Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE have honored Trilogy Health Services as one of the 2020 Best Workplaces for Aging Services. The ranking considered feedback representing 189,159 employees working for Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations in Senior Housing & Care and At-Home Care in the Aging Services industry.
Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team.
Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization. Trilogy Health Services took the No. 4 spot on the list.
“This award is a direct reflection of the caliber of people we have working here at Trilogy,” commented Leigh Ann Barney, President and CEO of Trilogy Health Services. “Over the past several months, our employees have been tested in ways most cannot even imagine, and throughout it all, they have kept our culture of compassion and servant leadership alive. In turn, we have continued to invest in programs designed to help every team member achieve success, both personally and professionally. This cycle of caring is what makes Trilogy a great place to work, and it all starts with our employees.”
The Best Workplaces for Aging Services stand out for exceling in a competitive industry. Today, nearly half of Trilogy employees are growing their skillsets and their wages by participating in one of the company’s apprenticeship programs. One in fifteen Trilogy employees are also taking advantage of a free online college degree through Trilogy’s partnership with Purdue Global. Since 2019, Trilogy has reduced the student loan debt of its employee base by over $4,498,386, provided nearly $5,062,000 in education assistance, and granted $854,000 in emergency assistance awards for employees who were in crisis. Trilogy also offers its employees Dave Ramsey’s Smart Dollar program, which to date helped employees eliminate $427,257 in debt and add $242,120 in savings.
“The value of creating great workplaces for all is a clear competitive edge in the Aging Services sector,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “When organizations like Trilogy treat their own people with care and respect, you can expect their staff to treat your loved ones with that same care.”
“The effect of engaged employees has magnified in the aging sector, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung, CEO of Activated Insights, the senior care company of Great Place to Work. “We have found that organizations that have maintained or increased employee engagement during this year’s challenges have been able to be more resilient, provide enhanced care, and perform better.”
