Americare named a Great Place to Work

Americare Senior Living, which includes the River Bend Senior Living community in Great Bend, has once again participated in the Great Place to Work surveys to measure its own progress and compare itself to other companies participating in the annual program. For 2022 results just released, Americare has recorded strong advances in virtually every category, and was again designated as a Great Place to Work-Certified organization. 

The Best Workplaces in Aging Services results are based on survey responses from more than 220,000 current employees at participating companies across the country. In the overall “survey title” measurement, 84% of Americare’s employees said Americare is a great place to work. This number is 27 percentage points higher than the average U.S. company, and an increase of 4 percentage points over last year. 

“To see that our dedicated employees think our company is a great place to work is one of the highest rewards we can have as a company. And that our overall score is so much higher than the national average is remarkable,” said Clay Crosson, president and chief operating officer for Americare. “Our people make working at Americare communities across the mid-west a truly special experience every day. We celebrate and thank them for all they do to earn this incredible honor.”

On the all-important “trust index” of the survey, Americare earned an 80% score which is 4% higher than 2021 and 6% above the Assisted Living industry average. 

Among the other statistics in which Americare employees rated the company highly in the survey are:

• 92% of employees say my work has special meaning: this is not “just a job.”

• 92% of employees say people are treated fairly regardless of their race or gender.

• 91% of employees say this is a physically safe place to work.

• 89% of employees say when I look at what we accomplish, I feel a sense of pride.

• 88% of employees say people celebrate special events around here.

• 87% of employees say I’m proud to tell others I work here.

Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
