Today, the Great Place to Work® organization and Fortune magazine have honored Americare Senior Living as one of the 2021 Best Workplaces in Aging Services™. Earning a spot means that Americare is one of the best companies to work for in the country.
The Best Workplaces in Aging Services list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
All of us at Americare are so grateful for our dedicated employees who have made us a part of this list for 2021. Our people in our communities serving our residents and their families every day are our heroes. We celebrate and thank them for all they do to earn this incredible honor, especially after this challenging last year and a half.
I believe that recognition of this type is a direct result of our culture of trust in each other to make good decisions and of family taking care of family. During this very difficult last 16 months #AmericareStrong has been our rallying cry. We have gotten better at many things and have never been more dedicated than we are today to our culture of caring, family values, uber transparency and communication, and always learning what we can do for each other from each other. I believe these are the cultural attributes that a Great Place to Work should exemplify.
80 percent of Americare’s employees said Americare is a great place to work. This number is 21 percentage points higher than the average U.S. company.
And, among the statistics in which Americare employees rated the company highly in the survey are:
- 91% of employees say my work has special meaning: this is not "just a job."
- 87% of employees say when I look at what we accomplish, I feel a sense of pride.
- 86% of employees say I feel I make a difference here.
- 85% of employees say people here are given a lot of responsibility.
- 85% of employees say I'm proud to tell others I work here.
The survey that results in selection as an honoree is highly complex and of the highest integrity, which makes being selected very difficult. To determine the 2021 Best Workplaces in Aging Services™, Great Place to Work® analyzed anonymous survey feedback representing more than 220,000 employees working in Senior Housing & Care and At-Home Care in the Aging Services industry in the United States.
Employees responded to more than 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do. Great Place to Work analyzes these experiences relative to each organization’s size, workforce make up, and what’s typical relative to their peers in the industry. The remaining 15 percent of the rank is based on an assessment of all employees’ daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of leaders, to ensure they’re consistently experienced.
