Best Workplaces in Aging Services
Ohio Living has been nationally ranked on Fortune magazine’s list of Best Workplaces in Aging Services. Ohio Living is the only Ohio-based organization on the list, appearing at number 22 out of 50 workplaces ranked.
This is the first year that Fortune has published a list for the aging services industry. To determine the rankings, Fortune research partner Great Place to Work analyzed survey results from more than 162,000 employees working in the industry. Ohio Living’s certification as a Great Place to Work is what qualified it to be considered for this prestigious honor.
“I believe the chief responsibility of management is to help our employees succeed in their efforts,” says CEO Laurence C. Gumina. “That’s why we provide our leaders with regular education and training to help them improve their leadership skills for the benefit of their teams. I want this investment in our leaders to result in our teammates finding Ohio Living to be the best place they’ve ever worked."
As a faith-based, not-for-profit organization, Ohio Living identifies six core values at the heart of its operation — care, customer service, integrity, innovation, financial stewardship and leadership. Its culture of appreciation and recognition is designed to reward living out each of these values.
“You can see example after example of these values brought to life each and every day through the work of our team members,” Gumina says.
What does this mean?
The certification process considered nearly 2,000 employee surveys from across Ohio Living’s locations. Great Place to Work, an independent research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experiences 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.
The rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do. All great workplaces are defined by employees’ levels of trust, pride and camaraderie. The best workplaces are characterized by additional factors that are essential in unlocking the full competitive power of their organizations’ cultures.
