and we’re thrilled to know that our employees consistently report having a positive experience. Ultimately, our employees are the ones who drive us forward and we truly believe that caring for them allows them to provide the best care for our seniors.”
Senior Helpers was granted this prominent designation by Great Place to Work for the fourth year in a row 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. This highly regarded honor evaluates employee pride and camaraderie, as well as the company’s overall community impact, and will help Senior Helpers to attract new talent and new clients. 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 critical to the assessment process.
“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. “This honor measures Senior Helpers’ capacity to earn the trust of its employees while creating a supportive workplace that fosters collaboration and high performance.”
