Recognition is hard to come by at times. And in the healthcare field in the era of Covid, pure exhaustion has riddled frontline workers with new and urgent needs from their employers in order to simply do their jobs. Home Health Companions stepped up to ensure the well-being of their caregivers, and now we’ve been awarded for it.
The 2021 Best of Home Care Employer of Choice awards have just been announced, and for a third year Home Health Companions has been recognized as a “best of” employer.
The Best of Home Care Employer award gathers ratings from both clients and caregivers. It is described as a “badge of trust” that tells prospective employees that the business treats every stakeholder with the highest level of integrity.
When asked about the award, President and CEO Lisa Shardon said, “We’re honored, of course. Getting this recognition comes straight from the hearts of our clients and the caregivers on our team. Having received this award three years now, that leaves me confident that our efforts to support, educate and take care of our staff are really getting through.”
The efforts to educate, in particular, have garnered much attention recently at Home Health Companions. In the middle of 2020, as care providers worldwide were struggling under the weight of Covid-era demands, one of Shardon’s most impactful initiatives at the company was an internal one. She worked with the leadership team to create an on-demand “university” of training to give staff more tools and opportunity to move forward, and greater confidence in a wide array of clinical topics.
What does it mean to be a 2021 “best of” employer?
The Employer of Choice award starts with happy caregivers. The employer—in this case, Home Health Companions—is recognized for excellent caregiver satisfaction ratings, which typically go hand-in-hand with greater company efficiencies, client satisfaction, and clinical results as well.
This caregiver feedback is collected each year by an independent satisfaction research firm called Home Care Plus. A minimum of 10% of current caregivers must be surveyed for a company to qualify.
