Senior Helpers is recognized as the first and only national in-home senior care provider to achieve Great Place to Work certification.
The Great Place to Work® Institute is the global authority on high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures. As a highly respected independent certification organization, its programs “recognize outstanding workplace cultures and provide the benchmarks, framework and expertise needed to create, sustain and celebrate outstanding workplace cultures for all.” This was the first time that Senior Helpers had applied for certification and the company was very pleased with the results. The survey was sent to more than 12,000 franchise and corporate employees and measured over 60 elements across the company and its operations. The ratings are extremely positive along every factor; 89% of Senior Helpers employees said the company is a great workplace; 95% agreed that their work has special meaning – it is not just a job; and 93% feel good about the ways Senior Helpers contributes to the community.
What does Senior Helpers Chief Marketing Officer Chuck Sulllivan Have to Say About this?
Senior Helpers Chief Marketing Officer Chuck Sullivan said, “We are honored to receive this certification and humbled that our employees find value in our mission and the company.” Sullivan explained that company culture is an important driver of overall success. “We work closely with our franchise owners to build a culture of involvement. Our employees really care about our clients, and we are happy hat they feel appreciated for their work." For those considering options as either a prospective employee or franchisee, Sullivan recommends paying close attention to both the company culture and the future growth potential of the industry. “In addition to our great culture, the growth projections for in-home senior care market is staggering. The volume of aging adults in the US has been referred to as a ‘silver tsunami’ because it represents a huge generational wave of seniors who will need care.”
