Homecare Insider, April 18, 2016
Bad actors and poor working conditions grab a lot of attention in homecare, but not all. Three home health agencies made the list of Fortune’s “20 Best Workplaces in Health Care,” posted on Fortune’s website last week. The HHAs that made the cut among healthcare organizations were:
Encompass Home Health and Hospice, of Dallas, Texas, second overall on the survey. Encompass has 8,140 employees and 230 sites.
Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services, of Eatontown, New Jersey, No. 3 on the list, which has 167 employees in 14 locations.
Great Lakes Caring, of Jackson, Michigan, 18th on the roster, with 22 locations and 1,376 employees.
The list, which included companies of all sizes, was compiled by Great Place to Work Institute, an executive coaching and culture consulting services provider to businesses, non-profits and government agencies. The survey was based on employees’ ratings of factors such as organizationwide communication, ethical management, rewards, and whether workers were provided the resources and equipment to do their job.
