To determine the first annual Best Workplaces in Aging Services list, Great Place to Work® analyzed anonymous survey feedback representing more than 162,000 employees working in senior housing and care as well as at-home care (including hospice) in the United States.
Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™. Just over 85 percent of our 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. We analyze these experiences relative to each organization’s size, workforce make up, and what’s typical in their industry and region.
The remaining pieces we consider include an assessment of all employees’ daily experiences of innovation and the effectiveness of their leaders, to ensure they’re consistently experienced by all groups.
