At Christian Village Communities, we have always recognized that one of the many factors that sets us apart from competitors is our excellent staff. As we have grown through the years we have never compromised our standards in hiring the most qualified, most compassionate and most professional team members to serve our residents. We pride ourselves in providing excellent benefits, fair wages, and a safe, comfortable and enriching environment in which to work. They are our most valuable resource, and they are amazing.
We are constantly looking for ways to improve their work lives. To that end, In February of this year employees of both The Christian Village at Mt. Healthy and The Christian Village at Mason participated in an employee survey conducted by a professional survey group, Workplace Dynamics. We wanted to know how they felt about their jobs and the company for which they worked. After all, one of the initiatives in our Strategic Positioning document is to be an “Employer of Choice among Peer Organizations.” We needed validation that we were headed in the right direction.
33,000 employees participated in the survey from 171 firms. Employees responded to 23 questions in two categories, Organizational Health and My Job, that ranged in content from communication, company culture, their managers, and pay and benefits. The CVC scores were above the national benchmark (Healthcare – Senior Living) in nearly every area. The findings of the survey were gratifying. As a result of what our employees reported, Christian Village Communities was designated as one of Greater Cincinnati’s Top 100 Workplaces of 2016.
The Cincinnati Enquirer devoted a section of the June 5 Sunday edition to Top Workplaces. In this section our CEO Larry Monroe is quoted as saying: “Care is at the heart and soul of everything we do. Our ability to deliver on our promise of exceptional service and extraordinary health care for our retirement community residents and patients hinges upon maintaining a happy, productive, and motivated team of employees. I’m very proud that Christian Village Communities has been recognized as a Top 100 Workplace, and it is my distinct pleasure to lead an organization dedicated to demonstrating how much each team member is valued.”
We are honored to receive this designation, and grateful to our staff who provided valuable and thoughtful input in the survey. This does not mean that we will stop working on this important strategic initiative, but it does validate our efforts. We will continue to develop and grow and find new ways to serve our valuable employees and earn the title of Employer of Choice.
