Great Place to Work and FORTUNE have honored Northcrest Community as one of the 2019 Best Workplaces for Aging Services. The ranking considered feedback representing 223,183 employees working for Great Place to Work-Certified organizations in Senior Housing & Care and At-Home Care in the Aging Services industry. Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team. Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization. Northcrest ranked #2 nationally on the list.
“Northcrest is proud to be recognized by our people for creating one of the best workplaces in the Aging Services industry. We have a collaborative, inclusive and respectful culture across the board,” says Linda Doyle, CEO of Northcrest Community. “When we come to work, we know that it is about more than just clocking in and out. We know that, at the end of the day, no matter what department, we’ve made a difference in someone’s life.”
“You have to know that you are a part of a community and you are a part of a family”, Doyle says. “The connection between the residents who live here and the staff who work here—I don’t think you will find a better connection anywhere in any industry. Residents are appreciative and staff are willing. It is just a great place to live and work.”
“Whether it is a resident or a co-worker, when I bring people in to tour, one of the things I hear consistently is that it just feels different here."
“The value of creating great workplaces for all is a clear competitive edge in the Aging Services sector,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “When organizations like Northcrest treat their own people with care and respect, you can expect their staff to treat your loved ones with that same care.”
