Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services Named 2019 Great Place to Work®
How do your employees feel about your company? For the fourth year in a row, Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services has been named a Great Place to Work®* (GPTW) in the health care industry.
Jonathan Herman, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Preferred, said, “I am so happy and proud that our organization was certified a Great Place to Work® for the fourth year in a row. It’s a testament to our employees and the wonderful culture we’ve worked hard to build, maintain, and foster.”
Determining a Great Place to Work® is based on employees’ assessments of the pride they take in their jobs, the camaraderie they experience with coworkers, and the trust they feel toward Preferred’s leaders. According to Herman, a near-record amount of people responded to the questionnaire.
The results showed 99 percent of employees feel Preferred is a safe place to work; 98 percent said Preferred celebrates special events; 97 percent of employees felt very welcomed when they joined Preferred; and 97 percent feel a sense of pride when reflecting on what they and the company have accomplished. In total, Preferred’s overall score increased by two percentage points to 89 percent which, according to the GPTW representative, was one of the highest scores he had seen with comparable-size companies.
Among other comments, this one sums up the feelings of most of Preferred’s employees: “This company does an excellent job of making people feel like they are appreciated and belong. All of the offices have different personalities, strengths and weaknesses but in the end we are all here for one common goal and that is to provide the best care possible to our clients.”
Preferred is always looking for candidates who have contributed to society in meaningful ways, including putting more back into their communities than they take out. For example, Preferred looks for employees who have volunteered at local charities, nonprofits, or other community-based organizations.
