Treasure Coast Hospice Certified Great Place to Work
Great Place to Work Institute has honored Treasure Coast Hospice with certification as a Great Place to Work. The certification process considered employee surveys from across Treasure Coast Hospice’s two campuses. Great Place to Work, an independent research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning. Rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do in the organization.
This is the first year Treasure Coast Hospice has participated in the survey, with 83% of staff members saying that it is a great place to work compared to 59% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.
“Treasure Coast Hospice is honored to be recognized for being a Great Place to Work,” said CEO Jackie Kendrick, CHPCA. “Our team’s commitment to service and their dedication to delivering compassionate care to this community is what sets our organization apart. Hospice work is a calling that every member of our team takes to heart, creating a dynamic, collaborative environment where our staff members have the ability to truly make a difference in the lives of those we serve.”
According to the survey’s results, 97% of employees said their “work has special meaning” and they “feel good about the ways their work contributes to the community.” In addition, Treasure Coast Hospice was chosen as a top place to work because staff enjoy a sense of pride in their accomplishments, feel welcomed upon joining, and believe they are making a difference.
“We applaud Treasure Coast Hospice for seeking certification and releasing its employees’ feedback,” said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung of Great Place to Work’s senior care affiliate Activated Insights. “These ratings measure its capacity to earn its own employees’ trust and create a great workplace for high performance.”
