BRIDGEPORT – Jewish Senior Services (JSS) has received certification as a Great Place to Work from the Great Place to Work Institute, it was announced recently by Andrew H. Banoff, president and CEO of JSS.
In making their determination, Great Places to Work, an independent research and consulting firm, surveyed more than 600 JSS employees from across the disciplines. They evaluated more than 60 elements of employee experience at work, including 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 employee experiences, regardless of position in the organization.
“Jewish Senior Services is unique in culture and I am so proud of all the employees whose contributions made this recognition of being a Great Place to Work, possible,” said Banoff in announcing the designation. “Their commitment to providing high quality care balanced with high quality of life has given us a reputation of excellence.”
“We applaud Jewish Senior Services 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.”
