Vetter Senior Living named one of nation’s best workplaces
Vetter Senior Living has once again been recognized by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE as one of the 2019 Best Workplaces for Aging Services. The Great Place to Work® Institute surveyed more than 230,000 Senior Care employees from across the nation to create the second annual Best Workplaces in Aging Services List.
Heritage of Bel-Air in Norfolk is a member of the Vetter Senior Living family.
According to the 2019 survey, 90 percent of Vetter Senior Living team members say their work has special meaning, that it’s not “just a job” and 91 percent feel a sense of pride in the work they accomplish serving seniors.
Vetter Senior Living provides services and living options for rehabilitation, independent and assisted living and skilled nursing. More than 3,600 team members serve the elderly in thirty-two locations in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Wyoming.
The Best Workplaces for Aging Services is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations.
Vetter Senior Living facilities were also recently awarded nationally for creating an outstanding experience for their customers and employees. NRC Health ranked Vetter Senior Living #1 for Employee satisfaction and #8 for Customer satisfaction among senior care centers nationwide.
The NRC Health Customer Approved Awards are based on ratings from both family and residents across Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Skilled Nursing care settings. Similarly, the NRC Health Employee Approved Awards are based on ratings gathered from employees of Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing facilities.
“When it’s time for a loved one to enter a senior living facility, it can be a difficult and emotional experience for everyone involved,” said Glenn Van Ekeren, President at Vetter Health Services. “We’ve worked hard to ensure that our residents and their families feel safe, valued and cared for, and a large part of that has been the unwavering compassion and dedication of our team members. Without their skills and incredible empathy, we would not have earned an award in either of these categories.”
